Do You Have?

  1. Sharp pain upon lifting your arm overhead?
  2. Constant dull and achy pain in your shoulder and mid-back?

What Is Causing These Symptoms?

  1. Overuse of your muscles.
  2. Improper joint mechanics in your hips, mid-back, neck, clavicle or shoulder joint
  3. Muscle imbalances via: tight anterior muscles (pecs & subscapularis) and fatigued/weakened posterior muscles (rhomboids & traps)
  4. Decreased oxygen, blood and nutrients to the injured joints and tissues
