Shoulder Pain Causes

There are a lot of things that can cause pain in your shoulder. It may be an issue with the shoulder itself, or it could be referred pain from another location, such as the spine or neck. Common shoulder conditions include bursitis, frozen shoulder, rotator cuff injuries, dislocations, and more. These can come from sports, aging, improper workouts, and other factors. Discovering what’s causing the discomfort is the first step in making a treatment plan that will help reduce the pain and make it easier for you to move around again.

How Our Chiropractor Treats Shoulder Pain

Our chiropractor will perform a physical exam when you first visit us. Our goal is to find the cause of your pain and any underlying conditions. Treating pain in the shoulder should always be done based on where the pain is really coming from and what’s actually causing it. The shoulder pain may be from damage in the joint, but could also be coming from problems with the neck being out of alignment. By having our chiropractor thoroughly examine the area and determine the cause of the problem, it’s easier for you to get the help you’re looking for and focus on the right kind of treatment for the future.

After a diagnosis, our chiropractor will make an individualized treatment plan for you. With a chiropractic adjustment, our chiropractor can realign the body and alleviate tension or pressure on the shoulder. A properly aligned spine is also important in overall wellness. Our chiropractor can also give you corrective exercises. Stretching and strengthening the shoulder will alleviate pain, improve your range of motion, and help prevent future injuries or recurring pain.
