What Causes Shoulder Pain?
One of the frustrating things about shoulder pain is the fact that it can stem from a variety of problems within this complex joint, which contains not only bone ends and cushioning cartilage but also ligaments, tendons, friction-preventing sacs called bursae, and a set of muscles called the rotator cuff. One of the most sudden and extreme causes is dislocation, when the upper arm bone pops out of joint completely. Recovering from an injury with your arm immobilized can also cause a form a stiffness known as frozen shoulder. A rotator cuff injury may include painful tears in the muscles or sprained shoulder ligaments.
Shoulder pain can also develop slowly as part of a chronic condition. Overuse of the joint can create micro-tears that lead to chronic tendinitis or muscle strain. Certain sports or work tasks may make your vulnerable to this type of chronic shoulder pain. Your shoulder pain may not even be a shoulder problem at all - it might be referred pain from an impinged cervical nerve root in your spine.
Chiropractic Care and Other Treatment Options
Don't assume that you're stuck with surgery as your only shoulder care option. Our chiropractor, Dr. Carrie Roeder, can examine both your shoulder and your overall musculoskeletal alignment while discussing your symptoms and lifestyle with you to pinpoint your shoulder pain cause. Chiropractic adjustment to the shoulder itself can fix positional problems in the joint, while spinal adjustments can relieve any nerve impingement that might be sending pain to the shoulder. Massage, moist heat therapy, interferential muscle stimulation, and other all-natural treatments can ease soft tissue pain and encourage those tissue to heal, restoring your pain-free range of motion.
