Shoulder pain (impingement syndrome/subacromial bursitis/rotator cuff tears) is probably one of the most common areas that we treat. We focus on the rotator cuff muscles primarily as they play the largest role in the stabilization of the shoulder. If the rotator cuff muscles are not functioning properly, it can lead to a host of issues such as impingement syndrome, subacromial bursitis, and even rotator cuff tears. After we treat the rotator cuff muscles, we focus on the scapula and upper spine (thoracic) motion. If these both don’t function properly, it can lead to increased shoulder pain.
