Alignment Therapy Treatments
Shoulder problems including pain, are one of the more common reasons for physician visits for musculoskeletal symptoms. The shoulder is the most movable joint in the body, however unstable because of this range of motion. This instability increases the likelihood of joint injury, often leading to a degenerative process in which tissues break down and no longer function well. Therapists perform range of motion and stress tests to gauge how well the tissues respond and where possible impingements, weakness, locking and pain is experienced. Therapists focus on the shoulder girdle in its entirety accessing all four sides as well as inside the armpit (axilla) to address the glenohumeral joint.
