Chiropractic Care for Shoulder Pain at Phillips Chiropractic
Chiropractors are best known for treating spine-related conditions. However, our chiropractor, Dr. Jeffrey Phillips, also has extensive experience in diagnosing, treating, and preventing other common health problems, including shoulder pain. Discover how he can help you find natural relief from a stiff, achy, and painful shoulder.
Shoulder Pain Causes and Symptoms
The shoulder joint is the most mobile joint in your body. Injuries, infections, and other underlying health problems can lead to pain, stiffness, weakness, and issues in other body parts, such as neck pain or stiffness and weakness in the arm or hand.
Shoulder pain is often caused by:
- Muscle strains
- Inflammation in tendons and bursa surrounding the shoulder joint
- Shoulder dislocation
- Ligament sprains
- Labrum tears
- Compressed nerves in the cervical spine
Shoulder pain can happen to anyone, but you are more likely to experience shoulder pain if you participate in an activity that requires a lot of lifting or repetitive movements, like swimming, pitching, or weightlifting. We also see patients suffering from shoulder pain due to poor posture while working or sleeping. Shoulder pain can develop due to acute trauma, such as a slip and fall or a car accident.
How Our Chiropractor Can Help
If you are suffering from shoulder pain, our chiropractor can help. Dr. Phillips can identify the underlying causes and contributing factors to your shoulder pain and address these issues using various chiropractic techniques. The benefit of chiropractic care is that it works to naturally alleviate a condition without the use of medications or invasive procedures. If your shoulder pain is caused by compression of a nerve in the neck area, spinal decompression can alleviate this pressure and realign the spinal column to prevent the pain from reoccurring.
We often provide gentle hands-on adjustments and corrective exercises to improve the shoulder’s strength and range of motion. In addition, individualized nutritional counseling ensures your body gets the healing nutrients it needs to reduce inflammation and restore shoulder joint health. Our team also helps you learn practical ways to improve your movement, posture, stress management, and pain management to maximize shoulder health and performance at any age.
