Shoulder Pain


How it feels

Posture based shoulder pain is associated with the muscles and ligaments that attach the shoulder girdle (pectoral girdle) to the body  rather than pain of the shoulder joint itself.   If you experience restricted motion of the arm or pain in the shoulder joint,  you may want to look up "rotator cuff".  The pain we are referring to here is most often muscle pain - muscles that cramp up from overuse.  The pain is usually felt in the upper back around the inside and upper margin of the shoulder blade or on top of the shoulder in the muscles used to lift the shoulder girdle.

Common Causes   •   •   •   •   •   •   •   •   •   •   •   •   •

A faulty postural foundation (your feet) will distort your posture in both the side and frontal planes.  From the side you will have a forward leaning posture.  Your shoulders are  shifted forward often causing  protruding shoulder blades.  In this position, your shoulders will have less range of motion.  A distorted postural foundation also causes your hips to become uneven (one hip higher than the other) resulting in the opposite shoulder hiking up, causing constant muscle contraction and pain.  Combine this postural dysfunction with activities like working at a computer using a mouse and you have the perfect recipe for shoulder  and neck pain.


Computer work often creates a postural imbalance that can  tense up the shoulder muscles. 

How to eliminate the pain

Hyperpronation causes a functional leg length discrepancy and major postural distortions similar to that caused by a physical short leg.  Correcting the postural foundation will correct your posture, but be advised that complete resolution may take time.  Years or decades old postural distortions will not resolve overnight.  The assistance of a knowledgeable  therapist is recommended.

If you hyperpronate, your arches drop from non-weight bearing (sitting with your feet on the ground) to weight bearing (standing).  When your arches drop, your ankles roll in and your heels lean in (evert) as illustrated in the picture.  Even a small amount of hyperpronation can cause shoulder pain.

The Solution - Posture Control Insoles®

Posture Control Insoles® do something no other orthotics can do:  Posture Control Insoles® are the only foot orthotics that naturally reduce hyperpronation by using your own muscles. Instead of weakening your feet with arch supports, you build strength through natural motion.

Even if you feel like your ankles are weak or lean out (supinate), chances are that your feet hyperpronate once your heels lift off the ground.  Posture Control Insoles® will naturally restore your foot function and posture by giving your feet - and your brain - a true read of the ground so your muscles can keep your feet and body balanced.  That's why Posture Control Insoles® work for so many different pain symptoms including shoulder pain.

The insoles are guaranteed to work for you.  Trim and wear them for 90 days.  If they do not relieve your symptoms to your satisfaction, you may return them for a full refund including shipping and handling charges.  You can also call us - We'll be glad to help you troubleshoot.
