If there's one way to almost guarantee a shoulder or elbow injury, it's to play professional rugby, cricket, tennis, or golf. Having said that, sports players (both amateur and professional) represent only a small part of the number of people who use the specialist facilities here at Three Shires Hospital on a daily basis.
Our patients also include people who are here to correct every day accidental injuries to their upper body, or who are experiencing pain through natural wear and tear on those parts especially shoulders and elbows.
Three Shires is able to offer patient centered treatment led by specialist consultants at its shoulder and elbow clinic. You can find Three Shires Hospital within the grounds of St. Andrews Hospital close to Northampton General Hospital.
With 14 consulting rooms and 49 private rooms, each with their own full en-suite facilities, Three Shires is not only well located for the many sports people and clubs who rely on it, but also for the local population who need fast access to medical help, private operations, advice, or other professional care including physiotherapy and other treatments whether surgery is required or not.
