Normal shoulder function is essential for many daily activities and sports. Shoulder dysfunction can cause significant impairment of everyday quality of life.

“Due to a serious Repetitive Strain Injury in my shoulder/neck I have been attending Portobello Physiotherapy on and off over the last several years, during which, the treatment I have received has always been of the highest standard. The staff are both friendly and welcoming and have always answered any questions I’ve asked about my injury. Exercise programmes were set out for me, explained in detail and, in my case, altered to suit how my shoulder/neck react to them. As long as I put the time in to doing the exercises and follow the advice of the Therapists I always see results within a short space of time. I would highly recommend Portobello Physiotherapy to anyone, as the care and attention I have received on my visits has always been second to none.”
