There is no one regimen when treating the diagnosis or diagnoses. Each person may respond some what differently to the same injury/pain. Often times there are multiple diagnoses that affect the entire region in pain.Through body palpation and sensitivity to verbal and non-verbal patient feedback, I will listen carefully with my "fingers" and mobilize the aching areas. Like a conversation, I need to communicate with the body openly and patiently in order to get to know it and trace the source of the problem .
Shoulder pain can come
from the shoulder joint
, can be referred from the cervical and thoracic regions, or from in between the scapula s
and more. Patient may refer with acromioclavicular joint sprain, shoulder osteoarthritis, shoulder tendinitis, rotator cuff injury and more.
When I treat the shoulder girdle area, I will evaluate the quality of the motions in the scapula, shoulder, neck and elbow joints. They
all might be connected to the affected painful region. Once I get a clear picture of where the limitations stems from, I will apply myofascial release, joint mobilization, Feldenkrais and Alexander techniques and more.
