Painful conditions about the shoulder joint are commonly associated with the forward-drooped position of the shoulder girdle. The mechanics of the shoulder girdle are such that, with the drooped position of the body as a whole, the habitual position of the shoulder is one of constant strain upon the structures which stabilize the shoulder joint. The correction of the drooped position of the body, as well as the position in which the shoulder is habitually used, should be an essential part of the treatment in disabling conditions about the shoulder.
