The shoulder is the most freely moving joint, and so it is injured more easily. The key to healing shoulder pain often lies in addressing all the powerful muscles that both move and protect the joint. For example, the most powerful shoulder muscle, the latissimus (or “lats”), starts in your lumbar spine. If you have a low back pain or weakness problem, it can make your shoulder susceptible to injury (and then re-injury). Many types of shoulder pain, including the pain of rotator cuff tears, can be improved greatly by properly treating and balancing the shoulder muscles.
“When I first came here I had terrible pain in both shoulders and both elbows, as well as low back pain and a mild constant headache. The pain in my shoulders and elbows were really affecting my work as I am a heavy equipment mechanic. My left elbow and arm were almost a hindrance more than a help because could not lift much of anything. I really thought about changing occupations because the pain was getting intolerable.
I tried medicines for inflammation of the joints and tried treatments for tennis elbow. I started to wear a tight fitting elbow brace to help with the pain. Within the first 2 or 3 visits, the headache and low back pain were gone, and the right shoulder and both elbows were feeling great! My left elbow is really coming along now and I can lift and carry with it now.
I can’t say thank you enough to Dr. Eric Winder and his staff. This RST treatment is awesome! At least you should try it … Don’t live for years with pain and discomfort as I have! Don’t think, “Well, it’s just because I’m getting older” as I did. TRY IT and you will be amazed.”

“The results I have experienced have been absolutely phenomenal! … My entire range of motion in both arms has been restored and the pain is gone! Had I known the remarkable results of this method I think I would have foregone the painful prolotherapy injections and instead relied on this.”

“I came to Dr. Eric because I was having pain in my shoulder and trouble breathing when I played softball or swam. My mom took me to my pediatrician, and he said to rest my shoulder, and take it easy when I felt I couldn’t breathe. My shoulder kept hurting and my breathing did not improve. My pitching wasn’t as good, and I was not able to keep up with my teammates while swimming. I was getting frustrated because I wasn’t getting better. After coming to see Dr. Eric, and doing the exercises he told me to do, my shoulder felt so much better and my pitches got faster. I could also breathe easier and had my best times in my swim meets. Dr. Eric’s treatments didn’t hurt at all, and they made me feel better.”
