Shoulder Conditions & Treatment

Professor Saithna sees and treats all shoulder conditions ranging from sports injuries in high performance athletes to elderly patients with arthritic joints who want to be able to enjoy pain free joint movement.

The following links provide information about common shoulder conditions and are intended to provide a background of information to help you understand your condition and treatment as clearly as possible. These links provide general information only and may not specifically apply to your care. It is therefore important to write down any questions you have and bring them with you to your appointment. In the meantime you can also get more information on rotator cuff tears, frozen shoulder, and  treatment options in the "Give pain the cold shoulder" article featured in the "Ask the Doctor with Dr Christian Jessen" Magazine.
