Shoulder Pain

Experiencing shoulder pain?

Reaching across your body, behind your back or over your head causes shoulder pain.

It hurts at rest and with minimal movement. Any one of five things can be causing that pain. We will help you figure that out and give you exercises and strategies to manage and decrease your symptoms.

The shoulder joint is one of the most mobile joints in the body. Add to this it has to work with the neck and mid-back while you throw a ball, type, reach and lift or sleep. That is why it is one of the most commonly injured areas we treat. Rotator cuff injuries and repairs, labral tears, fractures, separations, dislocations, Adhesive Capsulitis (frozen shoulder) and arthritis are all movement related problems. We will figure out what’s not moving correctly and help you.

To treat your shoulder we need to look further. Poor posture from the neck and mid-back contribute to shoulder pain. We will assess these areas and consider it as part of your shoulder treatment. Some 18 muscles make the shoulder complex work. We will get them moving the right way and teach you how to take care of the problem with exercise and education on the proper use of your shoulder, neck, and mid-back.
