I recently started working with Magenta and I couldn't be happier with my progress so far. Magenta is incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and caring. She took the time to thoroughly assess my condition and tailored her treatment plan to my specific needs (lower back pain). Her positive attitude and encouragement made the sessions enjoyable, even when the exercises were challenging. Thanks to Magenta, I have seen a significant improvement in my mobility and overall well-being. I highly recommend Magenta to anyone in need of physiotherapy services.

I have been very impressed with the therapy I’ve received by Magenta. She has helped with many of my pregnancy issues including lower back, neck and hip pain. She has a wealth of knowledge and is constantly up-skilling herself to ensure she has the most up to date practises. For me, she has used a combination of massage and giving me exercises to do at home. Not only that, but she has a wonderful disposition and is always happy to chat and see how I’m getting on. She has been there throughout my second and third trimester and I couldn’t be more grateful!
Thank god for Kurt and Kanvi. Without them I’d be in big trouble! Huge help with bad hip, back and neck pains. Highly recommended!

Highly recommend Magenta/Danielle! Incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and all-around lovely people. They gave me very helpful advice/support for strength and flexibility training, including deep tissue massages and acupuncture during the sessions. Without them, I would not have been able to recover from my IT band injury before my ultramarathon this summer.

I had a very positive experience working with Magenta on my rehabilitation following a tri-malleolar ankle fracture and surgery. It was a long and tricky recovery journey, but Magenta's professionalism, advice and positive attitude were extremely helpful in dealing with the whole thing. Thank you, Magenta and One Body LDN 🙂

I was on a week's business trip to London and had severe recurrence of slip disc induced sciatic pain in my left leg. In order to prep for the long return trip back to India the next day, I went for 1 session to One body LDN. Mridul, the physio, did a great job in understanding my problem, the pain areas and providing a deep tissue massage that helped me manage my pain during the return flight. Thanks Mridul and One body LDN!

Appendix key terms for shoulder impingement

Shoulder pain: Shoulder impingement syndrome is a common cause of shoulder pain, accounting for 44% to 65% of all shoulder pain complaints. The rotator cuff tendon passes through a space below the acromion, which can become narrowed due to repetitive overhead motions or injury, resulting in the tendon rubbing or catching on nearby tissue and bone. The condition affects the rubbery tissue that connects the muscles around the shoulder joint to the top of the arm, leading to discomfort and limited movement. It is important to seek medical attention if you experience persistent shoulder pain to avoid worsening symptoms and potential long-term damage.

Rotator cuff tear: Shoulder impingement can be caused by a variety of factors including rotator cuff tear. A small tear or hole in the rotator cuff can cause significant weakness and make it difficult to raise your arm against gravity. Treatment options may include physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medication, and in some cases, surgery. Proper rehabilitation is crucial after surgery, and a sling may be used for a short period of time to aid in the healing process. Understanding the underlying causes of shoulder impingement and seeking prompt medical treatment can help prevent long-term complications.

Subacromial decompression: Shoulder impingement occurs when the tendons in the shoulder become compressed and cause pain. One surgical solution for this is subacromial decompression or arthroscopic shoulder decompression, which involves removing part of the acromion to create more space for the rotator cuff. This procedure can be done through small incisions in your shoulder, making it minimally invasive. Recovery time after surgery can range from six weeks to three months, depending on the extent of the procedure. While subacromial decompression surgery is successful in 8 out of 10 people, there is a chance that some individuals may continue to experience shoulder pain even after the surgery.

Inflammation: Shoulder impingement is a condition that occurs when the tendons of the rotator cuff muscles become inflamed and irritated as they pass through the subacromial space. Inflammation in the bursa can also be seen in imaging tests like MRI and ultrasound. The goal of treatment is to reduce pain and restore function. An injection of anesthetic under the acromion can help diagnose impingement syndrome if it relieves pain. Recovery involves rotator cuff and shoulder rehabilitation exercises to improve range of motion and strengthen the affected muscles.

Soft tissue: Shoulder impingement is a common condition that occurs when the soft tissue surrounding the shoulder joint becomes inflamed or irritated. This can be caused by overuse of the shoulder, anatomical factors, or changes to the shoulder tendons due to outside forces. Treatment options vary but may include removing bone and soft tissue through surgery, physical therapy, or corticosteroid injections. Imaging techniques like ultrasonography and MRI can also be used to detect soft tissue damage and assess the severity of the condition.

Arthritis: Shoulder impingement can be caused by various factors, including arthritis. Arthritis in the shoulder joint can cause inflammation and swelling, which can lead to impingement. X-rays are helpful to rule out arthritis and may show rotator cuff injuries or changes in the normal outline of the bone where the rotator cuff normally attaches. Your doctor will check for other problems with your shoulder joint and may examine your neck to make sure that the pain is not coming from a pinched nerve or other conditions such as arthritis.

Subacromial impingement syndrome is a common cause of shoulder pain that occurs when the tendons of the rotator cuff become inflamed and irritated as they pass through the subacromial space. It is also known as subacromial pain syndrome or rotator cuff related disorders. The diagnosis and treatment of this condition have been a topic of debate among medical professionals, with some questioning its validity as a distinct medical disorder. However, for those who suffer from it, subacromial impingement syndrome can cause significant discomfort and limited mobility in the shoulder joint.

