ROTATORELIEVER News Coverage

Doctor invents device after suffering his own pain.

A local family medicine doctor is marketing a solution to stop shoulder pain.  ROTATORELIEVER

Dr. Michael Carroll, who in 2005 co-founded Creekside Clinic in Traverse City, suffered from a common complaint — shoulder pain caused by problems with his rotator cuff. The doctor had trouble sleeping because of the pain. One sleepless night about six years ago, he took his arm, held it down and noticed it felt better.

"It was like my 'Eureka' moment," Carroll said.

He fashioned a makeshift traction device out of bandages to keep his shoulder and arm in the position. Within days of using the system, Carroll said his pain practically vanished.

Rick,
Yes. Our initial research results were very positive and we are funding our second round of research. It works well and is easy to use.

Eric,
I am interested in the scapulothoracic dyskinesis to which you refer. I think creating room between the humeral head and the coracoacromial ligament is critical. I think the best way is to strengthen the infraspinatus and subscapularis and teres minor.

Rick,
We have great research and it is and effective long term treatment. We are breaking the nightly injury cycle induced by sleep position. Thanks for the inquiry.

Lisa,
I wish I did have a quick fix on this. In my experience you really have to work with a physical therapist to loosen up the IT band. Good luck.
