Do you suffer with achy pain between your shoulder blades?

Is there numbness or tingling down your arm?

Are you experiencing a sharp pain at the “point” of the shoulder?

Do you have trouble raising your arm to comb your hair or slip on a sweater?

The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body. It includes four tendons that hold muscle to bone. Together, these four rotator cuff tendons stabilize the upper arm bone to the shoulder socket, allowing for a wide range of motion. Every time you raise an arm over your head, a series of specific actions must transpire in the correct order and with precise timing. This coordinated motion of joints and muscles is called “scapulo-humeral rhythm” – scapulo refers to the shoulder blade (scapula) and humeral refers to the large bone of the arm (humerus). Simply because the shoulder can move in this way, it is susceptible to a variety of shoulder injuries, such as a dislocated shoulder. Shoulder injuries are especially common with overuse or structural and muscular imbalances.

Severe shoulder pain and stiffness go together with a variety of shoulder injuries or disorders. Shoulder pain generally increases from a light tingle to a dull ache, especially at night or while sleeping on the shoulder affected.
