Shoulder pain can be caused by a variety of reasons, and chiropractic care looks to get to the root of the problem so that you can recover fully. Chiropractic care uses gentle manipulation strategies, stretching exercises, hot and cold therapy, massage, ultrasound and more to improve your range of motion, reduce inflammation and restore your shoulder joint. Causes of shoulder pain include:

A dislocated shoulder: When your shoulder becomes dislocated after an accident or injury, the shoulder will need to be coaxed back into place. Once the shoulder joint is set, the muscles, ligaments, and tendons around the shoulder can cause pain.

• Shoulder bursae: Your shoulder bursae are tiny, fluid-filled sacks that provide cushioning for your shoulder joint: If they become inflamed, you can experience pain in your shoulder until the inflammation is reduced. Chiropractic adjustments can help alleviate unnecessary pressure on your bursae because of misalignment.

• Frozen shoulder: This is often caused by scar tissue that causes your shoulder joint capsule to get thicker and hard. With a range of motion exercises, gentle stretching, and other therapies, your chiropractor can help restore the range of motion and reduce pain in your shoulder.

• A rotator cuff injury: When you injure your rotator cuff, the range of motion in your shoulder will be greatly reduced: If this is the cause of your pain, your chiropractor will slowly work on your shoulder to reduce inflammation and improve circulation to the area.

• Strains & Sprains: These are common causes of shoulder pain. Chiropractic care can speed up the healing process by improving circulation and increasing range of motion.

Tendinitis: When your tendons around your shoulder are inflamed, this can cause significant pain. Rest, ice and massage can restore function.
