Shoulder Series Part 1 – Your Diagnosis is Not as Important as You Think it is
May 25, 2017
Your shoulder diagnosis (injury) is what is causing your pain at the moment BUT what is MORE IMPORTANT is the MULTIFACTORIAL CAUSES of the injury.
What I mean by this is, it is expected that your PAIN will gradually reside once the injured tissues start to heal. This is your brain letting your body know that it is safe to move again.
However, if you didn’t address ALL of the CAUSES of the injury i.e. shoulder posture, thoracic posture, flexibility/mobility issues, weak dynamic stabilisers, muscle imbalances, cervical issues, movement patterns, your injury will simply flare up again and the pain will return!
You could have shoulder bursitis, rotator cuff tears, impingement, subluxation, bony spurs… None of these matters if you don’t identify and treat the causes.
