We all need to use our arms… each and every day. Whether for putting clothes on, pitching in the MLB, or carrying a baby, shoulder pain effects daily life, sleep, and more. It is important to understand the mechanics of this complicated joint- and consider the health of the neck, back, spine, ribs, chest muscles, back muscles, arm and posture when properly treating and going through the differential diagnosis process.
