Kinetic Chain Patterns for Complicated Shoulder Conditions
There is clinical evidence that a huge contribution to shoulder pain comes from prior injuries or surgeries (scars) and musculoskeletal imbalances throughout the entire body. Fascial lines of tension can cause the entire body to compensate. Without doing Total Body Balancing Techniques and treating scars that have accumulated over a lifetime, the shoulder symptoms usually return. Therapists will evaluate the stirrup spring system in the ankle responsible for “Ascending Syndromes” that work their way up into the knee, hip, spine, shoulder and neck. Therapists will also correct tibial torsion patterns in the knee, along with iliosacral torsions and resultant ascending roto-scoliosis of the lumbar spine. If uncorrected, this can lead to ascending kyphosis of the thoracic spine, and resultant Atlanto-occipital joint compression. After treating scars, and doing total body balancing, manual therapists will evaluate and treat shoulder impingent, bursitis, bicipital tendinosis, rotator cuff injuries, and thoracic outlet. The highlight of this class will be new clinical studies and techniques that will revolutionize the treatment of advanced-stage adhesive capsulitis, known as “Frozen Shoulder.”
