The shoulder, a complex joint
The shoulder complex consists of up to 5 different joints and sliding surfaces. The origin of shoulder injuries can therefore be in many different causes. The osteopath examines in detail where these problems come from.
Mobility and instability
The shoulder is in a constant balance between mobility and stability. When mobility is increased, the muscles must work harder to ensure stability. From a disturbance of this balance many different symptoms may occur. For example a frozen schoulder, tendonitis, and shoulder instability. Also a mechanical impact or a fall/bump can give unexplained pain for years.
