How Chiropractic Care Can Help You Relieve Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain can be a debilitating experience, causing discomfort and difficulty when it comes to day-to-day activities. It can be the result of an injury, accident (like a car accident), gym incident, or simply from lifestyle habits and posture factors over time. Even chronic tension can cause shoulder pain. Thankfully, there is help available at SpineWorks Chiropractic in London, UK. Dr. Luc Archambault specializes in utilizing the technique known as Chiropractic BioPhysics® (CBP) to help alleviate shoulder pain. Let’s take a look at four ways (plus one bonus!) that CBP can help you get some relief from your shoulder pain.

#1. Mirror Image Adjustments:

The first step of CBP is mirror image adjustments, also known as “mirror adjustments” for short. These adjustments will put your body in better alignment which will reduce stress on your joints and muscles that may have been caused by poor posture or repetitive movements that might have led to the onset of your shoulder pain. During this step, gentle manual manipulations are used to adjust the misaligned spinal segments so that they are properly aligned with each other again and put less strain on the muscles and joints of the neck and shoulders.

Inflammation is one of the main causes of shoulder pain. If not treated properly, inflammation can worsen over time leading to even more discomfort and immobility in the affected area. CBP helps reduce inflammation by releasing endorphins into your system which act as natural anti-inflammatories to reduce swelling and increase mobility around joints in the affected area.

#2. Spinal Traction:

While there are various types of traction that can be used to relieve shoulder pain, spinal traction specifically helps restore normal spine curvature using adjustable settings on a specialized table designed for this purpose. This kind of traction works by gently stretching out tight muscles in order to create space between vertebrae so they can move freely without causing any further irritation or inflammation. By doing this regularly with our specialized equipment, we can help correct any imbalances in your spine which will improve its overall function and reduce shoulder pain over time.

As mentioned previously, inflammation reduces range of motion in our joints causing stiffness and limiting mobility. CBP helps improve range of motion by increasing circulation around all joints – including those in the shoulders – allowing them to move more freely without discomfort or restriction from tightness or swelling. This increased range of motion helps restore strength back into your arm muscles as well as alleviating any soreness due to lack of movement for an extended period of time.

#3. Postural Exercises:

Once we have adjusted your spine and performed spinal traction, we may recommend postural exercises to maintain good posture while sitting or standing as well as specific exercises tailored to target any muscle imbalances that could be causing or contributing to your shoulder pain symptoms. We understand how important it is to keep all aspects of your body in balance so that they work together harmoniously; thus reducing stress on any particular area like the shoulders which often bear the brunt of poor posture patterns over time if not addressed properly with regular chiropractic care maintenance visits every few weeks for best results!

Poor posture is one of the biggest contributors to shoulder pain. Stress and strain on the shoulders can cause imbalances in how you hold your body when sitting or standing for extended periods of time. When your posture is off-balance, it puts extra tension on your muscles which can lead to chronic pain that radiates down your arms and neck. Through a series of adjustments and spinal traction, CBP realigns your spine and shoulders so that they are balanced and symmetrical once again – reducing painful symptoms in the process.

#4. Education & Lifestyle Changes:

Lastly but just as important, educating patients about their condition as well as offering advice on lifestyle changes such as relaxation techniques or ergonomic modifications at home/workplace environments is essential in helping them achieve long term relief from their shoulder pain symptoms once we’ve completed our treatment plan together! We want all our patients here at SpineWorks Chiropractic feel empowered with knowledge about how they can take care of themselves so they don’t experience flare ups again down the line – something we strive towards achieving every single day!

BONUS: Eases chronic tension!

Chronic tension is a very common cause of shoulder pain due to weak muscles caused by improper posture or poor ergonomics when using computer equipment or phones for long periods at a time throughout the day. By utilizing CBP’s special combination of spinal traction and mirror-image adjustments, Dr Archambault is able to realign joints while also restoring balance back into muscles causing chronic tension so they can relax once again without any discomfort or stiffness at all times throughout the day – making it easier for you to perform everyday tasks without having worry about painful flare ups or strains afterwards!
