Chiropractic Care for Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain is a common problem that affects millions of adults and can impair a person’s ability to accomplish daily tasks comfortably. Chiropractic care offers non-invasive, drug-free methods for reducing pain and improving shoulder mobility. At Hanes Total Health Care Center in Chillicothe, OH, our chiropractors provide the necessary testing and treatment to alleviate your shoulder pain and prevent it from reoccurring.
Symptoms of Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain is not always a matter of simply having pain. Because the shoulder joint is the most movable joint in the body, any dysfunction in the bones, tendons, or ligaments can result in limited range of motion and chronic or intermittent discomfort in and around the shoulder. The shoulder joint can become swollen and immobile, making simple tasks impossible to accomplish.
Common Causes of Shoulder Pain
In some instances, collisions can occur in car accidents or athletic activities, causing shoulder pain. We also see cases where repetitive movements from work tasks cause injury to the structures of the shoulder. Lifting heavy objects and doing overhead work can lead to tears in the soft tissue. Arthritis, caused by the normal wear and tear on joints, can also affect the shoulders. Fractures of bones in the arm can also cause shoulder pain.
How Our Chiropractors Can Help
Our chiropractors will thoroughly assess your shoulder and overall health during your first consultation to determine the best treatment methods for providing relief, strengthening body structures, and avoiding further injury to the shoulder. We offer a variety of chiropractic techniques to deal with shoulder pain and poor mobility, including manual adjustment and soft tissue manipulation. Dry needling is a technique that can be used to reduce swelling and stiffness. Massage therapy promotes increased blood flow to affected areas, helping to improve the recovery time. Specific exercises can help strengthen shoulder muscles for improved movement. We may also use nutritional counseling to enhance tissue repair and joint function while recovering.
