If you have shoulder pain, you are not alone. Millions of people all over the world suffer from this type of painful condition, and it has a variety of causes. Among the most common causes of shoulder pain are arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, frozen shoulder, pulled muscles, torn rotator cuff muscles, and pulled ligaments. Once in a while, a painful shoulder can be caused by dislocation, but you will usually know this right away unless it is a very mild dislocation. A painful shoulder may also be due to referred pain from another location, such as neck pain, back pain, elbow and wrist pain, and even ear ache.
You will only discover the cause of the shoulder pain by getting an exam, which we are happy to do for you. We have all the latest, highest technology diagnostic equipment at our office, and can determine the cause of the painful shoulder in a gentle, non-invasive way. The cause of the painful shoulder will determine the type of treatment your chiropractor will determine is best for healing you.
Chiropractic medicine is actually an excellent way for healing a painful shoulder. With the correct spinal adjustments, we can eliminate causes of referred pain to the shoulder. Using manual therapy techniques, we can break up scar tissue in frozen shoulder and arthritis that are causing pain and limiting your shoulder range of motion. Physical therapy modalities and strengthening exercises can improve function, as well as relieve the inflammation that causes pain in such things as bursitis, arthritis, pulled muscles, tendonitis, and other conditions where inflammation is involved.
With individualized chiropractic care, using the appropriate methods recommended for the particular cause of the shoulder pain you are experiencing, you can get relief and resolution from that painful condition. By going after the cause of your painful shoulder, instead of the symptoms, we bring about true healing and a permanent relief from the pain that few other treatment providers can give you. Best of all, chiropractic care is gentle, painless, available to everyone, and appropriate for anyone of any age, with plenty of scientific studies backing up its effectiveness.
