Can a Chiropractor Help with Your Shoulder Pain Treatment?

Written By Levinson Chiropractic & Vax-D Therapy on November 9, 2018

Your shoulder is the most flexible joint you have. That flexibility is the result of the complex functioning of many different structural parts — including bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons.

Because there are so many moving parts, it’s easy for your shoulders to get injured, causing pain, stiffness, and limiting your range of motion.

Causes of Shoulder Pain

Your shoulder is constructed to be able to move freely. While this is great for mobility, it can set you up for injury if you’re not careful.

Tendons, ligaments, and muscles — the soft tissues of your shoulder — can be injured by repetitive motions, overuse, falls, and strains.

Swimmers, tennis players, and other athletes that use repetitive movements in their sport often end up with rotator cuff issues. But you can experience these same problems if you work in an industry — like truck driving or construction — that requires repetitive motion.

Sometimes, injuries seem to crop up out of nowhere. The most common complaints that cause people to seek shoulder pain treatment are:

  • Rotator cuff issues
  • Bursitis
  • Tendinitis
  • Impingement
  • Arthritis

The good news is, you don’t have to rely on pain medication or invasive procedures to relieve your shoulder pain. 

Chiropractic techniques offer an effective shoulder pain treatment that’s simple, non-invasive, and effective.

How Chiropractic Works to Relieve Shoulder Pain

Chiropractic is a minimally-invasive, hands-on technique that gently eases the complex structures of the shoulder back into proper alignment for pain relief and restoration of movement.

Research has shown that patients treated with chiropractic manipulation experience positive outcomes without the worry of unsafe or rigorous therapies like drugs and surgery.

A chiropractor treats shoulder pain by assessing the patient’s shoulder through diagnostic tests like X-rays and visual and functional assessment strategies. 

He or she then performs a series of gentle manipulations that can be combined with a variety of assistive technologies, like soft tissue treatment through massage, to restore the patient’s shoulder to normal functioning.
