Shoulder pain interrupts many of our daily activities and tends to get worse before it gets better without treatment.  Successful treatment of shoulder pain invloves  good assessment of what is causing the shoulder pain.  It involves treating any restrictions involving the  biomechanics of the shoulder girdle, rib cage and  spine.  Treating soft tissue restrictions in the shoulder girdle region also need to be addressed.  Poor posture is often involved with shoulder pain.   Awareness of how your posture effects your shoulder’s function helps to maintain long term health with your shoulder.  Lastly  strengthening your weaker  shoulder muscles  and relaxing tight shoulder muscles will aid in returning you to a pain-free  shoulder!

I offer free physical therapy  craniosacral  assessments for pediatric clients under 6 months old.  Babies can have craniosacral restriction from delivery or the position he/she was in while in the womb.  Craniosacral restrictions can contribute to a variety of issues affecting your baby  including sucking issues, irritability, and  ear aches.  These issues can be quickly resolved  if  the underlying cause is a craniosacral restriction  and is  treated and released.
