SHOULDER PAIN

Shoulder pain may originate in the joint itself or from any of the surrounding joints, muscles, ligaments or tendons. Shoulder pain may worsen with activities and/or may be painful during rest.  While some shoulder pain will resolve with time, a lot of the cases worsen with time leading to unnecessary surgery and a long painful rehabilitation.

There are 17 muscles that attach to the shoulder and several factors affect how it moves.  Given the complexity of the joint, a full dynamic evaluation of your back, neck, and shoulder should be performed. Exercises alone will not always help your shoulder issues.  The evaluation will dictate what you need, whether it be joint mobilization, muscle relaxation, muscle strengthening, muscle re-education and/or postural education. Don’t delay and make matters worse; allow us to serve you and help you return to your normal pain free life before it turns into a bigger problem.
