Many people of all ages suffer from shoulder pain. Indeed, it is the most complex joint in our body and the causes are various: a sports injury, tension or general wear and tear, osteoarthritis... Shoulder pain can be debilitating and have a considerable impact on our daily activities. If you are suffering from shoulder pain, it is best to speak to a chiropractor to determine the best course of action.
Chiropractic care can be an effective treatment for shoulder pain.
When it comes to shoulder pain, it is important to receive good treatment. Chiropractors are highly trained professionals specializing in the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. They have the knowledge and experience to properly diagnose and treat shoulder pain. With the right treatment, chiropractic can be an effective way to reset the shoulder joint, reduce pain, and improve range of motion.
Chiropractic treatments for shoulder pain involve adjustments, mobilizations, tractions, stretches and exercises... All of these treatments reduce pain while providing long-term relief.
Adjustments are used to reset the shoulder joint in order to reduce pain. During this procedure, the chiropractor applies high-velocity thrust to the joint which stimulates the nerves in the shoulder joint. This helps restore the joint's normal range of motion and reduce pain.
Mobilizations involve gentle manipulation of the joint which also helps improve mobility and range of motion. Traction can be used to stretch joints and muscles. This helps promote healing and relaxation of the shoulder muscles. Stretching helps improve flexibility and range of motion, while specific exercises strengthen the muscles and tendons around the joint.
Your chiropractor may also recommend lifestyle changes to reduce shoulder pain. This may include corrections to posture and activity level. It is important to follow the chiropractor's advice to ensure the best possible results.
