Before starting treatment for shoulder pain, despite the type of injury or condition, correcting the body’s ability to stabilize the affected individual’s shoulder blades can help reduce symptoms. People who frequently sit with a poor posture with their shoulders rounded and their neck pushed forward while staring at a computer screen for an extended period of time may often experience a much more painful shoulder injury. Shoulder blade pinches are an effective and simple exercise that can help stabilize the shoulders. First, you have to bring your shoulder blades together and down, making sure you don’t move your arms and then, you hold that position for about 5 seconds. Approximately 30 shoulder blade pinches can help improve the stability of the shoulders and relieve some of the symptoms.

Another treatment option for shoulder pain that can also be used effectively for improving shoulder injury symptoms is elastic therapeutic tape. The therapeutic tape is an elastic, cotton strip with an acrylic adhesive that usually comes in a variety of colors. Although this product can be purchased at a sporting goods store for personal use, using the therapeutic tape improperly can render it ineffective. It’s recommended to seek a medical professional who specializes in the accurate use and placement of elastic therapeutic tape. If properly applied, the elastic therapeutic taping method can greatly benefit an individual’s shoulder injury or condition and help alleviate shoulder pain and other symptoms.

Finally, chiropractic treatment can be an effective treatment option for many types of shoulder injuries and conditions as well as help keep the symptoms away for good. The shoulder is considered the most mobile joint in the human body, surrounded by a complex system of muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and blood vessels. Even with all the different tissues supporting the shoulder joint, it can shift out of alignment and cause the other structures within the shoulder to function incorrectly. According to the individual’s symptoms, shoulder adjustments and manual manipulations can be performed by a chiropractor to slowly shift it in its proper placement. Additionally, the chiropractor can also adjust the neck and upper back to further help relieve shoulder pain and discomfort. Regular chiropractic care for a shoulder injury or condition can ultimately restore an individual’s natural body functions.

Pain in the Quadratus Lumborum Muscle

A majority of the population have at some point experienced low back pain in their lifetimes. Although low back pain is recognized to result from numerous conditions or injuries on the lumbar spine, muscle strains such as a quadratus lumborum muscle strain, are believed to be a leading cause for the recognizable symptoms of pain and discomfort.
The quadratus lumborum muscle is a sizable muscle in the shape of a triangle, located deep on each respective side of the lower back. The role of the wide muscular tissue is to grant mobility to the lumbar spine in sequence for the torso to move laterally from side to side as well as extend and stabilize the lower spine to improve posture. When this muscle is strained or pulled, the symptoms can restrict movement on the lower back and since the muscular tissue is so extensive, recovery from this type of injury usually requires more time and patience to fully heal.

Achilles Tendon Injury

Achilles tendonitis is a medical term used to describe a condition resulting in irritation of the large tendon, the Achilles tendon. Found in the back of the ankle, this condition is recognized as a common cause for injury among athletes. Excessive use of the Achilles tendon results in inflammation together with swelling and pain.
The development of Achilles tendonitis can be associated with two important factors, most frequently among athletes, which are, lack of flexibility and over-pronation. With age, the tendons will begin to lose flexibility, just the same as other tissues in the body. This change causes the tendons to become more rigid and more vulnerable to injury. For some people, the ankle may roll too far downward and inward with each step they take. This is called over-pronation, which places more stress on the tendons and ligaments of the foot, contributing to injury if not corrected.
Achilles tendonitis may also develop from other factors. An increase in an athlete’s …

The shoulders are the most mobile joints in the human body. Because the ball of the humerus is designed to be larger than the shoulder socket that holds it, the shoulders need to be supported by muscles, tendons, and ligaments to secure them in a stable or natural position. Since the shoulder can be unstable, it is often a site for many common complications. Below are 5 common causes of shoulder pain and their associated symptoms.
Rotator Cuff Tear
Rotator cuff tears within the shoulder are a very common type of shoulder injury. The rotator cuff consists of a set of four muscles: the supraspinatus, the infraspinatus, the subscapularis, and the teres minor. All of these muscles are attached to the bones of the shoulders by tendons, which purspose is to support, stabilize, and grant the arm movement to move up, down and rotate. The rotator cuff ensures that the arm remains in the shoulder socket. Damage or injury from an accident or gradual wear and tear can result in inflammation to t…
