Modified shoulder assessments to guide treatment.

Updated: Sep 14, 2021

This paper introduced the 'symptom modification' approach to what was traditionally more orthopaedic lead structural diagnosis ie it looks at how to reduce the pain. There's 4 areas Jeremy reviews: the humeral head (ball bit of the ball and socket joint) position, our neck position, our thoracic (mid back) position and our shoulder blade position. Basically if we change these, or a combination of these, does it change the pain? If so then this can guide the treatment. Happy education...
