In order to understand how chiropractic care relieves shoulder pain, you need to assess the frequent use of your shoulder.
Everyone uses their arms from athletes to corporate office associates to on the go mothers. So when your shoulders are in pain, your routine movements become limited. Shoulder pain looks like you rubbing your shoulders at your desk. Shoulder pain looks like telling your child you can’t pick them up for a hug. And shoulder pain looks like you telling your coach you need to sit this one out. No one wants to live with shoulder pain and most want to avoid surgery.
There’s Good News: Chiropractic Care Relieves Shoulder Pain
There may be alternative option for you that avoids surgery and relieves shoulder pain through natural methods. It’s called chiropractic care.
Chiropractic care relieves shoulder pain for many patients through non-invasive techniques and therapies such as: trigger point therapy, massage therapy, and spinal adjustments.
What is Chiropractic and What Does it Help?
Chiropractors are doctors who specialize in the spine and are able to realign it with a chiropractic adjustment. It involves manipulations and joint adjustments to the spine and extremities in order to restore balance to the body. Chiropractic care relieves shoulder pain, back pain, headaches/migraines, sciatica symptoms, and a variety of other ailments.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy is used to relieve the muscle tension around the spine. This allows for an easier spinal adjustment to be made, and promotes healing in the muscle.
Rehabilitating Shoulder and Back Injuries
We recommend after a few weeks of receiving spinal adjustments that patients seek active rehabilitation of their shoulder and back muscles through physical therapy. Physical Therapy in combination with Chiropractic Care relieves shoulder pain and back pain, as well as strengthens the muscles, joints, and ligaments around the spine.
