lynn asked The Guru for the following Physiotherapy Advice:
I have had a rotator cuff problem for about 8 weeks.
I have had physio and message and it did improve a little. The problem is in my right arm. I have also had a mastectomy. Do you think you can help?
I am very keen to start playing tennis again. Can you recommend the best person to help. I live in central London and I am happy to go to any location. I do have BUPA. I also wondered how much a session costs and how many I might need. Many thanks, Lynn

It sounds as if you’ve got an impingement , which is pretty common in the shoulder.
They can happen due to 2 or 3 things. Firstly a spec of bone grow on under your collarbone at the end which rubs on a muscle that helps to move your shoulder, or this muscle can get inflamed due to unusual over activity (a mad weekend painting the ceiling!).
Or, and most likely is that you are moving in such a way that is causing the muscles around the shoulder to overwork and impinge. Posture over a long period of time can influence the way you move your shoulder and use the muscles around it.
I think you need the cause identifying and once this is done, it should be plain sailing.
The 3rd type is pretty unusual and happens is elite(ish) under 25 year olds.
Impingements are bread and butter to us and so anyone, anywhere should be able to help. BUPA fully recognise us [sports injury london clinics], give them a call and we’ll take care of the rest.
Any probs, do shout.
