Our mission is to help you end your Shoulder Pain and reduce the pinching you feel in your shoulder joint. We have devoted the entire month of May to educating and helping people reduce and even eliminate Shoulder pain and impingement (pinching). Did you know that the surgical approach to “end” your Shoulder pain is to cut out the “bad” parts that are crowding out the “good” parts and causing your shoulder pain. The problem with that approach is that most of the time the parts that are taken out might not be the cause of your shoulder pain. Research shows us that 50% of all people over 60 years old have pain free rotator cuff tears that are seen on an MRI and Ultrasounds. So, Don’t Panic if there is a tear on your MRI or Ultrasound. It is probably not causing your pain and limited function.
Believe it or not a faster and safer solution is to find the true root of the problem and help you move better with a natural, drug-free, surgery-free, and injection-free. Most people feel that there is no hope and they have tried everything with no results. We are here to tell you that is not true. There is hope for you and there are some simple things that can help reduce your pain, move better, and get stronger to prevent this from coming back. Guess what? The treatments are not painful and most people feel better after one session. Are you worried about the cost? Well, the approach we use is some of the most inexpensive sessions available. Typically, when someone goes to the doctor first they will get referred to get x-rays, an MRI, get shots and epidurals, and then see an Orthopedic Shoulder specialist. All of this can cost several thousands of dollars. Most people may feel the same or only slightly better for a short amount of time than when they started this path. This can be very frustrating for you.
If you decide to do nothing you may save money in the short term, but your condition may get worse. Too much rest will lead to more pain, less function, and it makes you look and feel older because of rounded shoulder posture. This cascade of events sometimes lead to lower self esteem and depression. Well, we are here to let you know there is a simple program that can help you reduce your shoulder pain that does not waste your money, time, and will not leave you feeling worse. The best part is you can do many of the self-treatments in the comfort of your own home once you are shown what to do, how to do it, and when to do it. Most people will feel 80% better in 4-6 weeks, even if they have suffered for years and decades.
