What Causes Shoulder Pain?
There are several causes of shoulder pain. These causes include shoulder dislocation, pinched nerves, tendonitis, frozen shoulder, strain from overexerting the shoulder, fractures in the collar bone or upper arm, an unstable shoulder joint, and various injuries to the shoulder.
Tendonitis is where the tendon is irritated or inflamed. A tendon is similar to a thick cord and keeps the bones on muscles. Tendonitis is usually caused by doing repetitive movements in the area of pain.
Frozen shoulder is when the shoulder experiences pain and stiffness that gets so severe that the patient cannot move the shoulder. It can take years to recover from this, and sooner if you are treated quickly.
What are the Symptoms of Shoulder Pain?
Symptoms of shoulder pain include a slight ache in the area that won't go away, a feeling of burning, tingling, or stabbing pain in the shoulders, pain that feels sharp just under the shoulder blade, and pain that radiates from your neck to your shoulder blade, or to your shoulder blade and back to your neck. See a chiropractor if you experience any of these symptoms for a period of time.
How Can a Chiropractor Help?
A chiropractor can ease shoulder pain in several ways. Chiropractic treatments, therapeutic exercises, lifestyle advice, and rehabilitation exercises can all help with your should pain. Traditional chiropractic treatments involve adjusting the neck and spine so that they are realigned with each other. These adjustments can take pressure off muscles, tendons, and other soft tissue, bringing pain relief to these areas.
We offer various types of chiropractic treatments. Hands can be used to manipulate the spine and neck back into place. With the Activator Technique, a small instrument is used instead of the hands to apply pressure to the areas of pain that you are experiencing.
Chiropractic treatments and a combination of rehabilitation and therapeutic exercises, as well as lifestyle advice, can help lead you to a pain-free life. Please contact us if you have any questions about our practice and the ways that we can help treat your shoulder pain.
