resources for the self-learner
Read what we like to geek out on.
The following 4 truths act as an overall guide from which we devised our strategy to help our patients prevent re-injury. Each truth is accompanied with a demonstration on how to optimize shoulder movement. It is meant for anyone with a pain-free shoulder (regardless of age) interested in preventing injury or RE-INJURY.*
In recent years there has been a growing movement towards preventive medicine. This trend is critical because preventing disease is, easier, cheaper, and more efficient than treating the symptoms after getting sick.
Most of our resources, however, are still going to treating symptoms, rather than prevention. The majority of these symptoms are the result of diseases that could have been prevented. Why is this happening? Why have we been experiencing this wave of preventable disease?
Did you know that when you twist from side to side almost all the rotation occurs in the thoracic spine? The lower spine evolved to stabilize and resist movement while the neck and upper back allows for the most rotation and movement.
Since most of us are hunched over devices, most of us have limited thoracic mobility. Chris Cooper details 5 techniques to keep the thoracic spine mobile and healthy. We use these very same techniques in collaboration with manual and other work right here in our clinic.

UPCOMING self-care Classes
Meet us at our classes. They're mostly free.
Prevent shoulder injury before it arises (or reoccurs).
Look around and you will see kids (if not yourself) curled over their phones and tablets. Our device-absorbed lives creates a shoulder position that is poorly adapted and prone to weakness, impingement, and injury. This class will show you how these posture and movement trends effect your shoulders and how you can prevent injury before it arises (or reoccurs).
In this class learn techniques based on these 4 TRUTHS to reverse the effects our digital life has on our shoulders.
Truth #1: Healthy shoulders need a strong anchor
Truth #2: Shoulders love healthy circles.
Truth #3: Most people’s shoulders lack power steering.
Truth #4: Shoulders are often in poor positions without you knowing.
Mobility care is rapidly becoming basic self-care for athletes and non-athletes alike.
From your sofa, to the kitchen table, to your workspace, more and more people are becoming concerned with the effects our sedentary lives are having on our bodies. Curled over laptops, captives to our steering wheels, pouring our attention over phones & tablets, we are now recognizing this way of comfy living is hard on our bodies.
Take your core strength and spine health to new heights.
8 out of 10 people will experience a low back injury in their lifetime and most people will wait until they are in pain before they seek care. How can we change this alarming statistic? How can we predict the health of our spine in the future? By creating it, of course.
