Shoulder Pain

Why You Should Seek Chiropractic Treatment for Shoulder Pain

The shoulder is one of the most mobile joints in the human body. It is surrounded by tissues, nerves, bursa, and tendons that allow you to rotate your arm any direction you want. This constant movement may cause irritation or too much friction, causing pain around the shoulder. Therefore, if you have ever googled about finding a 'chiropractor near me' because of shoulder pain, you are not alone. However, that doesn't mean that you should 'tough it out' because our chiropractors at Chiropractic Associates, Inc. in Middletown can help you lead to a pain-free life.


Why Is Shoulder Pain So Common?

Shoulder pain typically arises from the joint or from the surrounding tendons, ligaments, or muscles. Joint shoulder pain is the most common, and it worsens with movement of the arm or activities of the shoulder or arm. Other conditions and diseases that affect your chest like heart conditions can also cause shoulder pain. Shoulder pain that is not directly coming from the shoulder is known as "referred pain." Referred pain means the pain is constant and doesn't get worse when you move your arm.

Common Causes of Shoulder Pain

Just like back pain, shoulder pain can be caused by a variety of factors such as age, overworking the shoulder joint, a fall, sleeping posture, an accident, or an injury. Our chiropractors will perform various tests to check the range of motion of your neck and shoulders as well as muscle-related sensations. Here are the most common shoulder pain types:

  • Rotator cuff injury: This injury is when tendons get compressed under the bones around the shoulder. As a result, compressed tendons become inflamed, leading to pain.
  • Bursitis: Bursitis is a type of inflammation on the fluid-filled sac around the shoulder. The bursa is located between the tendon and the bone.
  • Frozen shoulder: Also referred to as adhesive capsulitis, frozen shoulders is a condition that causes the joints to stiffen. Stretching and exercise therapy can help treat the condition.
  • Shoulder dislocation: Shoulder dislocation occurs when the upper part of the arm bone gets disconnected from the scapula.

How Can a Chiropractor Help?

When you visit our chiropractors in Middletown, we will conduct several tests and scans to determine where exactly the pain is coming from. It is possible that your shoulders could have moved out of alignment leading to inflammation, muscle spasms, and pain. In such a case, our chiropractors will only need to perform several chiropractic adjustments to restore normal alignment and mobility.
