Complete Co-ordinated Care

There’s no need to bounce between clinics to have your shoulder treated, work with the team that works together. By coming to Axis, you’ll be seen by our team of doctors, physios, clinicians and surgeons, and when you need a scan we can arrange that with our radiology partners (who we are often co-located with). Easy as.

Already seeing your own physio, no problem. We’ll happily work alongside them to get you back to health.

Accurate Diagnosis

You will know exactly what's wrong with your shoulder and how it can be treated.

Rehabilitation Plan

Based on your diagnosis we'll design a treatment programme just for you.

Active Again

We aim to get you back to being active, enjoying life, and not dislocating your shoulder again.

Conditions We Treat

Exercise is beneficial not just for overall health; often, it can be more effective than many of the most commonly prescribed medications. Physical activity has proven evidence to support its effectiveness in conditions such as:

Osteoarthritis

Cardiovascular Disease

Cancer

Type 2 Diabetes

Obesity

Osteoporosis

Neurological Disorders

Pulmonary Disease

Physiotherapy

In many cases, minor tears to the rotator cuff can be accurately assessed and treated by a physiotherapist. Our experienced team can see you promptly (generally within a few days) assess your injury, and set in place a rehabilitation programme to get you back to normal.

In some cases, more serious tears can require a co-ordinated approach to treatment, which is where we can bring in our Sport and Exercise Physicians, Orthopaedic Surgeons and radiology partners.

Orthopaedic Surgery

In some cases, rotator cuff injuries do require surgery, whether that’s a minor procedure or major surgery. Luckily, we have strong relationships with a number of leading surgeons.

Integrated Care

In many cases a rotator cuff injury qualifies for an integrated care pathway (sometimes referred to as Careway), meaning your treatment (including all physiotherapy, surgery, Sport and Exercise Physician consultations and radiology scans) will be completely covered by ACC.

Do I qualify?


All patients must first be diagnosed and assessed before being placed on the integrated pathway. Generally speaking, however, if you have suffered a rotator cuff tear you have a good chance of qualifying.
