Proven Therapies for Shoulder Pain

These athletes require care that relieves pain and restores function without disrupting their daily lives so they can continue to compete at the highest level.
Now, you too have access therapies that were once reserved for world-class athletes.
MECHANICS OF SHOULDER INJURIES
To properly address shoulder pain, you have to look beyond the shoulder itself to the supporting tissues and systems. Lifting your arm requires not just the shoulder joint, but also the clavicle (collar bone) and scapula (shoulder blade). If both are not moving properly, it can cause undue pressure on the shoulder, leading to wear out and injury.
Shoulders also contain a lot of soft tissue (including muscles, ligaments, and tendons) but get very little blood supply. This is one reason why shoulder injuries are common and why scar tissue forms in the shoulder easier than other joints. Scar tissue is tight, fibrous tissue that contains more pain fibers than regular tissue. It is painful and restricts normal motion.
When shoulder motion is restricted, the body does not produce synovial fluid to lubricate and protect the joint capsule. Left untreated, this can lead to permanent damage in the shoulder and may lead to shoulder replacement surgery.
InMotion Pain Solutions understands the mechanics of shoulder pain and how to relieve pain and restore proper motion to injured shoulders without the need for drugs, injections, or surgery.
