Why do I need a diagnostic shoulder Ultrasound Scan?
Shoulder pain is a common problem and often difficult to diagnosis the source of the pain through the traditional clinical assessment alone. This is due to the complexity of the shoulder anatomy and the possibility of referred pain from elsewhere. A correct diagnosis helps to formulate an appropriate treatment plan to optimize the recovery. For effective shoulder pain treatment Leicester contact Joint Care Clinics today.

Arthritis can cause shoulder stiffness, pain, and loss of function. Traumatic rotator cuff tears following a fall or while lifting a heavy object is also possible.
