In order to have a healthy shoulder you need to be able to touch your bicep to your ear. The most common cause of this restriction is adhesion in muscles of the rotator cuff. Our treatment fixes adhesion, restores function, and provides long lasting results!! Here is a look at a few before and after photos from recent patients.

Cupping is an ancient technique, that has made a resurgence in the fitness and health world as a treatment option to "help" with pain and recovery.
But what does cupping actually do?
Without a diagnosis first, treatments like these actually cause more damage than healing. Cupping does a great job of damaging blood vessels and capillaries, allowing blood to pool in big red circles near the surface of the skin.
The problem is, there is no specific problem that cupping can fix or alleviate. This means the provider that gave you this treatment is using guesswork or trial and error to help you. Not good.
Let's keep ancient treatments in ancient history where they belong.
Your problem deserves a complete and accurate diagnosis by an expert. We are 2 of 3 providers in Denver certified to fix what cupping can't.
Get your diagnosis.
Get treatment.

Treatment of adhesion in the upper neck muscle, rectus capitus posterior minor. Adhesion in this muscle will cause headaches, neck pain, and tightness. It will also cause forward head posture which can cause pain in the lower neck.

Did you catch episode 33 of #fullbodyfixradio yet? While this protocol is great for general shoulder health and even some care for a superior impingement/pain syndrome - if you've been given a diagnosis of #frozenshoulder find a provider like @barefootrehab that can isolate the soft tissue adhesions and treat it appropriately. #activerelease #integrativediagnosis #sportschiro #chiropractic

The rotator cuff is made up of four muscles and their tendons. It provides stability and strength for the shoulder joint, anchoring the upper arm bone to the shoulder blade so that movements of the arm can occur in a smooth and coordinated fashion. Shoulder pain may be caused by inflammation or injury to the rotator cuff tendons resulting from trauma, overuse, weakness, poor posture, or a faulty movement pattern. In the early stages pain may be caused by “impingement syndrome”. The rotator cuff can become irritated or inflamed when it becomes pinched between the roof portion of the shoulder and the ball portion of the shoulder joint. Some common causes of impingement syndrome are repetitive throwing, lifting, or overhead activities such as painting. Impingement syndrome may cause shoulder aching or sharp pain when trying to reach behind your back. Physical Therapy is one of the most effective ways of treating impingement syndrome #PhysicalTherapy #Acupuncture #Massage

There may not be a bigger fad in the health and fitness world than taping.
We feel bad for the injured people who are told this can help.
It's treatments like these that show why the standard of musculoskeletal healthcare in this country is so bad.
Clinical excellence doesn't come in blue, or pink, or any other color for that matter. You deserve better.
If your Chiro/PT/MD/LMT is utilizing tape to fix your problem, it's time to find a new provider.
We are 2 of 3 doctors in Denver certified to fix what taping can't.
Get your diagnosis.
Get treatment.

Another example of bad treatment and highway robbery in the process. If your doctor prescribes this as your treatment plan, it's a red flag 🚩and you need to find a new doctor. Check out link below to find an expert doctor near you that can actually find and fix your problem.

In today’s last  #muscleoftheday we are continuing our week on nerves and nerve entrapments. As we said in other posts this week nerves can get stuck or glued to surrounding muscles in 156 different places in the body. That is a lot of places for problems to occur!

When you have a nerve entrapment it may present like the following symptoms:

Numbness

Aching

Burning

Tension

Severe Pain

Up today we have a really common site for a nerve entrapment in the neck, that spot is in what is called the scalene muscles. These muscles are small and sit right up against the side bones in the neck.

When nerves leave the spinal cord and make their way out through the rest of the body they start by piercing their way through the scalene.

Essentially all of the upper limbs are controlled by the upper nerves in the neck and any problem down the arm and into the hand can actually be caused by an entrapment of the nerve higher up in the neck.

In many instances of carpal tunnel, elbow pain or numbness down the hand the problem actually originated up top.

