SHOULDER PAIN AND CHIROPRACTIC
If you suffer from a shoulder injury or pain in the shoulder it is important to seek chiropractic treatment so your injury can be evaluated immediately.
Our St. Pete shoulder injury doctor will evaluate your injury and develop a tailored plan of treatment for your injury to relieve pain and speed up healing. Removing the inflammation in the joint usually results in a significant decrease in pain. Specific muscle stretching and at-home exercises are used to correct any muscular imbalances between the upper back and chest. Correcting these imbalances helps to ensure smooth and even shoulder motion.
Some of the most common causes of shoulder pain include:
– Rotator cuff tear
– Instability due to injury such as dislocated shoulder
– Overuse leading to inflammation
– Bursitis or tendinitis, also called impingement syndrome
– Ligament injury, called acromioclavicular tear or A/C separation
– Calcium deposits in the tendons
– Frozen shoulder
– Referred pain — pain that originates in the neck, back, or internal organs, yet is felt in the shoulder
