Angela has been suffering for the last several years with shoulder pain, limited range of motion and the inability to play some of the sports she loves. This stemmed from a softball injury in high school. In this video, Dr. Lavender is testing her pec minor superior division muscle for strength prior to treatment. When injuries or over use occur, the body will attempt to "shut down" the muscle to try to stop further damage. Other muscles nearby will then take on a bigger roll as the body adapts itself to the injury. This is much like a circuit breaker in your home shutting down one outlet when there is a problem or over-load.
