Chiropractic Care for Shoulder Pain

Chiropractic Care for Shoulder Pain

When it comes to shoulder pain, many people choose to take care of their pain themselves. They take a few days of rest and maybe also take some medicine, then wait until the pain goes away. Sometimes this works and indeed the pain resolves. But unfortunately, it’s not always the case.

Shoulder pain is a common complaint that can last for days, weeks, or in severe cases- even for months or years. And very often, the pain comes and goes but never goes away for good. This is why it is important to get proper treatment for shoulder pain. As you will learn in the following, chiropractic care can help effectively manage shoulder pain.

Finding the Underlying Cause Is the Key

If you are experiencing shoulder pain now, you need to know that finding the underlying cause can be the key to your recovery. If you have sustained a shoulder injury recently, the answer may be obvious. However, there is often an underlying issue that is perpetuating your pain symptoms.

Seeing a chiropractor may help you identify the root problem that is contributing to your pain long term. This is because chiropractors – especially chiropractors who specialize in Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) – see the body as a complex and interconnected system. They understand how underlying imbalances can contribute to other health issues (for example, shoulder pain) within the body.

When you visit a chiropractor, the first step is always the holistic assessment of the body in order to identify the cause of shoulder pain. To give you an idea about what can lead to the onset of shoulder pain, here is a short list of potential causes:

  • dislocated shoulder
  • frozen shoulder
  • rotator cuff injury
  • strains, sprains
  • weakness of shoulder muscles
  • misalignment of the shoulders or spine
  • other imbalances

Getting Treatment for Shoulder Pain

Depending on the cause and nature of your pain, your chiropractor will recommend to you one or more chiropractic treatment options to relieve your pain and treat any imbalances in your body. The recommended options may include the following:

  • temperature therapy
  • ultrasound
  • posture training
  • exercise training
  • spine/shoulder adjustments
  • massage
  • education
  • and many more

Regular visits to the chiropractor can potentially reduce pesky shoulder symptoms like pain. Plus, regular visits can even maybe improve the range of motion and increase the strength and mechanics of your shoulder. Thus, most likely, you will feel much better after each visit! Plus, getting treatment may also prevent harm to your shoulders in the future.
