Injuries - Shoulder Pain
A healthy shoulder joint is the most versatile joint in the body, owing to its tremendous range of motion (ROM). The price of that greater ROM, though, is a higher likelihood of injury. The shoulder joint is vulnerable to a host of injuries and chronic pain patterns that can profoundly impact your ability to perform normal activities of daily living. Every year, over 6 million people consult medical experts for shoulder problems. Early detection and treatment of a shoulder imbalance is extremely important to avoid more invasive corrective procedures.
Our daily life activities and the entailed postural implications predispose us to shoulder injury and dysfunction. Sitting at the computer, driving, cooking, writing, working on projects that require sustained muscular contraction of the muscles on the front of our shoulders, produce a corresponding weakness in the posterior muscles of the shoulder; principally the rotator cuff muscles (infraspinatus, supraspinatus, teres minor and subscapularis). Over time, weakness in the rotator cuff, and the other muscular structures of the back predispose us to painful injuries of the shoulder.
Many sporting activities, like golfing, swimming, and racquet sports, involve an overhead/forward motion executed with force and momentum, which further irritates or overtly tears these weakened posterior soft-tissues. Rotator cuff tears, supraspinatis and bicepital impingements, sub-acromial spurring, and acromio-clavicular dysfunctions result.
If these dysfunctions are caught early enough, the muscular imbalances which cause them can be corrected with appropriately applied Neuromuscular Therapy techniques, corrections to daily postures/corrections to stroke techniques, and a corrective home program of stretching and strengthening.
