Shoulder Pain - Beaches Toronto Chiropractor Dr. Kelly Robazza
Dr. Kelly Robazza for Beaches Health Group In Toronto Discussing some of the common complaints we see here in our office, how we treat them and some tips on giving you home care. One of the more common white collar injuries that we're seeing with people in front of computers a lot is rotator cuff strain. That will create lots of shoulder pain. A lot of times the shoulders are being held in an upright position for prolonged periods of time. It is not the amount of intensity of the weight you are holding but just the length of time that weight is being held and that creates injury and repetitive strain. What we see here is a lot of the rotator cuff muscles in the back of the shoulder will cramp up and create trigger points and refer pain anywhere down the arm. So that's called a referred pain from a muscle, or myogenic pain.
In this case we 've selected the infraspinatus muscle or one of the rotator cuff muscles and we've hooked up a little muscle stimulation. You want to get either end of the stem at the beginning and the end of the muscles so you really get the maximum contraction. Again with electricity we are fatiguing this muscle so we are making it supple and ready for some myofascial release. We are going to finish this treatment after we have done the stim, with some active release techniques. Active release is meant to trap the muscle short and drag my contact through a range of motion to break up the scar tissue and any adhesions that happen to be found in that rotator cuff it is important to reset the tone on that muscle so that it doesn't pull and create more tension to the tendon when she leaves my office.
