Arm and shoulder pain specialists

Our Osteopaths are skilled in distinguishing the root causes of arm and shoulder pain. If you are struggling with pain, we can help.

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS)

Thoracic outlet syndrome is a disorder that occur when blood vessels or nerves in the space between your collarbone and your first 2 ribs (thoracic outlet) are compressed or stretched. This can cause pain in your shoulder and neck and  numbness or pins and needles in your fingers.

Over time, regularly using a computer or playing sports can cause this problem. Using our specialised assessment and screening we can often pick up problems which may have been completely overlooked in previous examinations.
