Do you suffer from unexplained pain in your shoulder? Maybe you’re experiencing uncomfortable tightness or pain, but you can’t pinpoint what could be causing it. No matter what, your shoulder pain is likely dragging you down, decreasing your quality of life and taking away from more important aspects of your day.
Did you know that oftentimes, shoulder pain originates from dysfunction in the thoracic spine, which runs from your neck down to the bottom of your ribcage? In order for your shoulder to maintain ultimate mobility, this area of your spine must be unconstricted.

Let’s Talk Shoulders!
As mentioned above, a good majority of shoulder pain originates from dysfunction in the thoracic spine, which must be unobstructed for your shoulder to perform as it should. Stiffness in this area can result in shoulder pain, and pain can lead to stiffness, so neither situation is preferred!
Learn About Livers
Your liver is an organ that’s about the size of a football, and it sits under your rib cage on the right side of your abdomen. It is essentially for digesting food and helping your body get rid of toxic substances.
Have you ever had your liver worked on? Believe it or not, your liver can actually create stiffness in the thoracic spine, leading to shoulder functionality issues. If you’ve been involved in a fall, car accident, experienced toxic overload, hormone imbalance or digestion issues, or anything in between, your liver may be restricted!
While many of the issues listed above are fairly common occurrences in our daily lives, visceral manipulation can help! Through visceral manipulation, our team at Invincible can get your liver feeling good and your shoulders working great again!

"My first experience with Dr. Missy was eye-opening. I scheduled the appointment because of persistent shoulder pain. After chatting she got to work, starting on my shoulder as expected, then she moved to my liver. Gentle pressure to help my liver gain better movement which would lead to better shoulder movement. Along for the ride, I just let her do her thing. After finishing with my liver she had me raise my arm above my head and I had a SIGNIFICANT better range of motion. I was hooked… and mystified. Visceral manipulation may seem a bit strange, but it works. I recommend it and Dr. Missy to everybody and anybody." ~ Emily
