Causes of Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain is a varied issue, as the shoulder is at the center of many movements. In short, it can be injured in many different ways, including overuse injuries and injuries from auto and sports accidents. Some of the most common injuries include the following:
- Strains and sprains
- Frozen shoulder
- Rotator cuff injuries
Additionally, many people suffer from pain in the shoulder that comes from misalignment, herniated discs, or nerve compression in the neck or upper back.
Chiropractic Treatment for Shoulder Pain
While everyone’s treatment will differ according to their injury, symptoms, and contributing factors, the following are some of the most common treatment techniques used for shoulder pain.
- Adjustments: Whether your shoulder is dislocated or a misalignment in the upper body is causing your pain, adjustments, and manipulation can restore proper alignment.
- Soft tissue techniques: The muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and cartilage are all prime targets for injuries. Soft tissue techniques like ultrasound, electrical stimulation, ultrasound therapy, and therapeutic massage can relieve tension, improve blood flow and range of motion, and help tissues regenerate.
- Therapeutic exercise: No matter what injury or condition you suffer from, stretching and strengthening exercises can help relieve pain, tension, and inflammation while enhancing recovery.
