Adam called Bodyreform following shoulder pain he sustained from bench press at the gym. Unfortunately, Adam shoulder dislocated but relocated into place very quickly by itself.
On initial assessment, Adam presented with moderate instability at his shoulder joint, shoulder pain, shoulder weakness and a possible rotator cuff tear. His shoulder blade muscles were not working in the correct timing.
Treatment consisted of muscle strengthening to ensure his shoulder joint stayed in the socket well, which reduced his painful shoulder.
Rehabilitation can takes months following a shoulder dislocation. Adam worked hard on the progressive shoulder blade and rotator cuff exercise to enable him to return to full duties at work. He needed to reduce his work duties as he found it difficult to work with his arm overhead. This lasted three months only.
