Shoulder Injuries


Shoulder injuries affect people across the lifespan and are often associated with traumatic sports injuries as well as chronic or age-related changes in the joint and tendons. Shoulder pain and shoulder injuries affect both men and women and can significantly impact quality of life and participation in sport and everyday activities (e.g. hanging out the washing, golf, lifting a child).
