Written By Chiropractic USA on March 15, 2019

Shoulder pain can be the result of any number of causes, and when it comes to shoulder pain treatment, chiropractic care can help quite a bit.

Depending on the cause of the initial injury, and the extent of it, chiropractic treatment can help reduce swelling, pain and stiffness.

Causes of Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain is a common symptom felt by those suffering from any number of injuries and disorders. Pain can radiate into the shoulder from a neck injury, from sleeping in an odd position or can even be a result of an old sports injury.

Common causes of shoulder pain tend to fall under any of the following categories:

  •          Frozen Shoulder
  •          Tendinitis
  •          Strains and Sprains
  •          Dislocation
  •          Rotator Cuff Injury
  •          Inflammation of the Shoulder Joint (Bursitis)

Besides pain, a shoulder injury could present itself with a number of other symptoms, including:

  •          Redness/Bruising
  •          Arm/Shoulder Weakness
  •          Inflammation/Swelling
  •          Loss in overall Range of Motion

Shoulder Pain Treatment with Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care can do wonders when it comes to shoulder pain treatment, and after the initial cause of the pain has been diagnosed, there are a number of different treatment options that can be used to give patients some relief.

Manual Manipulation

Manual manipulation is a common shoulder pain treatment method used because the pain is often a result of a problem located on the cervical spine or the acromioclavicular joint, which is located at the top of the shoulder.

Manual manipulation helps to correct the musculoskeletal areas that may have become misaligned, and patients often find pain relief with one adjustment.

Activator Adjustments

This method uses a small instrument known as the activator adjusting instrument to deliver a gentler force to the spine or joint. This method is often considered a less invasive and more targeted than manual manipulation.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is another popular form of shoulder pain treatment used to help strengthen weakened or injured muscles. Your chiropractor will walk you through different targeted exercises and stretches that will help to strengthen and rehabilitate your shoulder muscles.
