Shoulder Pain Relief at Vitality Health Medical
It can be shocking -- and frustrating -- to learn just how many everyday tasks you can no longer perform when your shoulder is hurting. Shoulder injuries and ailments can put a huge crimp in your work routine, sports efforts or home life. But maybe you're tolerating that intolerable pain because you're afraid of undergoing shoulder surgery. Thankfully, Vitality Health Medical in NYC can provide the shoulder pain relief you're looking for without surgical or pharmaceutical aid.
When Your Shoulder Requires Treatment
Anyone can suffer from a temporary case of shoulder pain due to a mild muscle pull or a hard day of heavy shoulder usage. But certain situations can be both extremely painful and extremely limiting until you receive treatment to cope with them. The shoulder joint contains a variety of tissue structures, any of which can suffer acute damage or chronic deterioration. For example, if you tear the muscles or tendons that make up your shoulder's rotator cuff, you may not be able to move your shoulder at all without pain. A dislocated shoulder is an agonizing acute injury in which the upper arm bone pops out of the shoulder socket. Once your shoulder has been dislocated, you have a higher risk of the same injury reoccurring in that shoulder.
Chronic shoulder pain can be even more debilitating that acute shoulder pain, if only because there's no end to it; it can torment you for months or even years. Arthritis (cartilage degeneration between the bones), bursitis (bursae irritated and inflamed by pressure or friction), and tendinitis (chronically inflamed tendons) are prime causes of chronic shoulder pain. Repetitive motion and overuse injuries can bring many of these issues about.
Natural Healing Techniques From Your Chiropractor in Manhattan
Your chiropractor in Manhattan, Dr. Kumar or Dr. Wiley, will X-ray your shoulder while also checking your spine (to see if your pain is actually coming from a pinched cervical nerve). We can then prescribe the right mix of treatments to treat your condition, including:
- Chiropractic care - We can administer chiropractic care to the spine or to the shoulder joint itself.
- Physical therapy - Physical therapy can help you re-train damaged shoulder tissues.
- Massage therapy - Massage therapy speeds healing and eases soft tissue pain, swelling and inflammation.
- Acupuncture - Acupuncture can release endorphins to relieve your shoulder pain without drugs.
