Shoulder Pain

How a Chiropractor Can Help Alleviate Shoulder Pain

When most people think of treating shoulder pain, chiropractic treatments probably do not come to mind. They may think of just taking pain medicine or surgery, but treating shoulder pain is well within the realm of chiropractic treatment. The excellent care you will receive at the Centennial Chiropractic Center in Springfield, OR, will help to alleviate your pain and correct any underlying problems. 


Shoulder Pain Issues and Your Chiropractor

Shoulder pain can be serious like a dislocated shoulder or an injured rotator cuff. It could be a medical issue like tendonitis or bursitis. Or it could just be caused by poor posture. Your chiropractor can help you with the symptoms and treatment for these conditions.

Shoulder injury: After a dislocated shoulder joint is put back into place, care from your chiropractor will help to reduce the swelling and strengthen the muscles and tendons supporting your shoulder. Any misalignment of your spine due to the cause of your dislocated shoulder can be found and corrected as well.

You may think that the only way to fix a damaged rotator cuff is surgery, but that isn't true. Rotator cuff injuries cause inflammation. Inflammation causes pain, stiffness, and a lack of strength in the area. Various chiropractic methods can be used to reduce the swelling, relax the muscles, and heal tears in the muscles.

Medical issues: Bursitis is the inflammation of the bursa sac in the shoulder joint. This sac helps to reduce friction during joint movement. Inflammation of the bursa sac is very painful and can leave scar tissue which adds to the longevity of pain.

Chiropractic treatment will help to reduce the pain by reducing the swelling. Further therapy will break down any scar tissue and alleviate friction and help you to resume normal activities. 

Tendonitis happens when the tendons in your shoulder become inflamed or damaged. Repetitive motion, tearing, and aging all contribute to the occurrence of tendonitis, which can cause great pain and immobility. 

Poor posture: A lot of us have poor posture. Slumped over a desk staring at a computer or slouched in an easy chair watching television are very common positions today. Such posture stains our muscles and causes shoulder pain.
