Peripheral Joint Problems

Neck pain

Peripheral Joints are joints other than the spine. Examples of these joints are the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, ankle and foot.

These joints can be injured by trauma such as a fall or sporting accident, over-loading and repetition on the joint, or arthritis (wear and tear arthritis called osteo-arthritis or systemic arthritis such as rheumatoid arthritis).

Traumatic injuries to these joints may include dislocations, subluxations, sprains, strains and tears. Overloading injuries may include tendonitis / tendinosus, bursitis and synovitis.

Our physiotherapists have the diagnostic and assessment skills to assess the origin of your joint problem and then plan the correct course of treatment. These may include joint mobilisation techniques to regain lost movement; massage, soft tissue releases and stretching to regain flexibility lost; and strengthening / endurance exercises to prepare the joint properly to cope with the requirements to return to sport. They will give you advice about the likely causes of your problem and how to best prevent it from happening again in the future.
