A lot of people visit a chiropractor for neck or back pain. But aside from these common pains, you can also see a chiropractor for foot, head, arm, knee, and shoulder pain, among others. With this in mind, if you’re looking for a more natural way to manage your shoulder pain, chiropractic care could be a viable option for you.
Here at Newcomb Chiropractic Clinic Inc. in Broken Arrow, OK, your chiropractors Dr. Brent Newcomb and Dr. Doug Newcomb can evaluate your case and recommend a treatment plan to give you relief from shoulder pain.
Shoulder Anatomy Basics
One of the most mobile joints in your entire body is the shoulder. It is surrounded by tendons, tissues, bursa, and nerves that could become irritated and result in painful movements. Because your shoulder joint contains various muscles, ligaments, and tendons that surround it, tearing or injury to all these parts could cause shoulder pain. Additionally, neck pain could sometimes radiate to the shoulder joint, causing discomfort and pain.
Chiropractic Care for Shoulder Pain
To ease this pain, people usually turn to medications to treat their symptoms. The problem is that many people can’t and shouldn’t take potent pain medications for various reasons. If you’re one of these people or are looking to manage shoulder pain with a more holistic and sustainable approach, your chiropractor in Broken Arrow, OK, might help.
Due to various components that support and surround the shoulder joint, even a slight misalignment could result in the muscles and ligaments pulling in different directions that could cause pain, spasms, and inflammation. To remedy this, your chiropractor will adjust your shoulder gently, backward and/or forward to put misaligned parts in their proper positions.
Your chiropractor may also perform adjustments on your upper back and neck to help ease your pain. Aside from chiropractic adjustments, your chiropractor will also advise you on modifying your physical activity to prevent injury and improve your shoulder’s flexibility and pain.
Also, your chiropractor can teach you about simple shoulder exercises that you can do at home to relieve and prevent pain. You should also avoid overdoing activities that contribute to your pain.
