Are you having trouble lifting your arms above your head? Are the kids begging you to play with them but you can't even think of picking them up? Has your gym routine been reduced to the treadmill or ab machines because it hurts to do chest day? Shoulder injuries are more than just about the dreaded rotator cuff. In fact, what may seem to be the rotator cuff is often neck or upper back issues showing up in the shoulder. What we once thought could only be managed through surgery is now being shown to get better results for less money with Physical Therapy first.
