Shoulder pain can disrupt your life. It can make it difficult to lift items, especially over your head. It can even affect you while you sleep. Fortunately, a chiropractor from Grosman Family Chiropractic Clinic, serving Greensboro, NC, and the nearby region, can help.
Causes of Shoulder Pain
You may sustain an injury to your shoulder. The injury could cause swelling or affect your range of motion. You could also wear out the joint as a result of repetitive motions. For some people, the cause of shoulder pain relates to a chronic condition, such as arthritis, which affects the joint.
Certain injuries are more common if you partake in sports. For instance, you could develop an injury to your shoulder from tennis, swimming, or volleyball. Your risk for arthritis increases as you age. Other factors increase your risk as well, such as your weight, activity level, and having a previous joint injury.
Treatment for Shoulder Pain
Before you undergo your treatment, our chiropractor will thoroughly analyze your shoulder and evaluate your range of motion. Our chiropractor will ask you about any injuries or surgeries you have previously had on your shoulder as well as if you have ever had any other treatment for your shoulder pain.
Once our chiropractor determines your actual cause of pain, our practitioner will determine a course of action that takes your specific needs into mind.
A chiropractor can help you regain function and flexion in your shoulder. Additionally, a chiropractor can provide you with non-surgical, non-narcotic treatments to relieve your shoulder pain. Your doctor provides you with treatments that are specifically targeted with your specific needs in mind.
For instance, our chiropractor may guide you through exercises that slowly help you re-establish your range of motion in your shoulder. The exercises work your shoulder slowly, so you can regain function. When you continuously move your shoulder, you encourage blood flow to the area, which can help with healing.
In some cases, our chiropractor may manually move your shoulder to realign the bone with the joint. This can ease pressure on the surrounding nerves and soft tissue to reduce pain and improve function. Our chiropractor may recommend hot and cold therapy for when you are at home.
Shoulder pain can prevent you from living life how you want. You might avoid doing certain tasks or notice that you cannot perform certain tasks due to your shoulder pain. Fortunately, our chiropractor can help.
