Some common shoulder pain issues we treat here at Mountain Movement Center are:
– Frozen Shoulder
– Aching shoulder with certain positions.
– Sharp pain when lifting the arm.
– Shoulder Tendinitis
– Loss of Range of Motion effecting a sport
– Shoulder impingement.
Just as with every case at our Center we take a Holistic look at why you have shoulder pain. The shoulder is never isolated and your pain is most likely linked to multiple imbalances.
For instance, the cervical spine and its function are very interrelated to shoulder function. If the joints of the lower neck are not moving properly then the shoulder will not be able to fire the muscles properly to raise the arm etc.The scapula, its position, and the muscles that control scapular motion are one of the most important structures related to shoulder pain.The triangular structure that is the “shoulder blade” is also the same bone that forms the socket for your arm bone or humerus.You can guess that if the scapula is in the wrong position than the shoulder joint will be shifted to the wrong alignment.Poor alignment of the shoulder joint causes certain muscles to get overtaxed causing impingement, tendinitis, and joint tightness.
This joint is one of the most intricate joints in the body. Since it is not a weight bearing joint, it heavily relies on the stablity of the muscles around it. At our center we will analyze your muscle balance and look at the forearm, hand, thoracic spine.
