Did you know that your shoulder blade has 17 different muscles that attach directly to it to coordinate the movement of your arm? The shoulder is the most complicated joint in the body and has to move through an incredible range of motion while maintaining strength and support. The shoulder actually has four joints that connect your humerus, collarbone and shoulder blade to function as one unit. Shoulder pain can occur for a variety of reasons, but is typically from poor posture, weakness of rotator cuff muscles or injury.
Since the shoulder motions are so complex, it takes experts in movement analysis to truly understand what is the root cause of your problem. At Perfect Balance Physical Therapy, we have years of medical training in movement analysis to determine exactly where your pain is coming from. We put together a comprehensive treatment plan that will quickly relieve your pain and return your shoulder’s full range of motion. The goal is to get you back to normal activities as pain-free and as quickly as possible. Furthermore, we educate you on posture techniques and simple exercises that you can do to maintain your shoulder health.
