Treatment No.7 Deep muscle Treatment shoulders
At YuillBeFixed the massage therapist are trained to find out about the history of the clients shoulder, passive active and resisted tests will be done on the shoulder to establish what muscles have been torn and injured. The YuillBeFixed therapist will apply specialised crossfiber techniques to the tendons of the shoulder which is to break down collagen fibres and scar tissue that have built up over time.
When a tear or inflammation develops over time (a chronic injury) you’ll get pain that radiates into the shoulder and upper arm, worsens gradually and is sometimes worse at night and impairs sleep.
The rotator cuff is a group of muscles in the shoulder that hold the humerus (the upper arm bone) in the shoulder socket and allow arm rotation. There are four muscles in the group, and they all stabilize the humerus head into the joint of the shoulder.
Supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor and subscapularis and the two heads of Bicep Brachii all help to keep the shoulder in in tremendous condition and if scar tissue has laid down over the years these muscle can be worked on by the experienced YuillBeFixed massage therapist to bring back movement to the injured shoulder.
The first tendon to be worked on with the crossfiber technique will be the long head of the Bicep Brachii it sits near the proximal part of the clients shoulder and originates of the supraglenoid tubercle of the scapula, the tendon sits within the intertubercular groove of the humerus. The YuillBFixed therapist will work on this tendon for 10 minutes maximum.
The second tendon to be worked on with the crossfiber technique is supraspinatus which is a powerful arm abductor, its tendon inserts onto the greater tubricle of the humerus. The client will have to put his arm behind his back to allow the skilled YuillBefixed massage therapist to get to the tendon properly as it sits hidden away underneath the acromion (top lateral part of shoulder bony out crop).another 10 minutes of crossfiber work is carried out here.
The third tendon to be worked on with crossfiber technique is subscapularis which is a big medial rotator of the shoulder joint. The clients arm will be put into a position of external rotation to allow the trained YuillbeFixed therapist into the tendon which inserts lesser turbercle of the humerus, another 10 minutes of crossfiber work will be applied here.
The fourth tendons to be worked on with the crossfiber technique is teres minor which is a great lateral rotator and adductor of the shoulder joint, horizontally abducts the shoulder and extends the shoulder also.
This muscle inserts onto the greater tubercle of the humerus and because of its close location to the other one of the four rotator cuff muscles Infraspinatus can be worked on together with the crossfiber technique, this muscle is a great lateral rotator, adductor and extensor of the shoulder joint, it horizontally abducts also. This will be a maximum of 10 minutes of crossfiber work here also.
The reason for the maximum of crossfiber work being 10 minutes is because of the intensity of the work and at YuillBeFixed the massage therapists will always leave time for circulatory work to disperse any tension and remove metabolic waste products from the tendons like lactic acid. The massage therapist will give the patient a job over the next few days to ice for 10 minutes and heat the area afterwards for 10 minutes also to increase blood flow and for the healing process to take place around all the tendons that have been worked on. Further Deep muscle Treatment will not be done on the shoulder for at least one week, to allow healing time .
