Shoulder Trauma in Norwich Norfolk

Shoulder Trauma Symposium

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.

Shoulder Trauma Symposium

The  event was on Shoulder Trauma

The Shoulder is where the humerus (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  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:

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.

Frozen Shoulder or Shoulder Injury, Help In Norwich Norfolk

Previous shoulder issues treated only with rest and medication will not properly rehabilitate and are prone to re-injury until properly conditioned by corrective exercise, therapy treatment, Sports Massage and Neuromuscular Therapy and manipulation . Exercises alone will not gain full pain free restoration and quality of life.

Any Muscular injury can be debilitating, but Frozen Shoulder or Rotator Cuff Injury,can last a long time and make life very difficult.

The human shoulder is made up of three bones the Clavicle,Scapular and the Humerus as well as associated muscles, ligaments and tendons which are all vital for its function.

Major Muscles in this area are the Rotator Cuff Group, The Deltoids. Other associated muscles are the Trapezius and Latissimus Dorsi.

The vital point also to remember with any shoulder  injury is that nerve damage always needs  consideration and assessment. Neck injuries can often be the source of shoulder pathologies as well .

Long Term Shoulder Injury

So why do major problems occur.

People lack coordination, in the joints of the shoulder, neck and upper back region as a result of poor posture and repetitive motions.

The enhancement  of the nerve supply to the area though aids good function of the shoulder for pain free movement.

The fascia in the region is often shortened when there is a injury ,This results in a continual friction and abrasion to the Rotator Cuff muscles and Tendons.

Previous shoulder issues treated only with rest and medication will not properly rehabilitate and are prone to re-injury until properly conditioned by corrective exercise, therapy treatment.

Sports Injury Therapy Massage and Neuromuscular Techniques and manipulation is necessary.

Exercises alone will not gain full pain free restoration and quality of life.
