Scapular or shoulder blade dysfunctions are typically the result of unsynchronized and uncoordinated movement of the muscles that surround the shoulder including the trapezius, rhomboid and serratus anterior muscles. Any change in the activation of these muscles or posturally how someone holds their shoulders on their back call fall under the umbrella of scapular dyskinesis.
If you suffer from kyphosis, take part in sports that require you to lift your arms overhead, or if you are lacking strength and flexibility in the shoulders, arms, or core you may be at higher risk for scapular dysfunctions.
Our highly skilled postural correction and movement practioners will help reduce inflammation and retrain your shoulders and core with proper scapular movement. We work on the impacted shoulder and surrounding musculature to restore movement and strength. For long term health of your shoulder, we also assess your posture to make sure it is not the cause of your pain.
