The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the human body. Because of this, it is used for a variety of activities, from throwing to swimming and bench pressing to the clean and jerk. All of these activities lead to forces stressing the shoulder repetitively, potentially leading to pain and stiffness. Improvement comes from decreasing pain, increasing mobility and improving the shoulders tolerance to the workload you are expecting of it.
There are specific patterns that shoulder pain follows, and when we learn your story and screen your shoulder we might find that your neck is contributing to your pain. 76% of shoulder pain cases the neck is involved in some way. The neck and shoulder work hand-in-hand, so when one is dysfunctional, the other tends to follow suit. With our in-depth screens we help identify issues that could have been missed in prior care.
