Shoulder Pain

Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain is a very common problem that can arise from many causes. There are actually several joints that make up the shoulder, therefore shoulder injuries can be quite complex! Shoulder pain can arise from a multitude of places: from joints, muscles, and tendons. The onset of shoulder pain is highly variable as it can arise without an obvious cause or be related to a specific mechanism of injury such as work or sports injury.

Pain can also occur as a result of repetitive trauma over time, such as a job requiring overhead reaching. People with jobs that require heavy lifting or repetitive shoulder use, or others who play sports such as football and rugby. Those who smoke, have diabetes and/or an overactive thyroid are at higher risk of injury.

Outside of a medical emergency, patients should always try non-surgical treatment options first. Doctors of chiropractic offer the shoulder injured patient a non-surgical option that emphasizes exercise and self-management strategies in addition to manual manipulation, mobilization, and more. If you are experiencing shoulder pain, Total Body Chiropractic can help alleviate your pain, so call us today at (615) 223-1175 to schedule your appointment.
