The shoulder is easily injured because the ball of the upper arm is larger than the shoulder socket that holds it. To remain stable, the shoulder must be anchored by its muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

Although the shoulder is easily injured during sporting activities and manual labour, the primary source of shoulder problems appears to be the natural age-related degeneration of the surrounding soft tissues such as those found in the rotator cuff. The incidence of rotator cuff problems rises dramatically with age and is generally seen among individuals who are over 70 years. Overuse of the shoulder can lead to more rapid age-related deterioration.

Commonly treated shoulder concerns:

  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Biceps Tendinosis
