Let's get you back to being active again.
What's Causing Your Shoulder Pain?
Shoulder pain can occur for many reasons. Our first goal is to understand what is causing your pain. Through an exam and diagnostic tools, such as x-rays, we'll work to determine what is occurring. This may be due to conditions such as:
Bursitis: The bursae are fluid-filled compartments within the shoulder. They work to reduce the friction present when moving the joint. Inflammation can occur here, causing bursitis.
Tendinitis: The tendon in the shoulder is a band of tissue that connects the muscle to the bone. It is common for this tendon to wear down over time, often from overuse. This causes pain and is a common cause of pain in those who perform repetitive exercises.
Arthritis: Arthritis can occur in various forms within the shoulder. This is often a wear and tear arthritic condition that causes pain, stiffness, and swelling.
These are just a few of the causes of shoulder pain. Others include instability, impingement, tendon tears, and even fracture. In all cases, you should not ignore the presence of pain. Athletes often experience shoulder pain from trauma, repetitive use, or degenerative conditions.
Treatment for Shoulder Pain from Your Chiropractor
When you visit your chiropractor, we'll work with you to create a treatment plan to address the cause of your shoulder pain. Our treatment can range from solutions such as:
- Chiropractic adjustments to properly align the joint are a common first step in providing you with treatment and pain relief. This reduces pressure on the nerves, improving inflammation.
- Massage therapy may be recommended for those suffering from inflammation. We use this treatment option to help stimulate healing in the joint itself.
- We may recommend nutritional counseling or improvement to your lifestyle. For example, for those who are involved in sports, it is important to address how you are moving your limbs to ensure this is not worsening your condition and pain.
We highly recommend coming in to speak to us about the shoulder pain you have. After understanding the cause and underlying condition, we'll make recommendations to help you treat the cause. We don't focus on pain medications or surgery, but rather a treatment for the underlying cause of your pain. This can help you to gain mobility again.
