Understanding Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain can be due to various causes, including other forms of regional pain, such as neck and joint pain. It can also be due to muscle imbalances and injuries like whiplash after a car accident injury. Shoulder pain manifests as dull aches, stiffness, or sharp shooting sensations, limiting your range of motion and impacting your daily activities.
Experience Expert Chiropractic Treatments
At Crystal Springs Chiropractic, our experienced chiropractors specialize in comprehensive care for shoulder pain. We employ a range of effective chiropractic techniques to offer pain relief, improve mobility, and restore optimal shoulder function. Our chiropractors will use the following methods when you visit our clinic.
Chiropractic adjustments, or spinal manipulations, are therapeutic techniques performed using hands or specialized instruments to apply a special force to specific joints in the spine or other body parts. Our chiropractors use these adjustments to correct structural misalignments and reduce inflammation, consequently alleviating pain or discomfort in specific shoulder areas.
Soft Tissue Therapy
Soft tissue therapy is a specialized form of manual therapy focused on treating soft tissues in the body, such as muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia. Our chiropractors apply it with other therapeutic approaches, such as chiropractic care, physical therapy, or sports medicine. This technique primarily aims to enhance the health and function of soft tissues by addressing issues like inflammation, tightness, and restricted movements. There are various gentle tissue therapy techniques. Our team employs the following specifically for shoulder pain:
- Massage therapy
- Myofascial release
- Trigger point therapy
Posture and Lifestyle
A poor posture, such as slouching, strains the shoulder structures, including the muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Over time, this leads to muscle imbalances, joint misalignments, and increased wear and tear on the shoulder joints, causing pain and discomfort.
On the other hand, sitting for long hours at a desk leads to muscle weakness, stiffness, reduced joint mobility, and shoulder pain. Chiropractors at Crystal Springs Chiropractic will offer guidance on posture correction and lifestyle adjustments to alleviate and prevent future shoulder pain.
