Treatment for Shoulder Pain from our Sacramento Chiropractor
Chiropractors treat a wide range of motion injuries including shoulder problems. At Gibson Chiropractic in Sacramento, we see many patients who have shoulder joint irritation caused by arthritis or by a rotator cuff injury. We can use spinal manipulation and other treatments to relieve your shoulder pain.
The Shoulder’s Complex Anatomy
The shoulder is the body’s most mobile joint, but also one of the most complex because the joint is surrounded by nerves and four tendons that attach bone to bone. The tendons spread over the joint to form a cuff. Cartilage tissue and ligaments provide further support.
How Shoulder Injuries Occur
Any of these tissues can stretch or tear from sports injuries, auto injuries or other trauma, causing pain and inflammation. Poor posture can also contribute if you have a tendency to hunch forward over your keyboard. Neck injuries can also radiate pain into the shoulder area. We see many of the following types of injuries:
- Dislocated shoulder
- Shoulder Bursae
- Frozen Shoulder
- Rotator Cuff Injury
- Strains & Sprains
The Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment for Shoulder Pain
We will do the range of motion tests to determine the type and extent of your shoulder or neck injury. Our chiropractor can use gentle shoulder adjustments to shift the joint backward and forward to fix the issue. We also will perform chiropractic adjustment on your neck and upper back to alleviate pressure on the shoulder. We’ll show you how to improve your posture and prescribe exercises that strengthen the rotator cuff.
