Chiropractic Treatment for Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain can cripple your life, preventing you from performing even the most basic tasks. Instead of suffering in pain, turn to chiropractic care. At Millar Chiropractic Clinics, serving Huntsville, AL and the surrounding areas, we offer various shoulder treatment options. We use drug-free, non-invasive techniques, alleviating any medication-related side effects like nausea, vomiting, and headaches.
Causes of Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain can emanate from a variety of causes. It could be an auto accident, slips and falls, poor posture, heavy lifting, repetitive motion, or arthritis conditions. Sometimes, shoulder pain can be pain radiating from other parts of the body.
Some common shoulder injuries include:
- Frozen shoulder
- Cartilage tear
Other non-accident related causes of shoulder pain include:
- Referred pain
- Heart attack
- Bone spurs
- Rheumatoid arthritis
Other Symptoms of Shoulder Pain
Pain, swelling, and stiffness in your shoulder can limits your shoulder use. You may not be able to perform basic duties like dressing, raising your arms, driving, and even sleeping. Other symptoms include a shoulder that looks deformed and weakness in the arms or hands.
Our Treatment Options
When you visit us, our chiropractors will look at your medical history and conduct a physical exam to identify any structural problems and rule out your back or spine's involvement in your shoulder pain. We may also recommend X-ray, CT scan, or MRI tests to understand your condition better.
Next, our chiropractors will use one or both of the below techniques to treat your shoulder pain:
- Manual adjustments: Help reduce stiffness and realign out of balance muscles to reduce pain and improve the motion range.
- Chiropractic massage: Improves blood circulation and relieves stiffened muscles to reduce pain. Our chiropractor may combine with corrective exercises to strengthen shoulder muscles. Lifestyle counseling will also come in handy to make you less susceptible to future shoulder injuries.
