Shoulder pain clinic
In this clinic we assess shoulder pain using ultrasound imaging during movement. The imaging alows us to see the muscle fibres contracting real time and develop bespoke exercise for the shoulder to heal and recover from injury. This is especially useful for post Stroke shoulder pain.
Because sometimes exercising on a treatment couch, a Gymball or mat is not enough, Morrello Clinic has access to a wide range of highly specialist equipment and our staff are all experienced in setup and support of FES and Saebo rehabilitation systems.
Functional Electrical Stimulation FES is a treatment technique where small electricall pulses are applied to the skin from a handheld device. These pulses are used to help activate muscles which are paralysed. FES and Saebo are used to compliment our hands on treatments and the exercise programmes we setup at home.
FES devices available
Dropfoot FES Stimulator from Bioness
Ness L300, can be tried in the clinic and is available to take home or hire. We can also supply and setup any Bioness equipment if a client wants to purchase.
Thigh stimulator from Bioness
Ness L300 Plus, is designed to help with control of the knee during walking and standing.
Hand stimulator from Bioness
Ness H200, is designed to help with hand function if no activity or limited activity in the hand is present. It is normally setup as an exercise stimulator but can also be an active functional device providing grasp and release.
