Shoulder Trauma in Norwich, Norfolk

During Lock down lot’s of events were held online rather than physically and I felt it was better to use the time wisely and continue studying, I believe we all need to keep on moving forward and gaining knowledge to help our patients and keep up to date with what is happening.

To that end  I have been in the happy position as a member, to be able to attend quite a few of The Royal Society of Medicine’s on line events, these give me invaluable access to learn from the best, to listen to some great speakers on some brilliant topics.

Under normal circumstances it would be a trip into London  and a stay overnight , but this way it has meant I can enjoy the event, get  to ask questions and have plenty of time to study the subject, a win, win situation.

 

 

The  event was on Shoulder TraumaThe Shoulder is where the humours (upper arm bone) meets the scapula (shoulder blade) It is a shallow joint to allow more flexibility of movement, but it also means it can be more prone to injury and dislocation along with nerve entrapment . This is a joint injury that can be ,especially, devastating and totally debilitating, it can easily cause distribution to other structural and biological functions around it .

This is a  joint injury that can be ,especially, devastating and totally debilitating, it can easily cause distribution to other structural and biological functions around it .

This is a  major area that  I have  found deeply interesting,  the discussions revolved around  non operative reconstruction ,the need to give a good prospective evaluation of the  trauma pathology  .

Examining how Neurovascular Injuries and Muscle Paralysis, can be treated with constructive intervention  to aid the quality of life for the patient .

These are two of the major areas, that are of interest to me.

Neurovascular Injuries

Neurovascular Injuries are damage to major blood vessels in the body with  further complications, with the injury being the  loss of sensation, tingling or pins and needles,  being apparent to the patient .

Muscle Paralysis 

Muscle Paralysis in simple terms means a loss of control and strength ability ,this  causes the nerve communication ability from the Spinal Column to be  compromised , there are four types of paralysis.

 

The Shoulder joint holds four major nerves ,  the origin of all these nerves originate from the Cervical Vertebrae C5-C7 .they are the:Neurovascular Injuries  Neurovascular Injuries are damage to major blood vessels in the body with further complications, with the injury being the loss of sensation, tingling or pins and needles, being apparent to the patient .

Axillary nerve ,

Long Thoracic Nerve ,

Suprascapular nerve 

Musculocutaneous nerve .

Motor Neurons and Neuropeptides  carry nerve messages to help innervate muscles to work correctly, any injury or trauma will impair this function .

Treating patients with Bioneuro Sigma Q technology , can help restore function, the technology works  with a variable pulse through the muscles, fascia, thus enabling it  to interact with the nerve pathways, and neuromuscular junctions. .

I have found that the Bioneuro Sigma Q combined with  ,Neuromuscular Manipulation techniques,  Correct Rehabilitation and Recovery  Exercises, when appropriate, to help the patient to  achieved  Full  Pain Free movement,  can work quicker than other interventions, that I have used in the past and I have tried various interventions,  along with massage over the past 30 years of my being a Therapist.

My goal for my patients is for me  to be able,  to reduce their need for pain killer medication to zero, to restore good health and quality of life  back to my patients, to help them Be The Best They Can Be and I will continue to do so.

    I would just like to say a massive thank you to Steve. I contacted him on the same day I ended up going to A&E with the tremendous pain of a Frozen Shoulder. I couldn’t lift my arm more than a couple of inches from my body. My shoulder had actually been building up to this point over a couple of years.. something I was “just getting by with” and never getting around to having it looked at. Steve very quickly prioritised me the same day as he knew how much pain I was in. He immediately started my treatment with the Bioneuro Sigma Q technology. His empathy and professional understanding to my situation made me feel confident in my recovery. Just 3 sessions later, spaced just over 1 week, gave me back full movement of my shoulder. In total I had 4 sessions and my shoulder feels pain free. It’s now down to me to improve the strength in my shoulder through regular exercise, of which Steve has given me advice on. I can’t recommend this treatment enough for my Frozen Shoulder.
