Earlier this week, we posted an article about knee pain. We’ve also covered back pain the past. The point we are trying to make is that you do not have to be in pain. Unless you have suffered a structural injury, like a torn ligament, pain caused by tightness, weakness, or imbalances is curable.
A Recent Situation
During a meeting with a client recently, we talked at length with a member about pain in her shoulder blade. We’d addressed the pain the past, but we weren’t aware it was still bothering her so much. She told us that it went away for a bit, but came back and now causes numbness in her hand. Worse yet, doctors can’t seem to find anything structurally wrong.
We took some time to put our client through a basic assessment to better understand the cause of her pain. We came to understand that the cause of her current pain is when the shoulder blade is in a flexed position. That, with the numbness in her hand, tells us something is pinching. With this understanding, we can give her accessory exercises to help fix her pain.
We Hear It All The Time
It is quite common to meet with new potential members and hear about how they deal with back pain on a daily basis. Often times, this is from sitting too much during the day with bad posture. With some simple stretches and dedicated core work, we can eliminate a lot, if not all, of the back pain.
The bottom line is that you don’t have to live with pain. It may take longer to fix you pain than you expect. However, with consistent practice, and proper expectations, you can live a better life. And, that’s why we exist, to build better individuals. Lastly, if we can’t dramatically improve your pain, we have licensed professions on referral who can.
All you have to do is ask.
