At Choice Chiropractic and Wellness, we offer chiropractic care for residents of San Tan Valley and Queen Creek, AZ. We treat a wide variety of conditions, including shoulder pain.
Common Causes of Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain can have many causes. It can originate from the shoulder itself or misalignments in other areas, including the spine. Causes of shoulder pain we can treat include injuries like a tear or sprain in the rotator cuff. Frozen shoulder, arthritis, tendonitis, and bursitis are common chronic conditions that we see and treat. Misalignment of the ribs, spine, or neck can also be the culprit. Lastly, subluxation or misalignment of the shoulder joint can trigger shoulder pain.
Shoulder Pain Treatments
Chiropractic care offers several non-invasive treatments for shoulder pain. Rather than focusing on symptom relief, we focus on treating the underlying cause of your shoulder pain.
Chiropractic adjustment is the first step in treating shoulder pain. Misalignment or subluxation of the shoulder joint or other areas can be the cause of shoulder pain or a contributing factor. Your chiropractor will use gentle pressure and thrusts to correct any misalignments. This reduces pain and inflammation, improves range of motion, and helps your body to function correctly.
Physical therapy is often part of the treatment plan for shoulder pain. Your chiropractor will use physical therapy to help loosen the muscles and shoulder joint, correct the underlying condition, and relieve pain. There's a focus on restoring function, so you can perform your daily activities.
In addition to physical therapy in our office, you'll be taught exercises that you can perform at home. This allows you to get the most out of your chiropractic care. Corrective exercises can support proper alignment, relieve pain, reduce inflammation, improve range of motion, and strengthen weakened muscles. It also allows you to take an active role in your own health and recovery.
Massage therapy is about much more than just relaxation. It can relax tight muscles, help maintain proper alignment, relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and help restore shoulder function. It's an excellent complement to other chiropractic techniques. It improves blood flow, increases lymphatic drainage, and helps support your body's natural healing abilities.
Your chiropractor may also offer lifestyle advice. They may suggest new habits and explain how old habits are harming your shoulder or overall health.
