The BEST Approach for Shoulder Treatment

Finally: A Shoulder Treatment at John Lathrop Physical Therapy that is Helping People Find Permanent Relief and Get Their Lives Back Faster Than Ever Before…

  • Trying to avoid a Rotator Cuff or Shoulder Surgery?

  • Tired of relying on injections or pain killers to mask the nagging ache and pain in your shoulder?

  • Looking for a natural treatment that addresses the CAUSE of your shoulder problem?

If you’ve answered YES to any of the above – then read on to learn more about the New Shoulder Treatment Program at John Lathrop Physical Therapy…

  • Have you had shoulder pain in the past 30 days?

  • Do you have problems reaching behind your back? Or reaching up overhead onto a high shelf?

  • Does your arm ever feel “weak”…like you’re going to drop something (like a gallon of water or milk)…because of pain in your shoulder?

  • Do you sleep on your side or stomach…with your arm under the pillow?

If you are suffering with shoulder pain, then I want to share some valuable information with you…

At John Lathrop Physical Therapy, we help a lot of people with shoulder pain…

And here are a few of the questions I hear the most:

1) “What’s the #1 Single Most Common Cause of Pain in My Shoulder?”

The shoulder has more motion than any other joint in the body.

And the more something can move…usually, the less stable it is…

In the shoulder, you have 4 muscles that help keep the joint stable…

Do you know what those 4 muscles are called?

That’s right…the Rotator Cuff.

The Rotator Cuff is a group of 4 muscles that help stabilize the shoulder…

For many people 35 years of age and older, one of the muscles can be pinched…

(The big, fancy Physical Therapy name for it is “Rotator Cuff Impingement”)

2) “I have Shoulder Pain; How do I know I have a Rotator Cuff Impingement?”

There’s a quick, simple test you can do right now to see if you have “Impingement.”

  1. With your right arm, reach behind your back…and up as far as you can.

  2. Relax your right arm.

  3. Then repeat with your left arm to compare.

If this causes you pain in the shoulder you’re having trouble with…then there’s a good chance you may have “Impingement.”

At John Lathrop Physical Therapy, we specialize in helping people with Rotator Cuff Impingement.

“For two months straight, I couldn’t reach up over my head or reach behind my back without stabbing shoulder pain. After my first treatment with Johnny, my shoulder motion tremendously improved. My only regret is that I didn’t get it treated sooner.” -Matthew Kelly

3) “What if I don’t Do Anything About My Shoulder?”

Unfortunately, over time…if left untreated…the condition gets worse after Impingement. Most people experience “fraying” of the Rotator Cuff…then eventually a Rotator Cuff Tear which usually requires surgery.

Many people just “let it go”…but it’s much easier if you handle it now and avoid the pain.

Hope this helps you,

Johnny Lathrop
