Causes of Shoulder Pain

The shoulder is a complex joint with a wide range of motion. Due to this, it is highly susceptible to a variety of injuries and conditions that can cause pain. Some of the most common causes of shoulder pain include:

•             Rotator cuff injuries: The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that stabilize the shoulder joint. Tears or inflammation in the rotator cuff can lead to significant discomfort and weakness.

•             Bursitis: Bursae are fluid-filled sacs that cushion the bones and tendons around the shoulder. Bursitis occurs when these bursae become inflamed and irritated.

•             Arthritis: Osteoarthritis can affect the shoulder joint and result in pain, stiffness, and weakness.

•             Seatbelt injuries: Sudden impacts from car accidents, especially when wearing a seatbelt, can strain or tear the ligaments and muscles in the shoulder.

•             Sports injuries: Throwing athletes and those who participate in sports that require repetitive overhead motions are more prone to shoulder injuries.

Treatment for Shoulder Pain

Chiropractic care offers a safe and effective approach to shoulder pain relief. We will identify the underling cause of your pain and develop a personalized treatment plan for your specific needs. Your care plan may include:

•             Chiropractic adjustments: Chiropractic adjustments can help improve joint function and mobility in the shoulder and spine, which reduces pain and inflammation.

•             Soft tissue therapy: Techniques like massage therapy can help relax muscles, improve blood flow in the affected region, and help you heal.

•             Rehabilitation exercises: Our chiropractor may teach you specific exercises to strengthen the muscles around the shoulder joint. These exercises help improve stability and prevent injuries from reoccurring.
