The shoulder is an extremely flexible joint allowing us to move the shoulder in directions like no other joint. This flexibility is what allows us to do things like paint a ceiling or pitch a baseball.
To have this great flexibility the shoulder can become unstable. The shoulder is connected to the body by ligaments and muscles, and has a lot of mobility; however, it is one of the most unstable joints in the body.
What’s your risk?
It used to be believed that you only had a painful shoulder from a rugged job or if you played a lot of sports. These activities generally required a lot of shoulder mobility and flexibility and included the following:
- Overhead athletes, like tennis players, swimmers, baseball pitchers
- Construction workers
That said, we are treating the painful shoulder across the spectrum including middle/high school non-athletes, stay at home parents (both mom and dad), and active adults that all report that they are not sure why they have a painful shoulder or when they may have hurt it.
Common symptoms reported by our clients include:

Did you know that YOU have the right to choose your physical therapist? When you get a physical therapy prescription from your physician, you can visit any provider you like. It’s common for the physician’s office to recommend a provider if the office is familiar with or has an affiliation with that provider. The choice is yours. You can either visit the provider recommended by your physician, or any other provider that you feel comfortable with.
Did you know?
Heel pain affects approximately 10% of the US population, resulting in 1 million medical visits per year for treatment. Plantar fasciitis is typically the diagnosis the patient receives during the medical visit; however, plantar fasciitis is only one potential cause of heel pain. The plantar fascia is a strong, dense strip of tissue that runs from the heel to the ball of the foot. Its sole job is to support the arch of the foot. Nice Plantar Fascia & Heel Spur Review
It is easy to see how the plantar fascia may be causing all this pain as the foot impacts the ground when you think about how often the full weight of the body is concentrated on the plantar fascia. This forces it to stretch as the arch of the foot flattens from the full weight of the body, possibly leading too stress where the plantar fascia attaches at the heel bone. If this keeps up, the result can be pain caused by small tears of the fascia.
If it is not the plantar fascia then what else could be causing my heel pain?
- Calf muscle weakness/trigger points (muscles on the back of the lower leg) can result in referred pain directly to the heel. We see this after someone has changed/added a workout program or modified the type of shoes they wear. This adds additional stress to the calf muscles that they may not have been ready for and lead small areas of irritation in the muscles.
- Calf muscle tightness – this causes the connective tissue surrounding the muscle to pull harder on the Achilles tendon leading to tightness at the heel, possibly resulting in the pain you’re feeling. Study Discussing Heel Pain Treatment
- Sciatic nerve irritation – the nerve that runs from the low back through the hip and down the leg to the foot can get tight or pinched not allowing the nerve to move easily as you walk. This can lead to irritation of the nerve causing pain that is located at the heel. This is very common for anyone with any history of low back pain or hip pain.
- Poor Posture – if you sit slumped forward most of the day the muscles and structures from the back of your neck, upper back, lower back, and hips can get tight and shortened, consequently pulling on the heel.
- Weakness of the muscles around the hip can cause muscles in the leg to shorten to help stabilize, consequently pulling on the heel.
Why is this so confusing?

One of the most important things you do is breath. Do you know that you take more than 200,000 breaths per day? Without food, you can live a few weeks, without water, you can live for a few days. But without breathing, you can only last a few minutes. Breathing keeps us alive. But what you might not know is that how you breathe may either improve or deteriorate your quality of life. If you have chronic pain, mental fogginess, feel lethargic, stress and/or tension, you may not helping yourself get better, because you are just not breathing properly.
When you breathe, it affects all aspects of your body. It oxygenates your body, restores organs, cells and tissues. When you inhale, the oxygen is forced into your blood stream, which revitalizes your body. When you exhale, it carries out the toxins from your system. Essentially breathing helps your body live and re-live.
So let’s talk about what Proper versus Improper Breathing will do for our bodies.
A review of the the most recent statistics from American Lung Association and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) reveals that over 430,000 people die each year from smoking-related diseases. The American Lung Association warns that cigarette smoking leads to 87% of lung cancer and emphysema.
Smoking is known to cause:
- Heart disease
- Lung cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Chronic lung disease
So we know smoking causes some pretty bad diseases!!!
Smoking can also impact your Physical Therapy and is bad for your bones!
Bones, tendons, and muscles all get their nutrition from a healthy blood flow. When a bone is injured (i.e. fractured) or a tendon/ligament is surgically repaired blood flow to the injured/repaired area delivers desperately needed nutrients to help the healing process.
Smoking caused an increased level of nicotine in the blood, which causes constricted blood vessels. This leads to decreased blood flow, which impairs delivery of oxygen and other nutrients to healing tissues. This delay in healing can be as much as 50% during bone healing. This mechanism is also responsible for delayed tendon-to-bone healing (similar to rotator cuff repairs).
Because of the reduced nutrition reaching the bones, bone density becomes affected and this can also lead to osteoporosis.
Quit Smoking For Better Healing
Chronic smoking is proven to have a significant impact on your health and can lead to:
- Decreased bone and tendon to bone healing.
- Increased risk of osteoporosis.
- Increased risk of hip fracture.
- Increased risk of blood clots.

What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture has been used as form of healing for over 3000 years. It is quickly gaining favor in the West as an effective compliment to traditional western medical treatments. An acupuncturists looks for imbalances in the body, discovers the root cause of the imbalance and works to correct that imbalance to improve health and well-being. We consider the environment, mental and emotional aspect of the person along with the physical body in our diagnosis and treatment of the patient.
Many people have heard of using acupuncture successfully in pain management as well as cases of infertility. The National Institutes of Health and The World Health Organization recognize acupuncture to be a complete medical system that can be used effectively in the treatment of:
- Muscle pain
- Dental pain
