Commonplace Causes of Shoulder Pain

A wide variety of injuries, conditions, and other factors can cause pain in the shoulder. In fact, the cause of shoulder pain does not necessarily have to be located in the shoulder itself. Often, injuries and conditions in other areas of the body – such as the thoracic or cervical spine – can cause pain to radiate into the shoulder.

When the pain that one has in their shoulder is caused by a localized problem, that problem is most often an inflammatory condition. Conditions such as tendonitis, rheumatism, and forms of arthritis fall into this category as does another inflammatory condition, shoulder bursae. This is an inflammation of the bursa – a small sac of fluid that provides a cushion to the structures of the shoulder – that puts pressure on the nerves.

In addition, a number of non-inflammatory conditions can cause pain in the shoulder area. These conditions include:

  • Trauma caused by injury
  • Sprains: Violent wrenching or pulling of the associated ligaments
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Frozen Shoulder – also known as Adhesive Capsulitis
  • Strains caused by muscles and/or tendons being overstretched and/or torn

How Our Chiropractor Can Help

By treating the cause, a well-trained licensed chiropractor can help to alleviate shoulder pain. To do this, they utilize non-invasive treatments in a whole body approach to wellness that emphasizes helping the body to heal itself. All of this is done with the end goal of not only relieving pain but also reducing stiffness, restoring range of motion, and easing other troublesome symptoms.

Chiropractic Shoulder Pain Treatment

Chiropractic treatment makes use of the more than 150 proven chiropractic techniques available today. In order to assess each unique situation, the chiropractic staff will take a full history, examine the area, and run any additional imaging tests needed. Then – and only then – a treatment regimen will be developed and the journey to healing and wellness can truly begin.

Each individual requires a different assortment of treatment techniques to help them heal. Among the most commonly used for shoulder pain are acupuncture, therapeutic massage, active release techniques, trigger point therapy, manual spinal manipulation, nervous system subluxation, and spinal decompression therapy.
