Your Chiropractor Can Help You Overcome Shoulder Pain
Our chiropractor can treat shoulder pain caused by bursitis, tendonitis, sprains, strains, or dislocation. Chiropractors can relieve rotator cuff injuries and frozen shoulder without surgery. One of the unique abilities of chiropractic care to treat shoulder pain is treating causes of shoulder pain that don't start in the shoulders. Here are three things that Dr. Michael Tresnicky, our chiropractor for Ladson, Summerville, and North Charleston, SC, wants you to know about chiropractic care for shoulder pain.
The Origin of Your Shoulder Pain Could Be a Neck Injury
Have you ever heard the old song with the line "The shoulder bone connects to the neck bone?" There is a common causal connection between neck pain and shoulder pain, although it's not the bones.
The muscles of your neck are directly connected to the vertebrae of your cervical spine, the bones of the spine of your neck. When something happens to your neck muscles that leads to inflammation, the shoulder can be negatively affected. Microscopic tears in the muscles of your neck caused by whiplash in a low-speed car crash or a sports injury you don't even remember, is followed by tiny amounts of inflammation to remove the injured tissue so your body can replace it.
Over time, the cumulative effects of inflammation in the muscles of your neck pulls the vertebrae of your cervical spine out of alignment. The nerves going to your shoulders can be pinched, causing you constant pain. This can happen even if the injury to your neck was so minor you don't remember it.
Chiropractic Care Can Relieve Some Cases of Shoulder Pain
Our chiropractor is an expert at treating misalignment of the spine. If your shoulder pain originates in your spine, chiropractic adjustments can restore the integrity of your spine to take pressure off nerves, ending shoulder pain.
You won't ever get the treatment you need if you don't see a doctor who understands the origins of your problem. The unique ability of chiropractors to relieve shoulder pain begins with their ability to diagnose the underlying causes of pain, stiffness, and immobility.
It's Always a Good Idea to Get Shoulder Pain Treatment Sooner Rather than Later
If you don't get treatment for your shoulder pain, you will tend to become less active, which has its own health consequences, or you will tend to adapt bad posture to compensate for your shoulder pain, which can start a cascade of chiropractic problems in other places in your body.
