Shoulder pain is common among all age groups, but chiropractic care is available to provide relief. Chiropractors are familiar with the complex nature of the joints in the shoulder as well as the most common types of injuries that affect the shoulder. Dr. Sayani at Georgia & Thurlow Chiropractic provides care for shoulder pain in Vancouver, British Columbia. We have gathered some of the things you need to know before your first appointment with a chiropractor for your shoulder pain.
Causes of Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain is common because the clavicle and shoulder take on a lot of weight and pressure. The shoulder is a complex joint, and that means that several conditions may result in shoulder pain. Common causes of shoulder pain include:
- Stress Fractures
- Poor Posture
- Poor Sleeping Position
- Bone Infection
If you experience shoulder pain along with other symptoms, consult with a professional as soon as possible to prevent the condition from becoming worse. Shoulder injuries can become worse if they are left untreated, and the pain can eventually spread to other areas of the body.
Chiropractic Care Options
Chiropractors can provide a variety of treatment options to help your shoulders heal effectively. Together, we will develop a treatment plan that is customized for your specific needs. Your plan will take into account the cause of your shoulder injury and other methods you have tried.
- A chiropractic adjustment is often helpful for treating shoulder pain. Adjustments ensure that your body is in alignment, which helps your body avoid putting more pressure on weaker muscles that struggle to take on the burden.
- Our chiropractor may recommend massage therapy. Massage therapy eases tense muscles, including those in the neck and shoulders. When these muscles are loose, they move more easily. Massage also helps you avoid serious injuries caused by tense shoulder joints as well, and it can also speed up the healing process.
- A variety of other treatment options are available to reduce shoulder pain. Our chiropractor may recommend electrical muscle stimulation, heat therapy, cryotherapy, and physiotherapy. Corrective exercises are also part of an effective treatment plan for patients with shoulder pain.
