We do more movements with our shoulders than any other part of our body. Our shoulders are adaptable, though when they stop working, many problems can occur. And because of the high range of mobility in our shoulders, when the joints are stiff, painful, or lose their normal movement, the symptoms can vary.
What Can Cause Shoulder Pain?
Shoulder pain can result from many conditions such as rotator cuff disorders, stiffness, tension, frozen shoulder, arthritis, or any other problems. These conditions range from mild to severe and result from specific injuries to the joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, or wear and tear from past traumas. Also, when there are problems with the neck, mid-back, and arms, it can affect how the shoulder is working. If you aren’t sure what is causing your shoulder pain, seeking help from a chiropractor is the best option for you.
How Can Chiropractors Help Shoulder Pain?
Our chiropractors are here to help you by assessing your condition. Once they can determine a specific physical cause, they can begin treatment for shoulder pain. While most patients feel some relief after the first adjustment, most chiropractors will recommend that you come in for a series of adjustments to help your pain completely resolve.
