Easy as.

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 dislocated shoulders can be accurately diagnosed and treated by a physio. Our experienced team can see you promptly (Generally within a few days) diagnose your injury, and set in place a rehabilitation programme to get you back to injury free.


In some cases, dislocated shoulders can require a co-ordinated approach to treatment, which is where we can bring in our sport and exercise physicians, surgeons and radiology partners.

Orthopaedic Surgery

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

Do you suffer from recurring shoulder issues?

Are you experiencing recurrent or partial dislocations in your shoulder? This is a common issue that can be quite frustrating and may cause you to lose confidence in your shoulder. In some cases, it can even force people to give up their favourite sport. If you have been managing the condition by popping your shoulder back in place and taking painkillers, we have good news for you.

Our effective treatment can reduce the likelihood of future dislocations. Doesn’t that sound great?

Integrated Care

In many cases, a dislocated shoulder 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 dislocated shoulder, you have a good chance of qualifying.
