Shoulder Pain Causes

Shoulder pain can be due to any of these reasons, or for no apparent reason:

  • Any hard tissue injury like an injury to the ligaments or tendons or a fracture
  • Finding it difficult and painful while lifting an arm.
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Sleeping on one side
  • Referred pain from some disease or condition in your chest or abdomen structure that doesn’t increase with movement
  • Working for long hours at a desk job induces prolonged strain
  • Postural syndrome or poor posture triggering pain through the neck, back, shoulders, arms, and legs

With so many possible causes, your chiropractor must first identify the reason for your pain. They then improve the alignment and treat tissues like pain, muscle spasms, and inflammation through gentle chiropractic adjustments.

Shoulder Pain Treatment

Rest, and an ice pack are the best treatments for shoulder pain due to trauma or excessive stress like sports or cleaning. You can get temporary pain relief from over-the-counter painkillers like acetaminophen or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen.

However, if you suffer from a frozen shoulder, it’s better to consult your chiropractor, especially if there is severe or persistent pain because delaying only restricts your movement.

Chiropractor Can Treat Shoulder Pain

When you visit your chiropractor, you will first have to undergo a shoulder exam. Shoulder pain is often a result of misaligned spine or neck injuries, such as falls. Left untreated, shoulder dislocations and stress on ligaments, nerves, and the spine can cause lasting harm. That’s why any chiropractic treatment must include an in-depth examination of your range of motion, nerves, and neck to ensure proper healing. 

If required, your chiropractor may also order some additional tests like an MRI or a CT scan. It’s so that they get a better picture of the cause and type of pain.

A chiropractor can assist in restoring your spine and neck health. Through special techniques, they are able to reduce pressure on shoulders that cause pain. By identifying the dysfunction in your neck, soft manipulation of joints can be carefully done for increased mobility, relief from discomfort and stiffness reduction.

In addition to chiropractic treatment, your shoulder pain can be alleviated through other methods such as ice packs, massage therapy, traction devices and stretching/strengthening exercises. To determine the best course of action for you specifically, your chiropractor will walk through all these options with you in detail.

How Do We Treat Shoulder Pain?

Frequently Asked Questions About Shoulder Pain

Can a chiropractor adjust your shoulder?

Yes, your chiropractor uses chiropractic adjustments to treat, and provide rotator cuff pain relief. Shoulder pain specialists know the right treatments to take care of any shoulder blade injury, and any possible misalignment conditions.

Why is my shoulder pain not going away?

If the pain persists or an everyday activity is painful, it is an indication of aggravated tissues. They start sending pain signals even while not doing anything, and this type of pain and inflammation can lead to more injuries like tissue tears or early arthritis. Early treatment can prevent full rotator cuff tears and possible arthritis.

Can a chiropractor fix shoulder impingement?

Yes, chiropractors can treat pinched impingements, which can lead to neck pain along with pain radiating to the arms from the shoulders. Muscle imbalance is the most common reason for a pinched nerve, and your chiropractor’s adjustments are more than enough to restore balance and release the pinched nerve.

Why does my shoulder pain get worse at night?

If you notice that your shoulder pain is worsening at night, then it’s because of the three conditions- bursitis, rotator cuff injuries, and tendonitis. What happens is that the inflammation in each case tends to pull on the shoulder joint. The tendency is more while the area is compressed, like while you lie on your side in bed. It leads to shoulder pain and stiffness and possible muscle spasms, numbness, and radiating tingling to the fingers.
