Auckland Shoulder Clinic has recently purchased the Shoulder Pacemaker, the latest ‘cutting edge’ treatment for people with posterior shoulder instability. Shoulders can be unstable in primarily three different ways (anterior, posterior, and multi-directional). This new pacemaker is designed primarily for people with posterior shoulder instability (instability in the back of the shoulder).

How does the shoulder pacemaker work?

Recent research has emerged regarding a new treatment for people with posterior shoulder instability.  This research is primarily for people who have posterior shoulder instability. The Shoulder PaceMaker is innovative in that it stimulates the muscles in the shoulder blade and the back of your shoulder while you move. The intensity is decided by the patient and then they perform a series of exercises. the Pacemaker machine stimulates the muscle while you move, ensuring that the shoulder stays in the socket during movement and that there is no pain during movement.
