Shoulder Pain and Dysfunction
The shoulder is a complex joint anchored by many tendons, muscles and ligaments.
Due to its instability and complexity, the shoulder is prone to pain and injury.
It's important to identify the true cause of your shoulder pain before it can be treated effectively. Often it's the poor mechanics of the upper back and shoulder blades or other joints that cause sensations of pain in the shoulder.
Millions of patients suffering from shoulder pain can benefit greatly from a thorough inventory of upper body mechanics.
It's important to ensure that adjoining muscles are being properly recruited to reduce the stress on the shoulder joint. Shoulder injuries can be alleviated if muscles are functioning properly in concert with ligaments, tendons and other joints.
Active Release Technique (ART) treatments can be very effective for treating the overused shoulder muscles. After prolonged dysfunctional use of these muscles, ART can quickly and permanently resolve resulting shoulder pain issues.
