Do you think you have a frozen shoulder? We can help!
pritchettephysicaltherapy.com Frozen shoulder, or adhesive capsulitis, is the term given to the condition that is characterized by pain and a loss of shoulder range of motion.
This is what Thomas Myers (a leader in the world of fascia), has termed the Spiral Line. It is a continuous line of fascial tension that wraps around the body in 2 opposing helices 🧬 and “helps to maintain balance across all planes”.
With this visual we can better understand how tension on one side of the body can actually create an effect on the other side of the body.
Imagine if there were a restriction in the area that crosses over the front of the right hip. Not only could it create issues at the site of restriction, but also anywhere along either of the 2 spiral lines, AND, these lines are not isolated, they interact with other fascial lines.
Our body truly is a web of interconnections and needs to be approached as a whole rather than individual parts.
Contact Pritchette Physical Therapy to book a session with me and learn more about keeping your body in balance so you can do you better!

[11/17/20] Finishing up our shoulder stability series, we've talked about the importance of dynamic stability of the shoulder. This ability of the shoulder muscles to co- contract in response to the demands imposed upon it is essential to pain- free function and optimal mechanics. This is not just true of athletes, but for everyone! In the videos below you see the shoulder trying to stabilize on a series of unstable surfaces. Great for shoulder stability and for the core as well! And that's important in function, right? No functional activity occurs in isolation- it requires a series of muscles throughout the body to work together at the same time! #motionisthebestlotion #pritchettephysicaltherapy #Foothills #clubwest #pritchettefoothills #sportsrehabilitation #shoulderrehabilitation
How can your fascia impede or improve your athletic performance? #fascialstretctherapy #athletictraining #physicaltherapy #sportsperformance
pritchettephysicaltherapy.com Fascia is made up of fluid-filled collagen strands that form a 3 dimensional net that permeates every part of our body from our skin to our bones, head to our toes, and performs many different functions. One of the things fascia does for us is allows our tissues to slip and move smoothly

[11/04/20] For throwing athletes, the eccentric role of the rotator cuff as a decelerator of the arm is vital to sound mechanics. With poor rotator cuff firing/ timing, athletes are at higher risk for developing tendinitis, internal impingement, or labral tears. Sam has been working hard on improving the dynamic stability and eccentric control of his throwing arm to get back on the mound! #pritchettephysicaltherapy #foothills #pritchettefoothills #clubwest #motionisthebestlotion #sportsrehabilitation

Thought for today: We are really good about visiting our dentists and primary care physicians for check-ups and physicals, why isn't physical therapy the same? Not all physical therapy has to be reactive, or after an injury. There is GREAT benefit to touching base with a physical therapist annually or semi-annually for a movement screen to identify any joints or movement patterns that may be dysfunctional and put you at risk for injury. Wouldn't it be great to address it before it becomes a problem? 😀The therapists at Pritchette Physical Therapy have the tools to evaluate and screen movement patterns and identify areas of dysfunction and give you the tools you need to correct it! #pritchettephysicaltherapy #motionisthebestlotion #movementanalysis #prehabilitation

Is your shoulder unstable? Physical therapy can help!
pritchette.squarespace.com The shoulder joint is the most mobile joint in the body. This makes sense because we need to be able to reach overhead, reach in front of our bodies, reach behind our heads and reach behind our backs as part of our everyday function. Because it needs to be able to move in so many directions, the sho
Scapular mobilization to improve scapular mobility in shoulder pain. With use of our arms, the shoulder blade has to move to respond to the forces placed upon it. If the scapula loses its ability to move in any plane of motion, shoulder pain and dysfunction can occur. Mobilization of the scapula by your therapist followed by some movement re- education can restore motor patterns and decrease pain! #pritchettephysicaltherapy #foothills #shoulderrehabilitation #motionisthebestlotion

Rhythmic stabilization is a technique used to improve the dynamic stability of a joint (in this case, the shoulder). The cue to my client is to try to keep her shoulder as still as possible while I provide perturbations at different positions along her arm. This forces her to contract different muscle groups within the shoulder. I can progress this activity by changing the position of her arm based on my desired result, changing the amount of force I use, or the speed in which I do it. This is a powerful drill used in the rehabilitation of many shoulder conditions! Questions? Call me! 480 371 1555 #pritchettephysicaltherapy #foothills #shoulderrehabilitation
