During the neck portion of the class I just taught one of the students asked me to assess her partner’s right shoulder. It had an odd feeling to it. His shoulder was sitting inferior. Movement in the shoulder felt thick but not weak. His shoulder muscles did not feel tight though. I had felt this before in clients who had had strokes.
Just as I thought that he told us he had had several strokes that effected his right side. I explained to his partner what we would do with SMRT as I moved his right shoulder inferior and his right occiput superior. I held this position static for about 40 seconds before releasing and reassessing. The movement in his right shoulder was dramatically different. About an hour later he said to me, “My shoulder feels so different, more alive. I thought it was fine, but it is so much better than it was. Thank you.”
