Shoulder Pain and Injury: Causes and Treatments
Updated: Sep 10, 2020
Chiropractic care is typically sought out by people seeking relief from neck or back pain. Dr. Mark Freund and Dr. Nicole Gopaul of Natural Care Chiropractic are also skilled in treating extremities like the knees, elbows, and the shoulders. The shoulder joint is the body’s most mobile joint. It is surrounded by nerves, tendons, bursa, and other tissues which can all experience irritation and cause pain. This complex structure means that shoulder pain can have many causes and may require your chiropractor to assess your overall health and condition to target the root of the problem.
Whether pain began after an injury or has increased over time, chiropractic treatment is a safe and effective way to treat damage to both hard and soft tissue. When shoulder pain is caused by joint irritation, relief can often be achieved through an adjustment along with soft tissue mobilization. Pain in the muscles can be addressed by application of manual therapies or electrical stimulation therapy, and your chiropractor will recommend exercise and stretches if needed. If you are suffering from pain in the shoulder, don’t wait any longer to come see us!
