What Is The Cause Of Your Shoulder Pain And Can It Be Fixed?

Shoulder pain?….Stiff shoulder joints? …Can’t seem to get your shoulders loosened up before or after exercise?…. Me too….Or at least I did…
Hi, Bob Lutfy, VP of Strength and Conditioning for THE FITNESS DOCTOR. Today we’re going to take a look at one of the most common complaints from athletes, those who exercise regularly and more specifically, people like YOU and I.

THE PROBLEM – SHOULDER PAIN – THE CULPRITS

  • Completely or partially torn muscles
  • Shortened/weak pec muscles
  • Internal rotation at shoulders due to shortened pecs and weakened posterior shoulder musculature
  • Forward head/ weak neck muscles
  • Internal rotation at shoulders due to shortened pecs and weakened posterior shoulder musculature

NOTE: IF YOU SUFFER FROM:

A) SEVERE SHOULDER PAIN AND

B) EXTREMELY PAINFUL MOVEMENT AND MOBILITY

YOU MAY WANT TO SEE YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE RESUMING PHYSICAL ACTIVITES

The Contributing Factors:

  • Poor exercise/movement biomechanics over time
  • Injury to shoulder capsule: usually from an impact injury

    Ex: car accident, skiing accident football injury etc.

  • Poor posture: yes poor posture greatly affects the shoulder area and can cause deficits in stability, mobility and alignment, causing pain in the shoulder area.


SO?…..WHAT TO DO?…….

This Leads to the Following:

  • Weak postural muscular support system
  • Overstretched/shortened muscles ARE weak muscles
  • Weak muscles CAN NOT effectively support the skeletal system
  • Weak muscles lead to poor posture resulting in shearing forces being placed upon joints when we move.

That in Turns Leads to:

  • Joint pain
  • Joint stiffness
  • Decreased flexibility
  • Instability
  • Overall muscular weakness YES THAT IS TRUE!!!

Notice Something Familiar Here?

The same things that result from poor sitting posture result from poor shoulder biomechanics. This is what I meant by the body compensating for incorrect movement patterns that become habit.


SO? DO YOU WANT A SOLUTION?…….
