Almost everyone suffers from occasional shoulder pain due to muscle tension or overuse. If your pain persists, or gets worse, however, it’s time for a checkup. A visit to Kilian Chiropractic in Downtown Vancouver will reveal the cause of your pain so you can take measures for treatment. The following shoulder pain FAQs from your Downtown Vancouver chiropractor can shed more light on shoulder pain causes and symptoms as well as chiropractic options for treatment.
What’s Causing My Shoulder Pain?
Shoulder pain is a fairly common orthopedic condition. Most shoulder pain problems can be traced back to bone, muscle, tendon, or ligament injuries in your shoulder joint. As one of the most complex joints in the body, your shoulder is quite prone to accidental injuries. Shoulder pain can also be caused by muscle overuse or chronic conditions.
Why Are Shoulder Injuries So Common?
Your shoulder is composed of rotator cuff muscles and tendons that surround your shoulder joint. Trauma to your shoulder could cause these muscles to stretch beyond their limits or tear. Poor posture or ergonomics can weaken shoulder muscles, leading to pain and discomfort. Neck injuries can cause pain in your shoulders, as can misalignments in your spine. You can also experience shoulder pain due to muscle tension from stress.
Besides Pain, What Other Symptoms Can Shoulder Injuries Cause?
A shoulder injury may limit your range of motion due to pain and discomfort. You may have difficulty dressing, eating, sleeping, or lifting objects. Shoulder pain may also be accompanied by numbness or a tingling sensation in your arms or hands.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help with Shoulder Pain?
Chiropractic techniques and therapies can help loosen tense muscles, reduce inflammation, and relieve pain. Chiropractic adjustments can help realign shoulder joints to alleviate pain and restore range of motion. Massage therapy will increase blood circulation to the injured area to expedite natural healing. Corrective exercises can help strengthen rotator cuff muscles to prevent future injuries. We also provide lifestyle and nutritional counseling to help improve your overall health and wellness to keep painful conditions at bay.
