50% of Americans with shoulder pain will not seek treatment.
And 56% of those with shoulder pain who don’t seek treatment will not get better after three months.
You wouldn’t be reading this if you weren’t concerned about your shoulder pain. Even if you did see a doctor, the fact that you’re still reading says that something didn’t work for you.
Concerning your options for shoulder pain, think about it:
- Physical therapists use electronic stimulation and ultrasound and strengthen weakness.
- Chiropractors adjust joints.
- Orthopedic doctors inject cortisone or perform surgery.
- Medical doctors prescribe medicine.
- Massage therapists work on muscles.
All of the different types of therapists and doctors who help a percentage of the population points to the fact that there are a wide variety of causes to back pain and a wide variety of potential solutions.
What does this mean for you, as someone with shoulder pain, to get better?
No matter how long you’ve experienced your pain and how intense the shoulder pain is?
It means that you need to take all of the puzzle pieces that make your body and your health … and put them together to zoom out from a reductionist point of view … and provide sweet-spot solutions for all of the individual problems in your body. Don’t be overwhelmed. This fact points to why you’re reading this right now.
When you do so, and you have the trusted observation of a doctor who respects all pieces of your back pain, you have the greatest potential for fixing any back pain condition.
