Rotator Cuff Related Shoulder

This can be caused by inflammation and swelling of soft tissue within the shoulder joint. The soft tissue involved includes the tendon of a rotator cuff muscle which passes through the joint space and/or a bursa (a fluid filled sac) which sits within the joint to reduce friction between the tendonand bone.
Frozen Shoulder

Frozen Shoulder

The cause of this condition is not fully understood; however, it can develop if a previous shoulder injury has not been managed well or if the shoulder has been immobile for a long period of time.


This is a condition that causes pain and inflammation within a joint. It can affect any joint in the body but most commonly in the neck, back, hands, hips and knees.

Tennis / Golfers Elbow

These conditions are classed as overuse injuries and are caused by repeating the same movement which uses the forearm muscles over a sustained period of time.
Ankle Sprain

Ankle Sprain

This is a very common injury and most often occurs when your foot rolls inwards putting a stretch on the ligaments on the outside of the ankle. This can happen when you are running and stumble on an uneven ground or are knocked off balance by an opponent in a game situation (football, netball, etc).


These kinds of injuries are generally due to overuse. This occurs when a group of muscles are used repetitively over a sustained period of time placing a stress on a tendon.

Knee Injuries

These injuries most commonly occur in contact sports and are caused when the knee joint is forced into an abnormal movement such as; twisting or being forced in/outwards or backwards.

Fractures (Broken Bones)

Fractures normally occur during impact sports, from a heavy fall or accident. Some fractures will cause pain, swelling and bruising but do not look significantly abnormal whereas more severe fractures displace the bone and you can see part of the bone pushing through the skin or even piercing it.
