Pain in the shoulder and arm is often due to muscle or tendon damage. It can also occur as a result of damage to the peripheral nerves in those areas or from an ongoing health condition such as Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, arthritis, frozen shoulder or repetitive strain injury.
We aim to introduce exercise and treatment to muscles that act over and around the joint. Treatment can involve Soft tissue release, FAR, Manipulation to spinal joints and then exercise to relieve the symptoms and then further remedial exercises and treatment to resolve the problem for the long term.
Our Osteopaths are skilled in distinguishing the root causes of Arm & Shoulder Pain. We specialise in treating Arm & Shoulder Pain. If you are struggling with pain, we can help. Get in touch today.
Thoracic outlet syndrome is a group of disorders that occur when blood vessels or nerves in the space between your collarbone and your first rib (thoracic outlet) are compressed. This can cause pain in your shoulders and neck, numbness or pins and needles in your fingers.
Over time using a computer, or various sports can cause the body to adopt poor postures. Using our specialised T.O.S. assessment & screening we can often pick up problems which may have been completely overlooked in previous examinations. An X-Ray or MRI may show changes if the issue is a structural problem but often these are clear or show only mild wear and tear which is normal with NO disc or Joint problems of any significance.
Functional problems within the muscles (the muscles in front of the throat, ribs and collarbone) overlying the brachial plexus which is the nerve bundle that supplies the upper limbs, is often the problem.

Upper Shoulder Discomfort
For a number of years I suffered discomfort in my upper shoulder area and down my left arm. I had tried a number of different treatments ranging from Chiropractors to Back Pain Relief Clinics – all in vain, the pain continued. Eventually, Robin Lansman was recommended to me and I came to Body Back-Up for treatment. If only I had done this two years earlier! Thank you Body Back-Up.
Thoracic Outlet Syndrome Management
I started coming to see Robin Lansman two and a half years ago. I have come to see him for numerous injuries, one was a shoulder and back injury, one was to do with my neck on the left hand side. Every year he has helped me lots, shown me how to do stretching exercises and where to put the heat pack on my back or on my neck, as needed. I have numerous friends who have had back injuries and have been happy to suggest Robin Lansman, and his service is really good.
Helpful Explanations & Exercises
I have been treated by Robin Lansman for a number of years now, as I have always suffered from back problems.
Robin’s treatment is quick and effective. He is hugely knowledgeable and knows exactly what to do to sort out my mess of a spine or shoulders. He compliments his treatments with explanations and exercises and within 2-3 treatments I am happily back to my normal self again.
Fixed without having to have Cortisone Injection
I had a final treatment with a Physiotherapist about three weeks ago, when she told me she could no longer do anything for me. She also told me to wait for the shoulder to heal or I should consider having a Cortisone injection, which I do not like the idea of.
Eighteen months ago, I had a similar problem with my elbow (same kind of symptoms). My GP told me to wait 6 months and if it did not get better to consider a Cortisone injection. I felt I could not wait as I need to be able to use my arms in order to do my job without feeling constant pain and arm, and did not want to take an injection without trying something a bit more natural.
I therefore went to see Robin Lansman, Osteopath who fixed my problem, in 4 or 5 sessions, if I remember well.
Chronic Back Pain
Highly recommended. I visited Body Back-up after my shoulders/upper back completely seized up. Robin treated my shoulders and underlying chronic back issues, and was thorough, professional and reassuring at all times. He gave me exercises to do between treatments and I am still reaping the benefits.
