Shoulder

Shoulder injuries are one of the most common types of injuries out there. Our shoulder joints are very intricate and have the ability to move in 360 degrees of rotation. Sharp pain, dull achiness, and muscle burning sensations can all be a part of a shoulder injury.

Shoulder injuries often occur in the rotator cuff of the shoulder joint, usually resulting in a strain or tear. The only way to properly diagnose this is to have an ultrasonic or MRI image taken of the soft tissues. Once diagnosed, only then can a proper treatment aid your recovery. AC Joint sprains are also quite common in a sport or athletic setting and can be caused by point of impact, hyperextension, or pushing a heavy load.

Prevention of such injuries requires the right program and tools in order to maintain mobility and increase rotator cuff strength. Always use an appropriate warm up when weight lifting, and even performing a job specific warm up before shift, can both drastically reduce your chance of injury.
