Read on to learn more about how we can help with your shoulder pain.
There are a number of conditions and injuries that are known to cause shoulder pain. As a matter of fact, the cause of shoulder pain does not even need to be located in the shoulder itself. Sometimes, problems in other areas of the body – such as the cervical or thoracic spine – can create pain that radiates to the shoulder. This is called referred pain.
In instances where the pain in your shoulder is, in fact, caused by a problem that is located within the shoulder itself, that problem is most commonly an inflammatory condition. These conditions include forms of arthritis, rheumatism, tendonitis, and bursae. Bursae is an inflammation of the small sac of fluid that cushions the structures of the shoulder – the bursa. This inflammation puts pressure on the nerves in that area and causes pain.
Furthermore, there are quite a few non-inflammatory conditions that may cause shoulder pain. Trauma caused by injury, sprains, strains, rotator cuff injury, and adhesive capsulitis – also known as frozen shoulder – fall into this category.
A trained chiropractor can help to alleviate shoulder pain by treating the cause directly. To that end, there are more than 150 proven chiropractic techniques available for use in a holistic non-invasive treatment regimen. By utilizing these techniques, we strive to return your body to a state of balance that will allow it to heal itself as it is designed to do. Thus, pain is reduced, the range of motion is restored, and stiffness is lessened.
In order to evaluate each individual condition, our chiropractic staff will conduct a full examination. This will include taking a history, examining the area, and running any additional imaging tests to rule out other causes. Then – and only then – a treatment regimen will be developed and healing and wellness can truly begin.
Each person is unique and requires a different course of treatment that utilizes different techniques to help them heal. Among the most commonly used for shoulder pain are spinal decompression therapy, manual spinal manipulation, active release techniques, acupuncture, trigger point therapy, nervous system subluxation, and therapeutic massage.
