Man holding shoulderPeople often resort to Chiropractors to receive treatment for back or neck pain.

What Causes Shoulder Pain?

There are a variety of reasons you may be experiencing shoulder issues. For starters, the shoulder joint has the greatest range of motion compared to all other body parts! This reason alone gives us insight into why shoulder problems are likely to occur. In addition, shoulders have a small contact zone with the joint. These two main points show why shoulders are more injury prone. Finally, sports activities, work related activities, and falls and accidents are the most common causes of shoulder problems.

Chiropractic care can safely, effectively, and naturally treat and prevent pain and discomfort in your shoulder and the following shoulder-related issues:

  • Rotator Cuff Tendonitis, Degeneration, and Tears

How Chiropractic Care Relieves Shoulder Pain?

Initially we perform tests to know the state of the affected area. Following testing, we perform specific adjustments to reinforce that same area. By performing these precise adjustments, we help to relieve the pressure on pinched nerves. We also correctly realign the vertebrae, thus improving the movement of the affected area.

Our Chiropractic services are useful as a measure of both treatment and prevention of pain, and overall pain at any part of the body.

Receiving chiropractic adjustments as a measure of treatment brings many benefits including returning the shoulder to its correct position, reducing chronic pain, healing shoulder tears, sprains and strains, and increasing shoulder flexibility.

Shoulder issues can be avoided with routine adjustments to eliminate the problems from happening in the first place. Regular Chiropractic Adjustments from our Chiropractor can realign the shoulder and relieve pressure on the nerves surrounding the shoulder area. For that reason, it’s highly recommended to receive adjustments on a regular basis, in order to correct body dysfunctions before it starts causing pain.
