At Will Adams NHS Treatment Centre we offer free NHS treatments to all patients. You are not required to pay if you are an NHS patient and have been referred for treatment by your GP.
If a patient is experiencing pain in a shoulder joint, a needle may be inserted into the joint to remove any fluid build up, and/or to diagnose the problem. This is a quick procedure.
This is performed under general anaesthetic and has been used for many years to treat frozen shoulder. The shoulder is moved through a range of motion to separate adhesions. Anti-inflammatory medication may also be injected into the shoulder.
A condition that causes pain around the outside of the elbow, usually caused by overuse of the muscles attached to your elbow and used to straighten your wrist.
An injection made into the shoulder or elbow joints to ease pain and reduce inflammation caused by any number of conditions. The effects of the injection may last some weeks.
The ulnar nerve goes around the back of the inner side of your elbow and through a tight tunnel between the forearm muscles. Pressure or compression on the nerve can result in numbness in the ring and little fingers, which minor surgery can release.
Please be aware that we are not affected by the NHS announcement to cancel all non-urgent surgery; if you are booked in for an appointment or surgery with us it will still go ahead.
