The human body is intricately designed for all kinds of diverse movements and is capable of performing the most amazing athletic feats. With over 500 muscles in the body that connects to a strong skeletal structure, our bodies are both powerful and durable.

Each side of the body is covered in muscles arranged into muscle groups and have specific roles in movement. Some muscles make the primary movement in an action while others fix joints in place, help primary actions, and counter actions. The muscles that counter actions are called antagonists.

Muscle imbalances occur when certain muscle groups become overworked or too strong, underused or too weak, or become spasmodic and dysfunctional due to injury to the skeleton, joints, or muscle it...

Shoulder pain is a common condition, especially the older you get. It is estimated that 9% of the population will suffer shoulder pain at some, where approximately 25% of adults over the age of 50 experience shoulder pain.

There are many factors that contribute to shoulder pain that may include:

  • Injury – over use, sprain/strain, ligament tears, fractures and other injuries can occur at the shoulder and surrounding structures, or rotator cuff muscle tears
  • Bursitis – Bursitis is a flat, fluid filled sac that when damaged can become inflamed
  • Arthritis – inflammation that affects the joints of the body that may be caused by age, “wear and tear”, or a chronic autoimmune disorder called rheumatoid arthritis
  • Shoulder Impingement – a condition that can be caused by over use, arthritis, or poor posture that can lead to degeneration of the joint or over growth of the bone around the joint that may restrict movement and cause pain during movement
  • Neck issues – certain conditions off the neck such as, disc problems that may or may not involve the nerve root, misalignment of the vertebrae, poor posture, or muscle spasm can affect the nerves that feed the arm or hand

Because the shoulder needs movement to remain healthy, when shoulder pain occurs, the first response to pain is guard or restrict painful movement.

Unfortunately, without movement, the shoulder can begin to develop a condition called adhesive capsulitis a.k.a., frozen shoulder, which effects approximately 4% of the population and typically people between the ages of 40 – 50 years old.
