NOBODY TREATS SHOULDER KNOT PAIN MORE EFFECTIVELY THAT A MEDICAL MASSAGE THERAPIST!
Now there is a successful protocol you can follow to treat it!
In my experience, the knots found at the medial borders of the scapula are among the top five most frequently mentioned soft tissue complaints. It could be on either side of your client’s body, and by referring all over it mimics many other complaints in the shoulders, neck, lats, etc. I work on this specific condition on a daily basis and it drives my client’s crazy. It’s that chronic low grade pain, day in and day out for months and sometimes years that wears them down. The only modality I have ever seen effective against trigger points in the rhomboids is medical massage. It’s what separates us from all the other modalities.
Soft tissue complaints require a soft tissue solution and we are soft tissue experts!
During any given year, a handful of my clients will check themselves into the local emergency room thinking that they might be experiencing a serious cardio issue. They can’t take a deep breath without pain or lift their arm up, and they invariably start thinking it’s something big. After a thorough medical examination, they are routinely told that they have a pinched nerve or a trigger point firing in their scapular region and are prescribed either an anti-inflammatory, a pain killer, or sent for physical or massage therapy.
Join massage pioneer Larry Heisler in this all day, hands-on workshop that specifically addresses inter-scapular trigger points. Larry will take you through all the aspects of his dramatically effective approach exploring causes, contributing factors, contraindications and long-term strategies.
This class will help you address your client’s inter-scapular pain, and the protocol you are going to learn will give you the experience and insight you need! You will have the clinical tools to address this soft tissue complaint effectively and it will be great for your business!
