How Chiropractors Treat Shoulder Pain
Many individuals commonly refer to the shoulders as the 'top' portion of their body located just above the clavicle. However, the shoulders are made up of muscles, joints, and tendons which help to make everyday life easier by giving us the ability to lift and move objects above the head, perform yoga poses or play tennis. Once any portion of the shoulder becomes injured, damaged, or bruised, these movements become a great imposition and can negatively affect ones' lifestyle. If you are experiencing rotator cuff pain and you are in the Jackson, Madison County, or West Tennessee area, then contact the Durham Chiropractic Clinic. We can address your pain and establish a plan of care that will start you on the journey to relief and restoration of mobility.
Common causes of rotator cuff pain include:
- Arthritic pain
- Inflammation or tears in the tendons
- Broken bones or fractures
- Nerve damage
- Tumors or cysts
- A fractured or broken collarbone
- Torn cartilage
- Rupture in tendon
- Broken arm
The most common complaints related to pain in the shoulders are due to injuries and strains of the rotator cuff from repetitive movement.
How Can a Chiropractor Help With Shoulder Pain?
One of the most non-invasive ways to treat pain with shoulder or rotator cuff injuries is with chiropractic treatment. Chiropractors are highly trained to assess patient complaints relating to pain and discomfort in the shoulders and can perform joint manipulation to offer relief. Using touch techniques that help locate vertebrae that are misaligned in the neck and spine and then re-positioning using gentle pressure applied to the vertebrae, chiropractors encourage realignment of the spine which improves stiffness and relieves pain in the shoulders. Additional treatments such as myofascial release massage and strengthening and stretching are also used to address injuries to the rotator cuff. The goal of the chiropractor is to focus on your overall health, not just the pain in your shoulder. Other areas that may affect recovery include your current exercise and diet regimen, as well as lifestyle, and family history.
