Good health state, Practising Power lifting sport almost every day, compete at the national level. Frequent injury, primary of the overuse nature.

Observation/ palpation: oedema at the top of right shoulder, hot to tough, tender to palpation.
Dynamic: difficulty in bringing the arm up and extending backwards.

  1. 1st treatment –local area scanning and focusing. Flex array on the neck zone; finishing up with dynamic treatment by bringing the arm up (do not treat extending backwards very acute injury). Resulted in a complete pain relief.
