Shoulder Pain Causes
There are so many ways to injure your shoulder—a sports injury, car accident injury, or even sleeping on it awkwardly. Osteoarthritis can also strike. All these things can strain, sprain and otherwise cause shoulder pain and injury. Chiropractor Dr. Sas provides treatment for most shoulder-pain issues, including:
Frozen shoulder—Stiffness and pain can immobilize your shoulder—hence the name “frozen shoulder.” Chronic inflammation or overuse injury are common causes of frozen shoulder, and both respond well to chiropractic care.
Rotator cuff injury—The five major tendons that stabilize your shoulder can suffer injury through auto accidents, sports injuries, etc. Sprains, strains and tears to shoulder ligaments and muscles are also common; they can cause neck, upper back, chest and upper arm pain.
Nerve impingement—Spinal misalignments often pinch nerves that lead to shoulder pain, numbness, tingling and weakness. This type of shoulder pain responds extremely well to chiropractic adjustments for pain relief.
Chiropractic Care for Shoulder Pain Relief and Injury Treatment
Chiropractic care is an excellent treatment for musculoskeletal pain and injury like frozen shoulder, rotator cuff injuries and other shoulder pain conditions. After a thorough exam and medical history, your chiropractor can gently correct spinal misalignments pinching nerves and causing imbalance and inflammation in the shoulder. This helps stabilize the shoulder and all its connective tissues, allowing it to heal and achieve pain relief. Dr. Sas will also show you therapeutic exercises that will continue the healing and wellness process at home so you can resume normal activities with a healthy shoulder.
