Shoulder Treatment in Kenya

Improving lives

The shoulder is the most movable joint in the body. However, it is an unstable joint because of the range of motion allowed. This instability increases the likelihood of joint injury, often leading to a degenerative process in which tissues break down and no longer function well.

Shoulder joint conditions we treat include:

  • Acromioclavicular joint sprain
  • Clavicle fracture
  • Dislocated shoulder
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Proximal humerus fracture
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Shoulder impingement
  • Shoulder separation
  • Shoulder labrum tear (slaptear)

What causes shoulder pain?

Historically, neck and shoulder pain has been an older person’s complaint, but clinics are experiencing a rise in younger patients, particularly those working in offices with similar complaints. One of the major causes is staring at computer screens for more than 8  hours a day. Here are some other causes:

  • Broken collarbone: Falling on your outstretched arm can cause your collarbone to break. This is particularly common when cyclers fall off of their bicycles.

  • Broken shoulder blade: An injury to the blade usually is associated with relatively forceful trauma.

  • Muscle tension or poor posture.

  • Breakdown of the cartilage that protects and cushions the joints (osteoarthritis).

  • Calcium buildup in the tendons.

  • Invasive cancer that has spread to the bones of the shoulder or spine.

  • Heart attacks: Although the problem is the heart, heart attacks can cause shoulder or neck pain, known as “referred” pain.

  • Any shoulder injury (especially a dislocation) that cannot be explained, does not match the explanation, or occurs  repeatedly may be caused by abuse.

  • Infection in the skin (cellulitis), joint (infectious arthritis), bursa (septic bursitis), or bone (osteomyelitis).

Neck rolls: Sit up straight in your chair with your feet flat on the floor. Bring your chin toward your chest and roll the right ear to the right shoulder. To intensify the stretch, place your left hand on top of your right shoulder and place your right hand just above your left ear.

Gently apply pressure with the hand on your head hand and breathe through the stretch. Take approximately 8 to 10 breaths, then switch to the other side.

Desk angels : Sitting straight in your chair with perfect posture, raise your arms straight overhead as though you’re trying to touch the ceiling.Keeping your head and torso stationary, move your arms back and forth.
