The shoulder joint connects to your arm, your collarbone, and your scapula. But pain can radiate out to the rib cage, elbow, wrist, and hands, affecting the kinetic chain. Shoulder pain, therefore, could be rooted in an injury or condition specific to one or all of these bones or surrounding tissues.
Several different factors may cause shoulder pain, including:
In severe cases, the shoulder may also hurt because of an injury to the spinal cord.
As a method of care that address all aspects of health and well-being, chiropractic care treats shoulder pain in various ways. At Brooklyn Chiropractic Studio, Dr. Megan aims to understand what’s causing your shoulder pain. To do this, she might recommend X-Rays, or she performs a series of tests that gauge your mobility, posture, and range of movement.
Your initial appointment will also include a lengthy assessment of your health history, symptoms, lifestyle, and recovery goals.
Once Dr. Megan has a clear picture of your state of health, she can perform initial chiropractic adjustments and then recommend a proposed treatment plan. This plan will most likely include further adjustments, which will be tailored to you, depending on your symptoms.
She may also recommend specific exercises or stretches to perform at home, supplements to take, or lifestyle changes that help support your healing.
Chiropractic care, as a safe and effective method for pain relief, is an excellent option if other methods of treating your shoulder pain have yielded limited results. You can incorporate it into any existing treatment plan you have with your primary physician, as it poses no contraindications with medication or other treatment methods.
Most patients experience pain relief in their first chiropractic session, while sometimes it can take a few sessions to enjoy the full benefits. Chiropractic care not only eliminates pain, but it may also help to reduce your stress levels, increase your flexibility and movement, and improve your posture.
As a successful chiropractor with years of experience healing children, teens, and adults, Dr. Megan can be your trusted advisor on your journey back to health.
