What is causing the pain by my shoulder blade?

It’s probably your posture and your devices. I call is cellphonitis. It’s from looking down and holding your hands away from your body. When you type on a laptop or cell phone for long periods it causes disc compression, nerve irritation, muscle imbalances, and trigger points. The pain by the shoulder blade is usually a trigger point from using your shoulder muscles incorrectly. Long term irritation can cause atrophy, disc herniations, and even that hump on the back of your neck. Worried that your job might be causing cellphonitis? Learn how to correct the damage it is causing you. Get answers by scheduling an exam today.
