Why Is My Shoulder in Pain?
Like back pain, the causes of shoulder pain are many. If you have shoulder discomfort, the cause could be:
- Bursitis, which inflames the fluid-filled sac (bursa)
- Rotator cuff tear
- Frozen shoulder
- Sprains and strains
- Shoulder dislocation
- Radicular pain
While chiropractors are popular for back and neck pain treatment, they are also effective in treating joints, including shoulder joints. So, if you have shoulder pain, schedule an appointment with our chiropractors for treatment.
How Do Chiropractors Treat Shoulder and Back Pain?
Before starting treatment, the chiropractor diagnoses your pain by analyzing your medical records and discussing your symptoms. Next, we carry out physical examinations to determine your mobility and the location of the pain. If we need further investigation, we may request x-ray images and other diagnostic tools. After a proper diagnosis, the treatment for your shoulder and back pain may involve:
Spinal manipulation: Whether you have shoulder or back pain, spinal manipulation is effective for pain management. Adjusting your spine removes subluxations that cause pain in your back, and sometimes, the pain may be radiated to your shoulders.
Stretching exercises: Specific exercises targeting your shoulders and back can reduce pain, improve mobility, and add muscle and joint resilience to prevent future injuries.
Massage therapy: Are your muscles sore? Massage therapy can help reduce tension on tight muscles, reducing pain and swelling.
