Shoulder Injuries Clinic

The shoulder is held in place by muscles and bands of connective tissue called tendons and ligaments. Gradual injury to soft tissue occurs with long-term overuse, such as repetitive lifting, pushing, pulling and throwing. For this reason, athletes and skilled workers are particularly prone to shoulder injuries.

Our multidisciplinary team works with you to explore the best solutions for repairing, strengthening and rehabilitating your shoulders.

Our clinic typically cares for:

  • Bursitis 
  • Rotator cuff tears 
  • Tendonitis 
  • Pinched structures
  • Dislocation 
  • Subluxation
  • Torn tendons
  • Frozen shoulder
