Shoulder Pain

Should pain reliefShoulder pain can be a result of injury or disease of the shoulder joint. Injury can affect any of the ligaments, bursae, or tendons surrounding the shoulder joint. Injury can also affect the ligaments, cartilage, menisci, and bones of the joint. The design of the shoulder joint is such that it sacrifices stability for mobility. As an extremely mobile joint that plays a central role in the action of a major extremity, the shoulder is at risk for injury. Common injuries of the shoulder can lead to inflammation of the bursae or tendonitis and result in rotator cuff dysfunction as well as instability and frozen shoulder. Fracture of the bones of the shoulder can cause intense shoulder pain.

Shoulder pain is another injury centered on a joint that may very well benefit from chiropractic intervention.  These injuries are made all the more important by the fact that people use their arms constantly in daily life.  Shoulder pain may be cause by tendonitis, muscle tears, ligament tears, and any other of a number of conditions.

Injuries to the shoulder tend to be caused by a clearly identifiable traumatic experience although this is not always the case.  Some shoulder injuries occur without a clear precipitating event.

Chiropractic treatments for shoulder injuries can prove helpful and are often used in conjunction with other healing modalities such as massage therapy.  The joint and muscles must also undergo rehabilitation as the limited use experienced after the injury will necessitate it.  To work towards healing the injury and then to return as much of the former joint mobility and strength as possible will probably require a combination of differing treatment modalities.
