Shoulder Pain



The most common conditions of shoulder pain are:


Rotator Cuff Injury: This is the partial or complete tear of the tendons which are primarily responsible for shoulder joint motion.

Degenerative Arthritis: Over a period of time, wear and tear can play a major role in damaging the joints, bones, tendons, and the cartilage of your shoulder, which will produce chronic pain.

Sprain/Strain-Referred Pain:  when trauma happens, like a strong impact due to a car accident. Sometimes pain can travel to your shoulders as a result of a nerve pinch or inflamed nerve since the shoulder joint is connected to the spinal nerve in the neck.

Impingement syndrome: This is one of the most common shoulder problems as well in which the arm is rotated past the 90 degree angle, and there is limited movement due to the two bones rubbing against each other.

Bursitis and Tendinitis: When the shoulder is being over-worked or overused due to repetitive actions like reaching above your head, lifting, carrying, pulling, and pushing, this can inflame and irritate the surrounding structures including the bursa and tendons, resulting in bursitis and tendinitis. This will localize pain and decrease the shoulder’s mobility.

Chiropractic treatments can help to speed up the healing process to the injured structures. Most of these cases depend on the patient’s conditions and whether it stems from the muscle, joint, or nerves. Chiropractic care, supplemented with proper adjustments and exercise, will strengthen your muscles and ligaments and restore the full or maximum mobility of your joints.
