Shoulder Pain Q & A

What causes shoulder pain?

Your shoulder is a complex and highly mobile joint that is highly susceptible to overuse and injury. The intricate system of bones, muscles, ligaments, and other structures can become misaligned, inflamed, or damaged due to a variety of conditions.

Some of the most common causes of shoulder pain include:

  • Frozen shoulder
  • Bursitis
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Muscle strain
  • Ligament strain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Nerve compression

A problem with your shoulder may only cause mild discomfort at first, but shoulder issues can worsen over time, leading to more severe pain, limited range of motion, and loss of function.

What are the symptoms of shoulder pain?

You may experience shoulder pain as a dull ache or a shooting pain, and your symptoms may be intermittent or constant. You may also experience the following:

  • Nerve symptoms such as numbness or tingling
  • Weakness
  • Stiffness
  • Limited range of motion
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Tenderness

Because even a mild shoulder injury can lead to misalignment and joint instability, it’s a good idea to schedule an evaluation at Isanti Family Chiropractic if you have shoulder pain or you’ve experienced trauma to your shoulder.

How does a chiropractor treat shoulder pain?

To determine the exact cause and location of your shoulder pain, your experienced chiropractor at Isanti Family Chiropractic performs a full evaluation, including a detailed health history and a thorough discussion of your symptoms.

They also perform a physical assessment in which they examine your shoulder and ask you to perform a series of movements to discover the nature of your shoulder pain.

Following your evaluation, your chiropractor creates an individual treatment plan based on your personal needs. Your treatment plan may include:

  • Spinal adjustments
  • Massage therapy
  • Electronic muscle stimulation
  • Exercise programs
  • Regenerative medicine
  • Lifestyle changes

Depending on the cause and severity of your shoulder pain, your chiropractor may recommend long-term rehabilitation. Chiropractic rehab helps realign and strengthens the structures of your shoulder joint as well as prevents future injury.

The highly trained team at Isanti Family Chiropractic can put an end to your shoulder pain so you can enjoy full range-of-motion and perform the activities you enjoy.
