Shoulder pain can arise as the result of numerous incidents; either from an injury such as a motor accident, or as the symptom of a chronic condition such as arthritis. Many of the clients which we treat at Spinal Care Clinics are often surprised by the intensity and duration of shoulder pain.
It is important to remember that your shoulders are essential parts of your body which are fundamental for performing the majority of daily activities. As such, any shoulder pain injuries should be seriously considered and immediately treated to prevent long term physiological conditions.
Some of the most common symptoms of shoulder pain include:
If you suffer from any of these conditions, it is crucial that you seek professional help. For instance, chiropractic care has been shown to be an extremely effective treatment for shoulder pain, irrespective of the initial cause.
Our team of experienced chiropractors will precisely examine your neck area since shoulder pain can frequently be the result of “referred” pain from the neck. Whether the shoulder pain is connected to the neck or is limited to the lower part of the shoulder, it can generally be treated with non-invasive methods of natural healing such as chiropractic care and massage therapy.
Care for an injured shoulder may include the application of heat or ice packs, gentle manipulation from the chiropractor to help the shoulder return to its original state of functionality, as well as gentle stretching and strengthening exercises that the client can perform at home.
At Spinal Care Clinics, we offer a unique approach to healing and wellness. Our team of fully qualified and registered practitioners utilise state of the art chiropractic equipment such as electric treatment benches and advanced digital X ray machines to extensively examine your shoulder and neck area in order to diagnose the cause of your shoulder pain. In a large number of cases, our clients suffer shoulder pain as the result of referred pain from a neck injury. Nevertheless, whether your shoulder pain is related to a neck injury or whether it is isolated to the lower part of your shoulder, we can prescribe and administer a course of non-invasive healing methods which will alleviate your shoulder pain.
Moreover, we recommend that once your initial shoulder pain has been treated, that you continue to receive treatment in the form of sports massage therapy. This is because sports massage treatments have been proved to be an extremely effective supportive measure for a myriad of injuries.
By undergoing regular massage treatments and chiropractic care, you can reduce the probability of your shoulder pain resurfacing in future.
