There are several causes of shoulder pain that include repetitive motions, trapped nerves, and injuries from an accident. These issues can pull your shoulder out of alignment and create strain on your nearby tissues, ligaments, and muscles. At Tatsuno Chiropractic in Bakersfield, Dr. Matt treats a wide range of health conditions, including shoulder pain. Best of all, chiropractic care does not rely on pain medication or invasive procedures like surgery to produce results.
Common Causes of Shoulder Pain
The causes of shoulder pain are many, but some of the common causes include:
- Pinched nerves
Issues such as these are usually the result of overuse, moving the wrong way at the wrong time, sports, leisure activities, and even gardening. These issues can become chronic as they pull the joint and soft tissues out of place, resulting in inflammation and a limited range of motion. The shoulder is a difficult area to heal as a general rule and doesn't always respond well to pain relievers. As a result, you will experience pain every time you move your shoulder in a certain way.
How Chiropractic Care Works on Shoulder Pain
Our chiropractor understands how the musculoskeletal system works and can identify the cause of your shoulder pain by observing how you move or cannot move. The goal of chiropractic care is to realign the shoulder and put it back into its natural position. It can take multiple sessions for chiropractic care to be effective for the long term. We will create a customized treatment plan designed to provide pain relief and support the healing process.
Chiropractic Techniques for Shoulder Pain
The type of chiropractic care used for treatment depends on the type of shoulder pain that you are experiencing. Our chiropractor can use several different techniques in combination with one another to release the shoulder and restore movement. These techniques include:
- Cervical spinal manipulation
- Myofascial release
- Functional technique for release
- Articulatory to improve range of motion
- Spinal manipulation
These techniques are used to directly address the source of the shoulder pain and not merely mask the pain as pain medication does.
