Have you recently been injured or experienced chronic shoulder pain? Our chiropractic team at Bryant Park Health Medical can help. Following are the answers to several questions our chiropractor frequently receives regarding shoulder pain.
There are several causes of shoulder pain. Shoulder pain can come from a dislocation, pinched nerves, sports injuries, strains from overexerting yourself, frozen shoulder, bursitis, tendonitis, fractures in the upper arm or collarbone, arthritis, or shoulder joint instability.
Sports injuries occur when an athlete overexerts him or herself. Athletes who participate in football, racquetball, or baseball are more likely to injure their shoulders due to the nature of their sport.
Bursitis is the swelling and inflammation of the bursae, which are small sacs carrying fluid that are part of the shoulder joint. They act as a barrier between your soft tissues and bones.
Pinched nerves happen when pressure is placed on nerves. The primary symptoms of pinched nerves are pain and discomfort.
Our chiropractor in Midtown can help in many ways. You want to first make an appointment with us at Sweeney Chiropractic Clinic. You can print and fill out our new patient form from the comfort and convenience of your home and bring it to your first appointment. After we diagnose your shoulder pain, we can discuss putting you on a treatment plan.
Treatment for shoulder pain can include chiropractic adjustments, electric muscle stimulation, therapeutic ultrasound, corrective exercises, and massage therapy. Chiropractic adjustments help realign the neck and spine. This can take off pressure from soft tissues, bringing pain relief to these areas. Massage therapy uses long, circular strokes over the body to help relieve sore muscles and relieve pain.
