Dr Brad Ivanchuk here. I am a Burlington, Ontario Chiropractor at Life Chiropractic Centre on Guelph Line in the Beacon Hill Plaza.
I am also an American Posture Institute certified Posture Expert and Postural Neurologist. And a canfitpro certified Personal Training Specialist.
Today we are going to talk about postural correction for shoulder pain
Specifically, subacromial impingement which is a common shoulder injury in sports that require overhead motions such as throwing a baseball, football, shooting a basketball and swimming for example.
A new study on this condition showed that the athlete often times also has a problem in their neck and this is what I would like to share with you today.
Two patients in this study – a collegiate swimmer and an elite high school quarterback – both had shoulder pain and weakness which was affecting their athletic performance.
But neither of them reported having any neck pain.
