Shoulder Pain Relief
Many people only think of chiropractors for neck and back pain, but they actually treat issues throughout the musculoskeletal system – including the shoulder. Below are just a few ways that our team at Corrective Chiropractic can help relieve your shoulder pain. If you are experiencing shoulder pain and live in or around London, ON, contact us today to schedule a consultation with one of our chiropractors.
Understanding Shoulder Pain
Before diving into the methods of shoulder pain relief, it’s vital to understand what might be causing that pain. Your shoulder is full of muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, nerves, and more. All of these components can be impacted by everything from daily tasks to falls and car accidents. Something as seemingly benign as hitting your arm on a door can have a severe impact – often without you noticing. While the causes can vary, most cases of shoulder pain fit into one of the following categories:
- Frozen shoulder
- Strains or sprains
- Rotator cuff tear
Additionally, the root of your shoulder pain might not be in the shoulder but rather in the surrounding soft tissue or nerves from the neck. Our chiropractor can physically assess your upper body to detect and address any issues or obtain the necessary x-rays to analyze the shoulder directly. From there, one or more of the following treatment methods will be utilized.
Adjustments aren’t just for the back and neck. Your chiropractor can adjust each of your extremities, too. Putting your shoulder back into proper alignment can help with dislocations, tension and inflammation, nerve compression, and range of motion – all through this safe and natural method.
Corrective Exercises and Lifestyle Guidance
Chiropractic care is effective at digging into the root cause of the pain and treating it, which requires more than care in the office. Every move you make throughout your day, what you choose to eat, and more can all contribute to pain and injuries.
Your chiropractor will share specific exercises that you can do to stretch and strengthen your shoulder to help prevent injuries. We will also provide various steps you can take each day, including nutritional recommendations and good habits to build to eliminate the source of your pain.
