Rotator Cuff Injuries

The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint, keeping the head of your upper arm bone firmly within the shallow socket of the shoulder. A rotator cuff injury can cause a dull ache in the shoulder, which often worsens with use of the arm away from the body.

 Ankle Injuries

Your ankle is an intricate network of bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles. Strong enough to bear your body weight and enable you to move, your ankle can be prone to injury and pain.

You might feel the pain on the inside or outside of your ankle or along the Achilles tendon, which connects the muscles in your lower leg to your heel bone. Although mild ankle pain often responds well to home treatments, it can take time to resolve. But that's where our team comes in.

Knee Injuries

Your knee is the largest joint in your body. The bones of your knee are separated by two strong rubbery discs of cartilage called meniscus. Your thigh bone (femur), and shin bones (tibia and fibula) are joined by ligaments, tendons, and muscles.

Your bones are covered by articular cartilage, that absorbs shock and provides a smooth, gliding surface for joint movement.

Sudden knee injury often happens after a fast twisting action. Pain in your knee can be very mild or very severe, depending on how your injury happened. Pain and swelling are the most common signs of knee injury. It might feel like your knee is catching or locking up. You might feel unstable, like your knee is giving way.
