Specific chiropractic techniques may relieve the pressure that is causing your shoulder pain. We’ll make adjustments that can help restore alignment, improve mobility, and relieve pain and stiffness.
We may recommend other types of treatment for relieving your shoulder pain, which may include moist heat, ice packs, massage, traction, or stretching and strengthening exercises. We’ll discuss all of these with you. We look at your overall health, focusing not only on your shoulder, but your lifestyle, including your diet and amount of daily exercise. This approach helps us determine the best treatment for your shoulder pain. To help identify the cause of your problem, we’ll discuss your symptoms, any previous injuries, your family health history, and work related physical activities.
The shoulder joint includes four tendons that hold muscle to bone; these four “rotator cuff” tendons stabilize the upper arm bone to the shoulder socket and allow a wide range of motion in the shoulder. If you are not sure of the cause of your shoulder pain, or if you don’t know the treatment recommendations for your condition, please contact us.
