What causes shoulder pain?

Some of the most common causes of shoulder pain include:

  • • Dislocation. This occurs when the upper arm bone pops out of its socket. There can be joint immobility along with swelling, bruising, and considerable pain.
  • • Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis. This shoulder pain is due to immobility of the shoulder joint. It can be brought on by injury, surgery, or       neurological issues. You can wait it out and it usually will go away in one to three years. But your chiropractor can help you overcome it much more quickly.
  • • Bursitis. This inflammation of the shoulder joint is usually triggered by lifting heavy objects overhead, throwing a ball, or taking a fall. Your chiropractor can   help you get over this condition faster,
  • • Rotator cuff injury. Torn tendons and strained muscles cause dull shoulder pain that gets worse and worse over time. Without chiropractic intervention, this  kind of shoulder pain can take a very long time to heal.
  • • Sprains and strains. These muscle injuries can result from heavy lifting or trying a little too hard at your favorite sport.
  • • Tendinitis. Painful tendon conditions are common among tennis players and golfers.

Another common source of shoulder pain is the misalignment of the cervical spine, the bones in your neck. You might not even remember the injury that set off a cycle of inflammation and misalignment that puts pressure on the nerves going to your shoulder.

What can a chiropractor near me do to relieve shoulder pain?

Your chiropractor can identify the fundamental cause of your shoulder pain, whether it is in a muscle, or in the fascia connecting muscles, or in the alignment of your spine. Then your chiropractor can give you safe and gentle treatments that end your shoulder pain by correcting it at its cause.
