What Can A Chiropractor Do For Your Shoulder Pain?

Can a chiropractor help your shoulder pain? Absolutely.

Chiropractors are trained to identify, treat, and help prevent future shoulder pain to get you back to feeling healthy. A chiropractor works with the musculoskeletal system, which involves the bones, joints, cartilage, ligaments, connective tissues, and tendons of the body.

Your shoulder is an integral joint in the body that needs to be able to function properly for everyday actions and movements. When seeing a chiropractor for your shoulder pain, your joint alignment will be reviewed in relation to the pain that you're experiencing.

Although it doesn't often come to mind right away, seeing a chiropractor for your shoulders is actually the most effective way of treating your shoulder pain. Contact us today to book your next chiropractic treatment!

    Chiropractic Treatment for Shoulder Pain

    Chiropractic treatment for shoulder pain typically consists of hands-on adjustments and manipulations, using either special tools or tables. The most common methods for treating shoulder pain with chiropractic care include:

    • Myofascial Release: Myofascial release focuses on relieving tension and tightness in the connective tissues around the shoulder.
    • Articulatory Adjustment: This method of helping relieve pain involves the focus of improving the range of motion in specific joints - the shoulder joint in this case. A chiropractor will assess the existing range of motion and apply force during stretches to help improve mobility.
    • Manipulation: Using a manipulation technique, a chiropractor can help decrease the pain from pinches nerves.
    • Functional Treatment: A functional technique also helps increase the range of motion for your joints but it focuses on loosening the joint to relieve stiffness by moving the shoulder to its maximum range of motion and holding it there until you feel a release.

    Overuse through repetitive motions can causes tiny tears in the muscle tissue fibres that happen at a rate in which the body can't repair the damage in time. This onsets a constant state of inflammation that requires rest and recovery to properly heal.
