Shoulder and Elbow Pain

Suffering from Shoulder or Elbow Pain?

The second most common reason to visit an osteopath is shoulder and arm pain. There are many causes of shoulder pain, the most common being sporting injuries, repetitive strain injuries, pain referred from the neck and degenerative conditions such as arthritis.

Accurate diagnosis of why the shoulder is painful is necessary to make sure any treatment is effective. Osteopathy benefits many of the causes of shoulder pain.

The most common causes of arm pain are 'tennis elbow', 'golfer's elbow' and carpal tunnel syndrome. All these conditions can be relieved and improved by osteopathic treatment. Any pain in the arm or hand may be referred from the neck, so a thorough assessment is needed to determine the cause.
