Shoulder Problems

Signs or Symptoms

Pain, ache or weakness on using your arm.

Description

Shoulder injuries run the gamut from ligament injuries, muscle injuries and cartilage damage. The condition can be mild or debilitating as in a frozen shoulder.

Causes

Trauma, whether it is repeated or one severe action is the usual cause.

Standard Treatment

Ultasound,stretching and exercise to strengthen the muscles. In severe cases cortisone injection, anti-inflammatory medication or surgery.

AK Approach

The examination begins with a full investigation of the supporting muscles of the shoulder. As the shoulder is a muscular socket with a bony ball, the muscles are the most integral part. Testing is done to determine that the muscles are functional and can function at any angle the arm is placed. Treatment is directed to normalize any muscular imbalance then ensure proper coordination of function between the muscles. Nutritional therapies aimed at increasing factors that would lead to normalizing the functions of the muscles and reducing any inflammation are considered.

Other lifestyle modifications are used to prevent or minimize exacerbating the condition.  A specific program for your needs is created.
