What do you do when your anti-inflammatories don’t take care of your shoulder pain? Often, a diagnosis such as “tendonitis” is the source of your symptoms however it is rarely the cause. So if your shoulder pain returns when going off the meds, possibly looking at muscle imbalances around your shoulder blade or your overall mid-back mobility might be the key to getting your rotator cuff tendons to be less inflamed. With my patients, I often use the analogy of brand new tires on your vehicle. If you don’t get the wheel alignment checked, you will always wear out the front left tire. Our physiotherapist, athletic therapist and sport medicine specialist can help address your alignment so you don’t wear out your front left wheel!
