Solihull Hospital 3With three in ten adults in the United Kingdom likely to have a shoulder disorder, locals are invited to attend a free health seminar at Solihull Hospital to hear about common causes of shoulder pain.

Taking place on Wednesday 15 February from 5pm, Mr Ved Goswami, consultant orthopaedic surgeon, will touch on common issues such as: rotator cuff disease, frozen shoulders and shoulder instability. Mr Goswami will also discuss ways of treating shoulder pain and offer locals the chance to ask any questions.

Mr Goswami said: “There are many types of treatment for shoulder pain, depending on the cause of your shoulder pain and symptoms. Heat or ice packs, painkillers, physiotherapy, steroid injections may help to reduce the pain whilst some may require surgical procedures.

“Not many people have a clear understanding of shoulder disorders and I hope that by hosting the seminar, locals will be encouraged to come along to learn about causes of shoulder pain and common treatments.”

If you would like to attend the seminar, please contact Sandra White, membership and community engagement manager, on 0121 424 1218 or email: membership@heartofengland.nhs.uk.
