Shoulder physiotherapy with long-term results
One of the most complex joints in the body, the shoulder is powerful, highly mobile, and a crucial asset to sports people. Unfortunately, it’s easily disrupted, which can lead to muscle imbalance and overload injuries. Shoulder problems are most common in racket sports, or sports that load the shoulder, like cycling or weight lifting. As anybody who has suffered a frozen shoulder or an impinged rotator cuff will know, a pain in the shoulder can be really debilitating! Identifying why the shoulder has become overloaded is important, because shoulders frequently compensate for problems elsewhere in the body - people with a shoulder injury often have a weakness in the opposite hip; and posture is important too. Full body analysis is vital, as you’re unlikely to fully recover if you treat the shoulder in isolation.
Lauren Taylor has been a qualified physiotherapist for 10 years, building up years of international experience by working in top clinics in Canada, New Zealand, Australia and the UK. As a keen tennis player herself, Lauren is extremely familiar with the difficulties in rehabilitating a shoulder injury, and in fact shoulders are one of her favourite joints to treat. The causes of overload are diverse, and no two shoulders are ever the same! Lauren is also a keen Pilates teacher (learned in Canada and Australia) – which helps, as a strong core is a vital foundation for optimal shoulder function. So if you've got a dodgy shoulder, then why not give us a call on 0207 175 0150 and book an assessment with Lauren?

What I do
Everything in your body is connected.
An injury in one place can lead to compensation and further injury in another. So when you feel pain, you need to know where the trouble stems from. At Victory, which is just two minutes from Liverpool Street and Moorgate, I find, analyse and tackle the cause of your pain, rather than just looking at the symptoms. Once I've located the problem, I can help you get better and better. No temporary fixes - I only deal in long-term solutions.
