Chris, a plumber of had carried a serious shoulder injury for number of years during his working life.
He had searched all different avenues to find relief and try and regain full physical ability from his shoulder.
The effects of a long term chronic physical pain brought special challenges to Chris in his working and social life. Chronic rotator cuff tear begins with a small injury, which causes inflammation of the sacks which lubricate the shoulder joint (bursitis).
With repeated injury, this may progress to inflammation of the tendon component of the rotator cuff (rotator cuff tendinitis), and eventually to a tear in the rotator cuff itself, which is associated with pain, decreased range of motion of the shoulder and arm, and resulting weakness and a withering away of the shoulder muscle. This man suffered from a neuropathology/deep somatic/nociptive pain. This had turned a memory of the pain being formed. This is was pain! Dull, aching, sickening poorly-localized pain on a daily basis.
Chris came for a Sports Massage via a present from his wife. Telling me the full story ,I told him how I could help . I told him about the “Bioneuro “Dry” Therapy System and how it works deep in the peripheral nervous system. Working in conjunction with Sports Massage we have seen powerful restoration. The shoulder area was “Ischemic” (Decreased blood supply to tissue,) we have seen steady progressive improvement circulation to this area. Pain free movement also has seen a tremendous increase. One major sign of this was recently Chris had to use a “Club Hammer”. Normally this would have caused considerable pain but no pain felt at all. My last session with this his shoulder movement was back to normal with no issues what so ever. Chris and his wife have had a passion for golf. This Easter they are going to peruse that passion with new increased vigour!.