Unfortunately many doctors, especially surgeons forget their basic anatomy and continue to look at the site of the problem or pain as the root cause.
Too many nerve releases, nerve relocations or even nerve removals happen everyday because nobody took the time to accurately assess the patient from a biomechanics standpoint.

As I have said in other posts there is too much of the following in musculoskeletal care:

1. Too much focusing solely on the symptoms and symptom relief.
2. Not enough focusing on the symptoms at all and completely disregarding them.

There needs to be a good mix of both to actually fully interpret and address the problem.

So if you have numbness, tingling, burning in the hand, or have been diagnosed with carpal tunnel with a poor outcome it might be time to get to a specialist who can accurately diagnose and fix your problem.

Massage can also help specifically address a number of health issues. Bodywork can:
• Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion.
• Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body's natural defense system.
• Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.
• Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body's natural painkiller.
• Lessen depression and anxiety.
• Relieve migraine pain.
• Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
• Improve the condition of the body's largest organ—the skin.
• Increase joint flexibility.
• Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.
• Reduce post-surgery adhesions and swelling.
• Reduce spasms and cramping.
• Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.

In today’s #muscleoftheday we are continuing our week on nerves and nerve entrapments. As we said in other posts this week nerves can get stuck or glued to surrounding muscles in 156 different places in the body. That is a lot of places for problems to occur!

When you have a nerve entrapment it may present like the following symptoms:

Severe Pain

Have you ever been guilty of thinking a pain down in your wrist or hand must be carpal tunnel?

Do you actually get numbness and tingling in the middle of the hand into the fingers?

Then today’s nerve might be your culprit!

Up today we have the median nerve. This muscle has quite a journey from up near the neck all the way to the wrist to get where it needs to go and to do its job.

During its long trek there is a lot of areas where it can get caught up and glued, but usually the problem will show the symptom further down in the wrist, but is that really the problem?

Most likely no.

Well not 100 percent, if you had your wrist crushed it could definitely be the true carpal tunnel.

Most likely no though. The median nerve is more likely to get caught in two other places, up in the neck and armpit, or down just below the elbow.

Unfortunately the carpal tunnel surgeons often forget their basic anatomy and continue to do a carpal tunnel release.
Sure that might buy you a few months of relief, but it will most certainly come back. Then you get to do a few more.

Wouldn't it be a lot easier if the doctor quit messing around and got to the root cause of the problem and fixed it for good?

It would save you the time and frustration of being in a cast for a few weeks.

Luckily there are good doctors out there who are experts at looking at your from a biomechanics standpoint and able to accurately diagnose the true problem.

Even better they are the best in the world at actually fixing the problem with their hands or an instrument.

If you are lucky you have one in your area and can find them at:

In my video today we are looking at the idea of measurable results for your progress. Too much in the musculoskeletal world the doctor relies solely on just how the patient feels and ends up being too symptom based and focused. Symptoms are important to let us know there is a problem, but measuring the results of the symptoms only can actually prove to be troublesome. In my office and any office of #integrativediagnosis doctors we are trained to ALWAYS have a measurable component associated with our treatment to know if we are making lasting results. Always measure progress!

At the end of the day here in the office and taking some time to reflect on a big problem I see... treatments that only block pain and don't fix dysfunction! They are bad and dangerous!

I wanted to take the time a few times per day to reflect on a topic or idea that came about during my day to day interactions with my patients. Today I wanted to focus on the brokenness of the insurance system and how it really will just set you up for failure. Another key point is to try not to make your decision solely on price before you know the full value.

Mobility and stretching fall into the category of maintenance, just like brushing your teeth. You should work on mobility and flexibility when you already have healthy muscles and good ranges of motion. However, if you're feeling pain, tightness, or utilizing mobility methods to fix an injury, you are past the point where mobility is effective, and you will get limited results. Your pain and injury needs a complete and accurate diagnosis first, and then the best treatment can be selected for your problem. We are 2 of 3 doctors in Denver metro certified to find and fix what stretching/rolling/smashing/mobility can't.
