Has just the simple act of brushing your hair suddenly made you realize that your shoulder hurts?

Causes of Shoulder Pain
You know your body—if something doesn’t feel right and you’re concerned then it’s time to see a chiropractor in Broken Arrow, OK. Our chiropractor treats shoulder pain caused by,
- Rotator cuff issues and injuries
- Tendinitis and bursitis
- Punched nerve
- Frozen shoulder
- Overuse injuries
- Bone spurs
When you come into our office, our chiropractor will ask you a series of questions regarding your pain (e.g. "Does the pain radiate to other areas?" or "Do you feel the pain in both shoulders or just one?"). Next, we will examine the shoulder, moving it through a series of positions to check mobility, function, and range of motion. Imaging tests such as x-rays or an MRI may also be necessary to make a diagnosis.
You should see a doctor as soon as possible if your pain is severe, or if there is bruising, tenderness, or heat radiating from the joint. You may decide to treat the pain on your own at first to see if it goes away. While some minor strains and injuries can heal by themselves, if the pain persists for weeks despite rest and home care, then make sure to give us a call.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help
Along with determining the cause of your shoulder pain, we can also employ a variety of safe, effective treatment options that don’t rely on medication or surgery. Chiropractic treatment involves different manual therapies that help realign the bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and other soft tissue of the body to improve how the body functions as a whole. Chiropractic adjustments are beneficial because they:
- Reduce pain and inflammation
- Stimulate the body’s natural healing response
- Improve blood flow and circulation
- Improve mobility and functionality
- Loosen tight joints and muscles
- Reduce stress
- Improve athletic performance
- Boost overall wellness and wellbeing
Even if your shoulder pain is due to a chronic condition such as arthritis, getting regular chiropractic care can help get your pain under control and improve your quality of life.
