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.
