6 Reasons to Seek Chiropractic Care for shoulder pain:

Can chiropractors help resolve my shoulder pain? Many do! In fact many chiropractors specialize in managing shoulder pain. Some offer athletic taping, laser therapy, shoulder stretches and exercises that compliment chiropractic adjustments. Here are several reasons why visiting your local chiropractor may be the best way to manage your shoulder pain.

1. I have a tingling sensation running from my neck or shoulder into my fingers.

The nerves that run to the fingers, the ulnar, median and radial nerves run from the brain, down the brachial plexus of the shoulder to the fingers. If there is pressure on a nerve anywhere from the neck, shoulder, elbow or wrist, that pressure on the nerve can cause radiating pain or numbness into the fingers. Chiropractic care can remove the pressure on the nerve and relieve the nerve pain.

2. I have shoulder pain, but I have had a fractured bone or a torn tendon in the past.

Your chiropractor can focus on osseous alignment for improved posture and range of motion. Working with your chiropractor after a fractured bone or torn ligament has healed can help return the body to normal function post injury and support the areas of the body that were affected by the injury. Your chiropractor can also help improve fascia and muscle tone for improved range of motion post shoulder surgery.

3. I have muscle tension and stiffness.

Many chiropractors use trigger point therapy, or other chiropractic soft tissue modalities to stretch tight muscles and strengthen weak muscles. This is particularly helpful when working with the shoulder, as the shoulders are surrounded by the pectoral muscles, muscles that make up the rotator cuff and subscapular muscle that affect shoulder stability. Chiropractic trigger point therapy in addition to chiropractic adjustments can help improve range of motion and shoulder stability.

4. I have upper shoulder pain at the bicep tendon.

Bicep tendonitis is a very common health complaint. It often occurs when the bicipital tendon slides out of the bicipital groove. This can occur from heavy lifting. Bicep tendonitis causes pain, discomfort in the upper arm. Chiropractors can work with the bicep tendon and surrounding soft tissue structures to slide the tendon back into the groove, resolving the issue. They might even use athletic tape to stabilize the joint and suggest nutritional support to reduce inflammation and aid the body’s natural healing processes.

5. I already work with a physical therapist or massage therapist.

Chiropractic care may be complimentary and supportive in your shoulder recovery. Receiving a massage before a chiropractic treatment can improve muscle flexibility and help to hydrate the fascia so that the adjustment is that much more effective and lasting. Physical therapy exercises, in addition to chiropractic care, can speed up recovery.

6. I want to avoid future shoulder pain.

Look no further! Incorporating chiropractic care into your healthy lifestyle can prevent future injuries and pain by improving postural, and spinal alignment and troubleshooting shoulder tension. Wellness visits are a great option for athletes, gardeners, moms and everyone who experiences heavy lifting throughout the day.
