Shoulder Replacement

Shoulder Pain Can Grind You Down

If you are living with shoulder pain you likely have trouble with simple tasks like lifting a gallon of milk, combing your hair, reaching your back pocket or fixing your bra strap.

But the one thing that is probably wearing you out the most is the loss of sleep.

“I don’t sleep at night. It’s like someone is stabbing me with a hot knife and twisting it into my shoulder.”

If you or someone you love has thought something like this recently, you are not alone.

9 out of 10  people with serious shoulder problems have pain that prevents them from sleeping through the night.

The fact is that serious shoulder problems like arthritis, rotator cuff tears, tendinitis and frozen shoulder can often keep you up at night and ruin your quality life.

The consequences of losing sleep at night and the impact to your health can be disastrous. They include:

  • loss of focus
  • chronic fatigue
  • mood swings
  • increased stress
  • metabolic disturbances

Imagine for a minute that you are a long haul trucker and you are so fatigued from shoulder pain keeping you up at night, that you are having trouble focusing on the road.

Imagine that you are a grandmother who wants to be able to hold her newborn grandchild, but are afraid that your arm might “give out” from pain at any moment.

It doesn’t have to be this way. There are many safe and proven methods that can effectively eliminate shoulder pain and allow you to sleep comfortably again.

I use them every day in my practice to help people restore their shoulder to good health and sleep better.
