Angie – shoulder and arm inhibition

Angie visited the Rehab Hub in July this year, having lost almost all function and strength in her left arm. There was no obvious reason for the loss of movement, and understandably it was causing her a great deal of concern. Prior to coming into clinic, Angie had several hospital appointments for X-rays, blood tests, an ECG and a CT scan, none of which could explain the issue.

Luke Denham, Sports Therapist, took a full case history and carried out his comprehensive assessment which involved movement, strength, special and neurological testing. The results indicated that Angie was suffering an injury to soft tissue affecting a nerve. Luke also sought a second opinion from our Osteopath, Ollie, who agreed with his findings. Angie and Luke discussed her treatment options and a suitable rehabilitation pathway, and she went home feeling reassured with some initial care advice and simple exercises.

After just a few weeks and six appointments Angie has now regained full range of movement and is working hard on restoring her strength. She has also had the results of further hospital tests confirming that the loss of function stemmed from muscular compression along the neural pathway, confirming Luke’s findings.

Keep up the great work Angie!
