What Causes Shoulder Pain?
Shoulder pain can be caused by a number of reasons. The shoulder joint is surrounded by many muscles and ligaments. An imbalance in any of these muscles and ligaments can result in painful movements. Pain can be attributed to joint dysfunction, tightened ligaments, and muscle soreness. In order to for chiropractic treatment to be most effective, you will be evaluated and diagnosed using state of the art diagnostics.
These diagnostics may include imaging tests or orthopedic tests
How Can a Chiropractor Help?
Once the cause of your pain has been properly diagnosed, your chiropractor will develop a treatment plan just for you. This treatment plan can include a variety of therapy options. Chiropractic adjustments to the shoulders is one of the most common types of therapy. Adjustments can bring alignment back into the shoulders to relieve unnecessary pressure and pain. If the pain is being caused by misalignment of the spine, spinal adjustments may be used as well.
Poor posture is another cause of shoulder, back and neck pain. Your chiropractor can help you understand how to improve your posture through lifestyle changes, as well as exercises and stretches you can practice at home. Many people report that chiropractic adjustment helps improve their posture over time as well.
