If your daily routine involves repetitive tasks with extensive periods of computer or mobile phone usage, then you may be at risk of flattening of your spinal curves, disc  compression, or even early arthritis.

 

Most people are unaware of what damage can be done by simple “repetitive” postural strain and how simple it is for us to treat and help prevent it.

Common diagnostic terms for shoulder  injuries include:

 

  • entrapment syndrome
  • frozen shoulder
  • rotator cuff injuries

 

Shoulders are vital to normal day to day activities and are often injured.

 

Your shoulder relies heavily on the joints and muscles of the trunk to function, so are never treated in isolation.

 

Our approach is to examine the  muscular attachments and spinal relationship to your shoulder to achieve the best results.

 

Interestingly a lot of shoulder or shoulder blade pain is actually referred pain from the duodenum , stomach and gall bladder! We understand referred pain and make sure we are treating the cause of your pain and not just the symptoms.
