ADVANCED SHOULDER AND HEEL PAIN RELIEF CENTRE
Regrettably, thousands of people with shoulder and heel pain have unsuccessfully tried some sort of treatment which was found in today’s market that had no independent scientific evidence to back up any of the claims that actually relieved you of your pain and discomfort. This isn’t to suggest that these treatments don’t temporarily help reduce pain, but the absence of pain does not mean an injury has fully healed. In fact, one of the many reasons people experience chronic pain is because they return to activity prematurely and re-injure themselves. To use an analogy, it’s like assuming that once you see ice on a lake in the winter this means it’s safe to walk on it. Every year people fall through thin ice because they assumed it was safe to do so (premature).
We Fix Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain includes any pain that arises in or around your shoulder. Shoulder pain may originate in the joint itself, or from any of the many surrounding muscles, ligaments or tendons. Shoulder pain usually worsens with activities or movement of your arm or shoulder.
Certain diseases and conditions affecting structures in your chest or abdomen, such as heart disease or gallbladder disease, also may cause shoulder pain. Shoulder pain that arises from some other structure is called “referred pain.” Referred shoulder pain usually doesn’t worsen when you move your shoulder.
We Fix Heel Pain
Heel pain is most often caused by plantar fasciitis, a condition that is sometimes also called heel spur syndrome when a spur is present. Heel pain may also be due to other causes, such as a stress fracture, tendonitis, arthritis, nerve irritation, or, rarely, a cyst. Because there are several potential causes, it is important to have heel pain properly diagnosed. A foot and ankle surgeon is able to distinguish between all the possibilities and determine the underlying source of your heel pain.
