Chiropractic for Shoulder Pain

Chiropractic for Shoulder Pain

If you’ve been keeping up with our blog posts, you’ll know by now that chiropractic care isn’t just for the spine. And if you’re new to reading the YG blog, welcome to a whole new level of understanding in regards to what this great profession can do for you. Indeed, chiropractic for shoulder pain is a great place to start, as this type of pain can be debilitating and with some patients can feel like there’s no end in sight. Luckily, proper and consistent care can relieve most types of shoulder pain.

What are the different types of shoulder pain?

Most types of shoulder pain come from misalignment, tendinitis, bursitis, shoulder instability, arthritis, fracture or dislocation, or frozen shoulder. Frozen shoulder is one of the more commonly difficult types of shoulder pain to treat, mostly because the cause is largely unknown and difficult to pinpoint. Some believe frozen shoulder can come from an issue with the neck, while others feel it is related solely with the rotator cuff. Since the issue seems to come on suddenly with no good path of reason behind, the true cause often remains a mystery.

Commonly when you see your family doctor, they will order tests that may or may not find the cause of your shoulder pain, even if you have complete mobility in the joint. And usually your family doctor will recommend some sort of pain killer, unless surgery is necessary. Luckily, if surgery is not the best route to take you can find good relief for your pain by seeing a chiropractor.

What is chiropractic for shoulder pain?

Your chiropractor will have a variety of approaches to treating your shoulder pain, depending on how your pain presents. A small misalignment is very common in causing pain in the shoulder, and you may not even notice yourself that your shoulder is “off” just a little bit.

Since your shoulder is not as stable as your hip, which has much more muscle to keep the joint in place, your shoulder may be in pain because of even a slight misalignment. This misalignment can potentially be corrected with some gentle manipulations that your chiropractor at YG is an expert in performing. They may use acupuncture, a simple tool, or their chiropractic table to help with the adjustment, or they may simply perform some soft tissue manipulation or any combination of these options.
