Shoulder pain can occur for a number of different reasons. A sudden injury such as a sports accident or an auto accident is a common cause. Many people may suffer from repetitive motion injuries, for example, those people who have jobs where they must constantly put extra pressure and strain on their shoulders. Pinched nerves, sprains, and dislocations are all common reasons for shoulder pain, also.
If the pain is persistent for days or even weeks, it should be taken seriously. Any shoulder pain that intensifies when making specific movements should be treated as soon as possible. If swelling, serious inflammation or restricted range of motion are issues, then the shoulder pain is serious enough to see a chiropractor for help.
Chiropractic adjustments are an integral part of a chiropractic treatment plan for shoulder pain. The adjustment can ensure that the shoulder is correctly aligned. Proper alignment can help take the pressure and pain away rapidly. Once the shoulder is in its correct position, the patient will be less likely to suffer from repetitive motion shoulder issues, shoulder inflammation, and shoulder stiffness. The chiropractor may also provide other treatments that can help improve comfort and range of motion, including moist heat and ice treatments.
One of the best ways to avoid future shoulder injury is to follow a regular exercise routine that is focused on shoulder balance and strength. The chiropractor will provide each patient with a series of corrective exercises that can be done at home daily. These exercises are easy to fit into any daily routine. If the prescribed exercises are done faithfully, the shoulder will strengthen and become more resilient, which may help avoid future injury and pain.
