When there is a traumatic injury to the shoulder, scar tissue is formed to repair and fortify. Unfortunately, the tissues have a tendency to heal short, and because the natural tendency for the shoulder to roll forward, shoulder extension becomes limited, and the entire shoulder complex, (including the scapula or “wing bone”, loses flexibility. When motion is limited like this, the muscles constrict. The body responds to these improper biomechanics by sending in scar tissue to the muscular attachments, and calcium to fortify the bones, resulting in arthritis. The shoulder is passively extended by the Tru-Align, encouraging the joints of the shoulder to limber and re-align. Oftentimes, pain in the shoulder is actually caused by pressure on a nerve coming from the neck or upper back. The Tru-Align alleviates pinched nerves by decompressing and realigning the spine.
