Chiropractic Care and Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain is incredibly common and has a high chance of reoccurrence. Unfortunately, even though shoulder pain is common, it's still very difficult to overcome the pain and be able to complete day to day activities from shoulder pain.
You will need professional help to overcome and treat shoulder pain. At Sarasota Chiropractic and Physical Therapy, our staff are here to help residents of Sarasota, FL, find relief from shoulder pain.
What Causes Shoulder Pain?
Shoulder pain has a variety of causes. The shoulder is one of the biggest joints in the body, and we use it every single day to complete day to day activities. Over time, this can cause wear and tear to the shoulder joint, especially in people with arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Other causes of shoulder pain may include:
- Rotator cuff tears and injuries
- Tendon inflammation of the shoulder
- Bursitis, or inflammation of the joint fluid sac
- Tendon tears
- Dislocated shoulder
If you have been involved in a car accident, another injury, are an athlete, or work in physical labor that involves constant shoulder movement, this can put you at risk of developing shoulder pain. Those of older age are also at risk due to the increase of arthritis and wear and tear.
How Can a Chiropractor Help?
Shoulder pain can also radiate from other parts of the body, such as the upper back. A chiropractor will be able to determine the root cause of your pain in order to ensure it does not return. They can do so through physical exams, taking a detailed medical history, and conducting imaging tests such as x-rays.
This information will be used to provide a treatment plan, which can include:
- Spinal and manual adjustments, which can help realign the spine and other extremities such as the shoulder
- Muscle stretches around the shoulder to help reduce inflammation and pain
- Strengthening exercises to help restore mobility, flexibility, and strength in injured shoulder muscles
- Trigger point therapy to target specific areas of pain
Our chiropractor will determine how long each chiropractor's treatment session will be, and how many you will need to undergo.
