Because we use our shoulders for many movements, shoulder pain is rather common. Vitality Health New York loves helping our New York, NY, residents who’ve encountered shoulder injuries by providing the comprehensive physical therapy, massage therapy, and sports medicine they need for full recover.
What Causes Shoulder Pain?
An injured shoulder can hamper one’s ability to live life to its fullest, sometimes causing enough discomfort to limit free movement. The shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint comprised of three bones:
- The scapula, or shoulder blade
- The clavicle, or the collarbone
- The humerus, or the arm’s long bone
Together, these bones operate with two main joints, the acromioclavicular joint and the glenohumeral joint. While these joints are durable, they can wear down over time. The shoulder joint is the body’s most mobile, but prolonged use can damage its cartilage, which is its protective cushioning.
Often, a shoulder is injured by repetitive movement. Playing sports, manual labor, or even desk work can wear down the shoulder’s individual parts. In other cases, diseases of the spine, heart, liver, or gallbladder can result in shoulder pain.
Rotator Cuff Tendinitis
Rotator cuff tendinitis occurs when a shoulder’s tendons become swollen. This can occur due to a direct injury or as a result of movement repetition over many years.
There are a surprising number of shoulder pain causes. While the above-mentioned are the most common, other causes include arthritis, torn cartilage, pinched nerves, and dislocation. Because you need your shoulders to perform many daily tasks, it’s important to contact a chiropractor for treatment.
Seeking Assistance for Shoulder Pain
Fortunately, there are many solutions to shoulder pain. Treatment depends on the pain’s severity, of course, but many options include comfortable, noninvasive techniques like physical therapy, a shoulder immobilizer, and sports medicine.
Minor shoulder pain can even be explored and treated with minimal sessions. Your chiropractor is well-trained in shoulder injuries, and deeply understands the practice of reducing joint irritation, tendon irritation, and mobility issues.
Chiropractic care often focuses on relieving stress on the shoulder’s nerves, bursa, tendons, and other tissues which have become irritated due to an injury. Furthermore, your provider can help you strengthen your cartilage and ligaments to alleviate cuff and joint pain.
