The serratus anterior muscle is THE core muscle of the shoulder and arm. It lifts and supports the shoulder blade and arm from below and underneath. This muscle is key to good posture.
During the day at work, school, and chores and sports, to remind the serratus anterior to contract and help you have good posture and reduce pain, here is a video:

Have you ever been treated by a physical therapist, chiropractor and massage therapist at the same time for lower or upper back pain, or neck pain?
A) work together as a team and respect one another?
B) did you feel as if you were betraying one health professional if you also saw a different one?
If it was “B” you probably felt like you were stuck in the middle between your different care providers. You are not sure if their treatments are working together or at cross purposes.
Welcome to a fresh approach, an approach where the client is the center and the providers work together for your benefit. If you are receiving chiropractic and massage therapy, we will work with your other care to providers to coordinate care and make sure treatments work together.
We work with a number of local chiropractors to assist you in receiving an exercise program which will support your other treatments. We cross refer back and forth. We also do this with massage therapists.
In short, if you add PT rehabilitation with your chiropractic and massage, your adjustments may be smoother and easier. PT will help you hold and progress the gains you make in chiropractic and massage therapy.
