Evidence Based, Result Driven

Shoulder Pain: Forward Shoulder Posture

Shoulder injuries are among the most commonly treated conditions we see here at the clinic. Although there is no cookie-cutter approach for these types of injuries, a lot of shoulder pain is preceded by having forward shoulder posture. Forward shoulder posture narrows the tunnel that shoulder muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bursa need to slide through. Over time this leads to fraying, thickening, inflammation and subsequent pain. This also increases your chances of getting tears.  

Most shoulder injuries occur from having forward shoulder posture combined with a compromising activity such as an overhead press at the gym or sometimes as simple repetitive movement above shoulder height. 

At Motion Science Physiotherapy, we not only address your pain but we work to reverse the cause of your pain so you can remain pain-free. As I mentioned, there is no cookie-cutter approach – a thorough assessment helps us determine the cause so that we can work to address and reverse it. We use various treatment methods to get to recoveries, such as manual therapies, stretches, mobilizations, active exercises, and myofascial techniques
Here is a patient who was experiencing shoulder stiffness, decreased range of motion, and pain in his left shoulder. He injured his shoulder ten years ago from shovelling snow off a roof and has had pain since. 

The first picture below is of him after our first session – here you can see the extent that we have decreased this posture, which is obvious in the coronal plane (view from the top):

This second picture is his follow-up before we began that day’s treatment to show you guys that these results last. To give you an idea, the second picture was taken one week after the first picture. In addition, his pain has reduced, the range of motion is near full, and he has noticed a functional improvement in just one session!
