By applying Kinesiology tape within the treatment plan, you can correct a deviant shoulder position. This correction often has a positive effect on the complaints.

Common postural abnormalities are forward slumping shoulders (protraction) and hunched shoulders (elevation). Elevated shoulders are often caused by overloading, stress and tension. A one-sided, repetitive posture can also cause an elevated position of the shoulder.

In this position the levator scapulae is often overloaded and tense.

With protraction, the shoulders are positioned forward. This position deviation occurs quite directly, for example, due to an incorrect posture at the computer. Partly due to the advent of tablets, game consoles and smartphones, young people in particular develop a protraction position. Because of this position, subacromial complaints in the shoulder region, such as impingement complaints, can also gradually develop. Painful complaints caused by tissue (bone, muscle, tendon, bursa, capsula, etc.) in the shoulder become trapped.
