Modifying Activity

Activity modification is basically making sure that the activity that caused the injury to begin with is being done properly. For example, if poor posture at a keyboard or an improperly arranged workstation is what lead to a shoulder injury, it would make sense to correct the posture and re-arrange the workstation so that the injury doesn't repeat itself. A pitcher or tennis player may discover that incorrect technique was playing a role in developing their shoulder pain.

In just about any activity, there is a right way and a wrong way to do things. A very important part of addressing shoulder pain is making sure that we are using our shoulders correctly when engaging in any form of activity.
