What Causes Shoulder Pain?
While there are many causes of shoulder pain, common culprits include:
Dislocated shoulder - Since the shoulder is the most mobile joint, it's fairly capable of dislocation. In a dislocated shoulder, the top of your arm bone pops out of the socket in your shoulder blade. If you dislocate your shoulder once, the joint can be prone to slipping.
Shoulder Bursae - Bursitis occurs when the bursae, which are fluid-filled sacs that buffer joints from rubbing against one another, become inflamed.
Rotator Cuff Injury - A type of overuse injury, this affects the shoulder rotation. Typically, patients feel a dull ache that increases when they put pressure on the shoulder, say by sleeping on that side.
Muscle Strains & Sprains - Pulling a shoulder, straining a muscle, or tearing a ligament in your shoulder cause pain and inflammation, which can compress nearby nerves.
Tendinitis - Whenever the tendons in your body grow inflamed, tendinitis occurs. This condition is highly common in the shoulder joint. Athletes are particularly prone to tendinitis in the shoulder.
Frozen Shoulder - In this condition, stiffness and pain reduce your ability to raise your shoulder. Typically, frozen shoulder onsets gradually that reverses itself slowly over time.
Shoulder Pain Treatment From Our Chiropractor in Everett
Our chiropractor in Everett first performs a thorough examination to determine what's wrong with your shoulder. It's critical that we determine what's causing your shoulder pain to provide effective shoulder pain treatment.
We take a whole person approach to patient care. We begin with chiropractic adjustments that relieve inflammation and pain. You'll start to feel better right away, as pressure releases from the nervous system. We'll then stabilize the shoulder joint or bring a misaligned joint back into alignment.
Our adjustments are gentle and precise, designed to correct nerve impingement, joint misalignments, and subluxations of the spine. While it takes a series of adjustments to treat causes of shoulder pain, your symptoms will subside from day one.
Once we've addressed your biomechanics, we'll move toward the rehabilitation of the shoulder joint. We'll discuss lifestyle adjustments that keep you in best health as well as nutrition supplements to boost your recovery.
Our chiropractor in Everett will also demonstrate shoulder strengthening exercises and stretches. By performing these stretches in between appointments, you can speed up your recovery, restore your range of motion, and increase the shoulder joint's flexibility and mobility.
