Shoulder Pain Chiropractor
Shoulder pain, whether acute or chronic, can affect your ability to work or perform day-to-day tasks. If not treated correctly, shoulder pain can escalate to levels of extreme discomfort.
If it’s hard to move your arm in any direction, or you’re experiencing any kind of discomfort when lifting or rotating your shoulder, it is time to see a chiropractor. The sooner you get your shoulder examined by a chiropractor the less likely your problems will worsen.
We accept walk-in appointments and prioritize timeliness, convenience, and affordability.
Causes of Shoulder Pain
- Fractures and broken bones
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Untreated injuries
- Tendon tears
Which Part of Your Shoulder Is Injured?
Shoulders are complex organic mechanisms. The downside of complexity is there are many things that can go wrong inside a shoulder that could reduce range of motion, strength, or stability. Developing an effective chiropractic shoulder treatment plan is reliant on an accurate diagnosis.
Many common shoulder injuries can result in severe pain. Some of these injuries can worsen over time if left untreated. For example, tendonitis is a common condition that affects countless individuals. Since the tendons in the shoulder connect frequently used muscles, they are subject to tremendous wear and tear after years of use, especially if your job or hobbies put a lot of strain on those tendons.
Another frequent shoulder problem are rotator cuff injuries. The rotator cuff is composed of tendons, muscles, and tissues that enable your shoulder to maintain a full range of pain-free motion. Rotator cuff injuries may also be attributable to tendon damage resulting from repetitive motions or a previously untreated injury.
Shoulder Pain Due to Arthritis
Arthritis of the shoulder is another common condition that can go undiagnosed and untreated for years. Arthritis is caused by the wear and tear of a joint coupled with inflammation, which can lead to swelling, stiffness, and pain. If shoulder arthritis is left untreated, the range of motion in the shoulder can be greatly diminished. Arthritis is often experienced by older patients who mistakenly believe that their only option is to cope with shoulder pain.
The chiropractors at Dominguez Injury Centers in Georgia can help manage shoulder pain with special exercises and adjustments.
The Necessity of Shoulder Pain Treatment
Without proper treatment, the intense pain you are experiencing can worsen and eventually cause immobility, otherwise known as “frozen shoulder”. This stiffness is usually caused by increased levels of scar tissue that has accumulated in the injured area. If you suffer from any pain in your shoulder, it is important to receive a chiropractic evaluation to help diagnose the issue. Once your chiropractor has accurately identified your shoulder injury, they can develop a treatment plan to resolve it.
