The shoulder is the most complex joint in the body which allows it to perform many things in many positions.

An injury, overuse or a surgery from the past can leave a nagging pain that affects the little things in life such as putting on a shirt, lifting your child, doing a push up or driving.

The shoulder is composed of 5 muscles for the rotator cuff that move and stabilize the shoulder in many directions and positions. If one of these muscles is injured or weak, the whole shoulder may be affected. We cannot forget the shoulder blade and the spine as they also play a vital role in the workings of the shoulder. And we must not forget about the postural muscles as they dictate the position of the shoulder joint when we are moving and when we are still.

At Vertical Wall, we are able to determine what is hindering your shoulder movements so that we may get you back to your desired activities.
