The Shoulder Fix is the industry leading, state of the art, online strength + rehabilitation program that combines cutting edge physical therapy, movement, down regulation, and strength training.
Through the leadership of Dr. Theresa Larson and her team, CFSC CFL2, The Shoulder Fix has combined best practices developed over 20 years of research, coaching, and treatment of 80,000 athletes and patients worldwide.
We created The Shoulder Fix as a movement-based platform that allows a customized approach to healing shoulder pain at its source. Our aim is to educate you on the root causes of the pain, give you a program to follow and help you live pain free forever.
You Are Not Alone
96% of musculoskeletal pain is mechanical in nature and therefore AVOIDABLE. Mechanical issues result from poor movement patterns and posture, over-exposure to sitting, and a loss of flexibility, stability, or balance. Mechanical issues refer to a breakdown in the system of movement that is innate to our health, longevity, and ability to live pain free.
The human body is comprised of unique systems that work together to allow you to move throughout your day. You’re familiar with most of these (think cardiovascular system, digestive system). Although you experience pain, there is no pain system in the human body. Pain is a response to a threat. Your body uses pain as a mechanism to avoid the threat.
Your Shoulders are Important
Nearly Every single movement your body makes involves the shoulders. Sitting down, stepping, bending, twisting, and standing all expose the shoulders to movement and forces.
Your body is designed to move in certain ways, which we at The Shoulder Fix call global movement patterns. These patterns, when done correctly, protect the major joints in the body. Because of the rigors of daily life, activity, and work setting, your body will begin to develop some bad movement habits. Rarely, however, will the pain hit right away. Your muscles and bones take the brunt of the impact from poor movement. Over time however, the muscle tissue breaks down and your shoulders become vulnerable to injury. The brain quickly recognizes this threat, sends the pain signal to your shoulders, and now you suffer from chronic shoulder pain.
