Hi everybody. Dr. Jodi Kinney here, your chiropractor for shoulder pain in Belmar, NJ. This is Dr. Michelle. Today, I wanna show you how I adjust and mobilize the shoulder joint.
So we’ve been talking about shoulder and shoulder problems. When I have patients that come in specifically with issues with the neck and the shoulder, this is the way that we work it out and kind of adjust it.
So, first thing first, I’m gonna have Michelle give me what’s called the little chicken wing. And I always do rotation of the shoulder forward and back, to kind of loosen up and stretch the tendons, the ligaments, the muscles around the joint area.
I can already hear popping and cracking in your shoulder. Yep. And sometimes that happens. And then what I’m gonna have Michelle do is bring the shoulder or the elbow in front. I’m gonna do a little posterior impulse in her shoulder.
So just relax this Michelle. One more. And I try to go in all sorts of directions to kind of get it more mobilized. And sometimes we actually get a little pop or a crack out of that. And then I always kind of finish off with stretching the muscles into the shoulder. You feel that? Mm hmm. Yeah.
Now if you have a tear or something, a labrum tear, rotator cuff tear, muscle tear, sometimes this doesn’t feel so good. And that is something that may be more of an orthopedic referral.
But most of my shoulder patients get a lot of relief just from mobilizing. This is any of my frozen shoulder syndrome patients or people who have overworked swimmers shoulders or shoulder issues from weight lifting or CrossFit or anything like that.
This is a good mobilization and good adjustment that you could do. So hopefully that helps.
See you soon.
