Shoulder

Many people carry stress in their shoulders. The muscles tighten, which can lead to joint issues and a lot of pain.

The shoulder is connected to so many parts of the human body – spine, neck, rib cage. All of which can lead to shoulder injuries.
Shoulder injuries can severely impact on your daily life, not being able to use your arm, lift and carry, drive a car, type on your keyboard.

Some common injuries include:

  • Shoulder dislocation
    • The most common form of dislocation
    • Contact sports are the most common form of dislocation, especially in younger people.
    • People often try to pop the shoulder back in, causing even more trauma
  • Rotator Cuff
    • 4 muscles which support the shoulder joint make up the rotator cuff
    • Chronic use, aging or acute injury can lead to a break down of the rotator cuff
    • Causes significant pain and a sever lack of mobility
  • Tendinopathy
    • Inflammation of the tendon
    • Caused by repetitive overloading of the tendon
  • Post Surgery Pain
    • General soreness from surgery related to the shoulder
    • Rehab for Reconstructive surgery

People often carry their stress through their shoulders, carrying the weight of the world, if you will. It is best to get in early with shoulder injuries so you can get back to peak health sooner.
