Shoulder Pain

Shoulder discomfort can significantly disrupt your daily life, particularly if you're experiencing a dull ache, tingling sensations, or sharp pain radiating down your arm. Unfortunately, shoulder pain is a prevalent issue with various underlying causes. It's a condition that warrants prompt attention to alleviate discomfort and restore function, making a visit to a chiropractor advisable.

Common Causes of Shoulder Pain:

  • Frozen Shoulder: Also known as adhesive capsulitis, this condition occurs when the connective tissue around the shoulder joint thickens and tightens, often following an injury that restricts shoulder movement.
  • Dislocated Shoulder: This injury, common in sports, occurs when the humerus dislocates from the glenoid cavity, causing initial pain and potential nerve numbness, with a risk of recurrent dislocation.
  • Pinched Nerve: Mechanical issues in the shoulder joint can lead to impinged or pinched nerves, resulting in numbness, pain, and tingling sensations in the shoulder, arms, and hands.
  • Rotator Cuff Injury: Among the most frequent shoulder issues, this injury may develop gradually due to muscle deterioration or suddenly due to trauma.
  • Arthritis: Whether osteoarthritis from wear and tear or rheumatoid arthritis from an autoimmune disorder, arthritis can cause pain and inflammation in the shoulders, limiting mobility.
  • Shoulder Bursitis: Inflammation or irritation of the fluid-filled capsule in the shoulder can cause severe pain, making shoulder movement difficult.
  • Tendonitis: Repetitive shoulder movements and strain can lead to irritation and inflammation of rotator cuff or bicep tendons, resulting in significant pain and slow healing.

Seeking Chiropractic Care for Shoulder Pain:

Consulting a chiropractor for shoulder pain is absolutely recommended. Chiropractic treatment can effectively alleviate shoulder pain, as well as address related issues in the back and neck. Shoulder pain often involves irritation of nerves, muscles, ligaments, and tendons, all of which can be addressed through chiropractic care.

Chiropractic treatment offers tailored, natural approaches focusing on the individual's needs. After conducting pain assessments, physical evaluations, and possibly imaging tests to identify the root cause, a chiropractor will design a personalized treatment plan. This plan may include chiropractic massage therapy, rehabilitative exercises/stretches, and adjustments targeting the underlying cause of shoulder pain, facilitating efficient healing and recovery.
