While most people assume pain and musculoskeletal problems happen playing sport, twisting the wrong way or lifting something – the truth is sitting around (especially with bad posture) can be just as bad for the body. So what warning signs should you be looking out for when it comes to shoulder related injuries?
Shoulder pain may be related to heavy industry work and sporting injuries or poor posture using Smart phones/tablets/laptops. With an aging population in Australia the terms chronic wear and tear may also apply. Other types of shoulder pain can be related to rotator cuff tears, bursitis, infection, or an arthritic inflammation of the joint lining. Then of course there is the Frozen Shoulder, this is generally pain over 3 months with chronic stiffness of the shoulder. Often clients will avoid shoulder movements in an attempt to lessen this shoulder pain, which then causes stiffening among the muscle tissues and fascia and leads to less movement and more pain.
The Harvard School of Medicine may have only just proved it, but Bowen Practitioners have long been aware of neck and shoulder pain resulting from poor posture or badly designed work stations. The Trapezius and Rhomboid muscles are working hardest, when keeping the head immobile for working or sitting for long periods of time, so these suffer the most. Chances are if you have neck or shoulder pain, these will be the culprits. The lower Trapezius can also contribute to frozen shoulder, and pain in the shoulder joint.
Bowen Therapy provides another bowstring in the fight against Shoulder Pain and restriction. From the moment of diagnosis, Bowen Therapy’s Upper Back & Neck procedure begins reducing pain and swelling of the Trapezius and Rhomboid muscles. With shoulder procedure and supportive exercises done daily the results are outstanding. Bowen Therapy is a set system of small moves, the technique is a gentle, fast and effective way to treat muscle and connective tissue disorders. The Bowen Therapy client can, within weeks, enjoy increased activity, if not sport, without pain. In some Bowen Therapy clients, shoulder pain symptoms have been known to cease altogether in four to six months instead of years by other means.
