Default Any successes with first rib mobilization Or non surgical approach?

Hi I was diagnosed with the yips 8 years ago with throwing a baseball. I could throw long distance but anything short distance would be very problematic. Ive had two shoulder surgeries since then, one to repair a torn labrum and bicep tendon, another a year and a half later to scope out shoulder.

I haven't been able to throw anything above low intent since. Ive had my shoulder severaly sublux a handful of times whenever I would try and push it. Despite passing EMG tests and traditional tos testing my theory is it's a nerve issue.

I had a pt visually examine my shoulder and he noticed that my rotator cuff muscles were 70% the size of my non dominant side. This was last year, almost three years after surgery.

From my research I've found that there's a lot of people who pass the EMG tests and still diagnosed with TOS. I believe that is through some sort of process of elimination like my situation.

My question is has there been any success with first rib mobilization or non surgical approach?

Accumulated injuries acquired in younger years really show up in middle age..
internal scar tissue/ adhesions, and possible posture changes restrictions..

I would not jump into surgery without a work up by a well known TOS surgeon..
But i would would look into less invasive options first with expert PT , chiropractors, body-workers..

things to look into... info in our sticky threads..
gentle stretching to release adhesions
Trigger points
IFC stim
low level laser
