Five muscles make up your shoulder. Together they allow you to type, play golf, drive a car, even wash your hair. When one or more of these are injured, you may feel the pain radiating down your arm and into your hand. Or, it may be more concentrated in your shoulder. Either way, it will get in the way of completing daily tasks and your enjoyment of life.
Shoulder pain can show up in a variety of ways including swelling, recurring pain or the lack of mobility in your arm, neck or shoulder area.
If you’re suffering with shoulder pain, you can ice it for 15-20 minutes to numb it. Then, come in to see your chiropractor and get an Xray. This will determine the source of the pain so your chiropractor can recommend a treatment plan. Because, after all, you can’t heal something if you don’t know what the problem is.
How Chiropractic Care Relieves Shoulder Pain
Your chiropractor will make a determination based on your Xrays. He or she will manipulate the tendons and muscles in and around the area of pain as necessary and make adjustments that will re align your body.
This “resets” your muscles and bone structure so they return to their rightful positions putting your body back into alignment, so you don’t feel chronic pain. Your chiropractor will often prescribe therapeutic exercises and make other recommendations for healing too so you start feeling better quickly.
How Quickly Will You Find Relief?
While some people feel immediate relief, others may take a couple of visits before they feel better. A series of regular visits will help your body heal so you can get back to doing the things your love – pain-free.
