Years ago my right shoulder was hurting so bad I was afraid I would have to give up my career as a chiropractor.
It was that bad.
It hurt 24/7 and just about every movement was unbearable.
I was diagnosed with subacromial bursitis and supraspinatus tendinosis among other things. And yes, it is as bad as it sounds.
Basically from years of overuse and abnormal mechanics, the tissues of my shoulder had become massively inflamed and were screaming at me.
My Path to Recovery
I wish I could say my recovery happened overnight, but it took some time. It had been a long process that created the problem and it needed to be a multi-systems approach and process to correct the problem.
Specific, corrective chiropractic care was essential for my cervical spine (neck), thoracic spine (upper back), and my shoulder.
The second piece was to regain the correct movement of my shoulder and firing of the right muscles. It had been abnormally functioning for so long the right muscles were shut off and there was a ton of scar tissue built up around the joint.
The third piece was to work on all of the adhesions, trigger points, and scar tissue that had built up around the joint in response to the chronic injury.
The recovery process was not always fun, and it was a lot of hard work, but it went from an almost career ending issue to finding myself rock climbing all over the world.
I went from barely being able to lift my arm over my head to doing handstands, strict pressing 185 lbs, rock climbing, throwing a frisbee, and playing tennis.
I have had so many injuries and suffered over the years, and I have made it my purpose to alleviate that pain and suffering in others while helping them to optimize their health and their quality of life.
Our mission truly is to educate, adjust, and serve as many families as possible towards optimal health through corrective chiropractic care.