Acromioclavicular joint: Shoulder impingement occurs when the structures around the shoulder joint become compressed or irritated. One of the common causes of this condition is bony projections from the acromion, such as subacromial spurs, and osteoarthritic spurs on the acromioclavicular joint. The coracoacromial ligament, which is located anterior to the acromioclavicular joint, can also thicken or calcify and contribute to impingement. The subacromial space houses important structures like rotator cuff tendons, long head of biceps tendon, and coraco-acromial ligament, all surrounded by the subacromial bursa which helps to reduce friction between these structures.

Pathology: Shoulder impingement is a common pathology that affects the rotator cuff tendons. It refers to the inflammation and irritation of the tendons as they pass through the subacromial space, which causes pain, weakness, and reduced range of motion in the shoulder. The condition encompasses various types of pathology including rotator cuff tendinosis, subacromial bursitis, and calcific tendinitis. There are several factors that can contribute to shoulder impingement, including abnormal scapular function or scapular dyskinesis. Proper diagnosis and treatment are essential for managing this condition effectively.

Ibuprofen: Shoulder impingement is a common condition that can cause pain and discomfort in the shoulder. Over-the-counter pain medications such as ibuprofen or naproxen can be taken to relieve the pain, but it’s better to consult with a healthcare provider before starting any medication. For more severe pain, a stronger prescription strength anti-inflammatory medication may be prescribed or a cortisone injection into the bursa beneath the acromion may be given. Physical therapy can also help restore normal motion to the shoulder. Simple painkillers like paracetamol or ibuprofen may help reduce the pain and discomfort allowing for easier movement of the arm.

Rozen shoulder: Shoulder impingement is a condition that causes pain and discomfort in the shoulder area. Symptoms include pain on the top and outer side of your shoulder, weakness in your arm, and pain or aching at night. It’s important to note that if your shoulder is stiff, you might have a frozen shoulder instead of impingement. Frozen shoulder is another condition that affects the shoulder joint causing stiffness and limited range of motion. A thorough physical examination should be conducted to differentiate between these two conditions and exclude other potential causes of shoulder pain.

Humeral head: Shoulder impingement is a common condition that occurs when the tendons of the rotator cuff muscles become compressed and irritated as they pass through the subacromial space, which lies below the coracoacromial arch and above the humeral head. This can cause pain, weakness, and restricted movement in the affected shoulder. The humeral head is often affected during this syndrome when it pushes against the acromion causing pressure downwards on the nerve. Treatment for shoulder impingement may include rest, physical therapy, medication, and in severe cases, surgery.

Coracoid process: Shoulder impingement occurs when the tendons of the rotator cuff muscles become compressed or pinched within the subacromial space. This space is outlined by the acromion, coracoid process and coracoacromial ligament which connects them. Within this space run the rotator cuff tendons, long head of biceps tendon and coraco-acromial ligament. The extrinsic muscles, including biceps, triceps, and deltoid muscles attach to the coracoid process and supraglenoid tubercle of the scapula, infraglenoid tubercle of the scapula, and spine of the scapula. These muscles are responsible for several actions of the glenohumeral joint.

Anatomy: Shoulder impingement is a common condition that occurs when the tendons of the rotator cuff muscles become compressed or pinched between the upper arm bone (humerus) and the shoulder blade (scapula). Understanding the anatomy of the shoulder joint is important in understanding this condition. The shoulder joint is made up of three bones – humerus, scapula, and clavicle – and is stabilized by several muscles, including the rotator cuff muscles. Any weakness or imbalance in these muscles can lead to shoulder impingement syndrome.

Shoulder joint: Shoulder impingement syndrome is a common injury that causes pain and discomfort in the shoulder joint. The management of shoulder impingement syndrome involves a combination of conservative treatments such as rest, ice, physical therapy, and anti-inflammatory medications. In some cases, surgical intervention may be necessary to relieve symptoms and improve function. Patients can also take steps to prevent future injuries by maintaining proper posture, strengthening the muscles surrounding the shoulder joint, and avoiding activities that cause strain on the shoulder. With proper management, most patients can recover from shoulder impingement syndrome and return to their normal activities without pain or limitation.

Lifting: Shoulder impingement is a common condition that can cause pain and discomfort when lifting objects or reaching overhead. This condition is often seen in athletes who use their arms for repetitive overhead activities such as swimming, baseball, and tennis. It can also develop as a result of minor injuries or activities that involve repetitive lifting or overhead movements, such as construction or painting. Symptoms may include pain when lifting your arm, lowering your arm from a raised position, or reaching. Weakness or pain in the arm when lifting or reaching may also be present.

Subacromial impingement is a common condition that affects the shoulder joint. It occurs when the tendons and bursa in the subacromial space become compressed or irritated, leading to pain and limited range of motion. This condition can be caused by a variety of factors, including repetitive overhead movements, poor posture, muscle imbalances, and structural abnormalities. To diagnose subacromial impingement, a healthcare professional will typically perform a physical examination and may order imaging tests such as X-rays or MRI scans. Treatment options for subacromial impingement include rest, physical therapy, pain medication, corticosteroid injections, and in some cases, surgery. With proper treatment and rehabilitation, most individuals with subacromial impingement can find relief from their symptoms and regain full function of their shoulder joint.

Shoulder impingement is a condition where the tendons of the rotator cuff muscles become irritated and inflamed as they pass through a narrow space in the shoulder joint. It is often caused by repetitive overhead activities, poor posture, muscle imbalances, or trauma to the shoulder.
