Nagging shoulder pain can be a real pain to put up with throughout the day!
It impacts just about everything you want to be doing from reaching overhead, putting your seatbelt and jacket on to just name a few. It also can prevent you from performing you normal workout and fitness exercises as well.
In this case study from On Track Physio we are going to look at shoulder pain as well as tricep pain that caused a grabbing or catching pain in shoulder, as well as pain in elbow upon full extension of arm.
When we examined the shoulder he had pain with overhead motion as well as reaching across the body. Resistance testing indicated a few particular muscles in the shoulder that we wanted to address via soft tissue work as seen in video below.
We then followed this up with specific exercises that he was able to perform at home as opposed to visiting the clinic multiple times per week. Within less than 6 visits he has back to his normal fitness program with minimal to no limitations in the shoulder and confident to continue on without treatment.
At On Track Physio we don't waste time performing meaningless "filler" activities. We pick the most efficient treatment based upon our assessment to get you back to your goals the FASTEST.
