Shoulder and Elbow Surgery

The shoulder consists of two bones, the Scapula and the Humerus. Shoulder pain is a common problem and is often a symptom of something else, such as neck damage. Pain can also arise from poor posture, resulting in shoulder blade pain, muscle and tendon damage, hypermobility, a fractured bone or a range of shoulder joint disorders.

Arm and elbow pain usually occur after an injury or fall. Occasionally it can be a sign of an underlying condition. You must see your GP immediately if you suspect you have broken your arm or if pain is brought on by exercise and relieved with rest, as this could be a sign of angina. Common causes of arm and elbow pain are sprains, tennis elbow or golfers elbow (known as epicondylitis), Bursitis, a squashed or trapped nerve or angina.
