Cedar Rapids Shoulder Pain Assessment

Healthy shoulders have full range of motion and enough strength to perform the daily tasks that are asked of them. Limited range of motion is the #1 cause of shoulder pain. While there are many reasons as to what can cause limited flexibility and movement, muscle adhesion is one of the most common reasons why.

“If It Doesn’t Move, It Must Improve!” – Dr. William Brady

Unfortunately, adhesion is also one of the most misdiagnosed and mistreated. The good news? Our office is the only office in the state of Iowa that exclusively diagnoses muscle adhesion.

These are often complicated cases. Most patients have had their shoulder pain months or years, and failed multiple providers or therapies.

Success in these cases, begins by finding a diagnosis! The assessment of the shoulder should include range of motion and strength.

Below is a simple test you can try at-home to see how well your shoulder moves.

If you find this test to be limited, there is a good chance adhesion is to blame for the limitation and is at the root of your shoulder problem.

We fix this problem, when others have failed!

Take the test and let us know how you did!
