Shoulder Pain Clinic: London

If you’re dealing with shoulder pain, you’ll almost certainly have a new understanding of just how much we use this complicated joint. A shoulder injury can make it virtually impossible to carry out simple tasks – from stirring a cup of coffee to getting comfortable in bed, shoulder pain can seriously impact your life.

The good news is, we can quickly and effectively deliver treatment for shoulder pain. Our multi-disciplinary team includes physios, osteopaths, chiropractors, pilates instructors, strength and condition coaches, and sports massage therapists. Whatever you need to get back to pre-injury levels of comfort, we’ll make it happen.

Contact the team here at Fitness Lab today. We’ll talk to you in detail about your injury, then explain exactly what we can do to help. Our initial consultation is free and we’ll give you a detailed breakdown of what the problem is.


Your shoulder joint is one of the most complex parts of your body

The shoulder is unlike any other joint in your body. A number of ligaments and tendons attach each section of the shoulder to the spine – and the way we use our bodies generally means the incredible mobility this offers is more of a priority than strength or stability. As a result, naturally weaker and underworked shoulder muscles mean injuries and strains are common.

Since the upper arm bone and shoulder area is so complex, pain can be difficult to pinpoint. What’s more, the kind of complex stretches and movements needed for rehabilitation can be very difficult to get right without expert guidance.

This is where Fitness Lab comes in. Our shoulder rehabilitation and strengthening knowledge is world-class – and our state-of-the-art body composition equipment lets us understand where balance issues and bias in your posture occurs – so we can work to relieve your pain now, and deal with the underlying cause – to prevent it coming back in the future.

Treatment for frozen shoulder, rotator cuff tears, and more

Some of the most commonly encountered shoulder problems here at Fitness Lab include:

  • Rotator cuff tear
  • Rotator cuff tendon strains
  • Shoulder dislocation issues
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Bursitis
  • Shoulder blade fracture/separation problems (often in the AC joint)
  • Cartilage tears

Sometimes, these issues cause problems elsewhere in the body as you unconsciously compensate for pain or a lack of mobility. It’s not uncommon for shoulder issues to lead to other types of sports injury – like tennis elbow, back pain, neck pain, or even issues in the hips and pelvis.

Whatever pain or mobility issues you’re experiencing, when you visit our Soho or Fitzrovia shoulder pain clinics, you can be confident you’ll get a rapid diagnosis and a range of effective treatment options to get you back to full strength quickly.

Which kind of shoulder pain treatment will be right for you?

Without specialist knowledge and experience, occupational injuries and sports injuries in the shoulder can be very difficult to diagnose. When you come to Fitness Lab, we don’t expect you to have a particular kind of shoulder treatment in mind – instead, we’ll talk to you about your injury, complete a full assessment, and plan a a course of action together.

Sometimes, dedicated sports massage therapy, stretching, ice-packs, and some strengthening work will be enough to ease your pain. In other cases, we’ll look at specialist physiotherapy or osteopathic treatment sessions – each designed to increase your range of motion and address muscle weakness over time.

Of course, we also know our limits. If your shoulder requires medical attention or a surgical procedure, we’ll be able to identify this and talk you through what your next steps should be. Shoulder surgery is rarely required – but if you do need more specialist medical help, we’ll provide you with all our notes and diagnostic information to give your doctor or specialist a head start.

With over 15 years experience providing rehabilitation and personal training, the team here at Fitness Lab have a virtually unmatched level of shoulder pain and shoulder injury knowledge.

And of course, these professionals complement our experienced team of personal trainers, strength and conditioning coaches and pilates instructors – providing the kind of support you’ll need to avoid injuries going forward.

I've been training with Olivia at Soho Fitness Lab since the beginning of December and the experience has been brilliant. As a newbie to working with a P/T I was nervous going into it, but from the first session I saw I had nothing to worry about. The space is unlike your usual gyms - it’s private and just the right size, and has a smart feel to it. It's a perfect spot for pre-work workouts if you are in or around Soho, or live there like I do. Never thought I'd be happy getting up at 6am to go to the gym but always look forward to it as I see the progress I am making!

I’ve recently started training with James after a bit of a hiatus with my fitness. He really gets where I’m coming from, as I’m working around old injuries. The sessions are a lot of fun and I feel great afterwards. He really know what he’s doing and I’m excited to be back on the right path.

I've found the team at Fitness Lab to be very professional, knowledgeable and flexible based on my capabilities and fitness goals. My PT, Rhys has been a great help in tailoring sessions and even adapting them whilst I had some sporting injuries. He has also taken the time outside of sessions to send tips on diet, demo videos of exercises to do at home and just generally communicate with me outside of the hourly sessions to keep me motivated, which is not something you normally get from past experiences elsewhere. I would highly recommend Fitness lab if you're serious about improving your fitness and/or have hit a brick wall with your 'run of the mill' PTs out there. It's well worth it in my opinion.
