The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body, requiring a complex interaction of bones, muscles and ligaments to function. These structures can be damaged by injuries or can gradually deteriorate with wear and tear.

Pain, stiffness or loss of motion, weakness and instability are common shoulder symptoms. Many shoulder problems can be treated with rehabilitation programmes and you may get back to normal activity without surgery. If you do require surgery, it can often be performed using arthroscopic or “keyhole” techniques.
