Common Questions About Shoulder Pain Relief

Common Questions about Shoulder Pain Relief

Shoulder pain can keep you from enjoying a high quality of life. Left unchecked, your condition may worsen, requiring more extensive treatment. At Dr. Phillips Chiropractic Nutrition and Wellness, we offer accurate diagnosis and treatment of painful shoulder injuries. Here are some common questions you may have about shoulder pain causes and treatment.

What can cause shoulder pain?

Shoulder pain can be caused by an acute injury or chronic condition. Some common shoulder issues that our San Antonio chiropractor can treat includes:

  • Dislocated shoulder
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Shoulder Bursitis
  • Muscle strains
  • Rotator Cuff Injury
  • Tendinitis

The sooner you contact our chiropractor for diagnosis of your condition, the sooner you can benefit from shoulder pain relief.

Why are shoulder injuries so common? 

The complex makeup of your shoulder joint makes it quite prone to injuries. Auto and sports injuries can cause muscle tears, sprains, strains, and misaligned joints that can lead to pain. Poor posture, over time, can weaken shoulder muscles while heavy lifting can put undue pressure on shoulder muscles, resulting in pain. Whether your pain comes from poor posture, heavy lifting, repetitive motions, or acute injury, we offer non-invasive chiropractic solutions for pain relief.

What’s involved in chiropractic shoulder pain treatment?

Through a thorough physical exam, our chiropractor can determine the cause of your pain so we can outline a plan for treatment. Our treatment plans are all customized to suit our patients’ individual healthcare needs.

Depending on your condition, spinal adjustments, massage therapy, and active care exercises to manage pain and help you recover from your injury may be used. Adjustments help realign misaligned bones and joints to reduce pain and inflammation. Massage relieves muscle tension to restore mobility. Massage therapy also helps circulate blood to injured areas for quicker healing. We’ll also recommend active care exercises to strengthen muscles and help you regain flexibility and mobility.
