Q & A

What is shoulder pain?

Your shoulder joint consists of muscles, tendons, bones, ligaments, and cartilage. It connects your upper arm to your torso and allows for smooth movement. 

Shoulder pain is discomfort in the joint that sometimes can feel crippling. The pain can resolve on its own over time, but in some cases, you need chiropractic and/or medical intervention.

What does shoulder pain feel like?

If you have a shoulder injury, you may notice the following symptoms:

  • Sharp pain
  • Dull aching
  • Reduced range of motion
  • Stiffness
  • Swelling
  • Limited motion
  • Inability to raise your arm above your head
  • Redness
  • Warmth
  • Bruising

Your pain could be mild, moderate, or severe. If you’re looking for relief but want to avoid pain medication and invasive procedures, see a Spinal Correction Centers provider for an evaluation.

What are the risk factors for shoulder pain?

If you have shoulder pain, it could be because of:

  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Fracture
  • Torn cartilage
  • Joint inflammation
  • Dislocation
  • Frozen shoulder 
  • Sprain
  • Tendinitis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Arthritis 
  • Impingement
  • Nerve problems
  • Tendon rupture
  • Subluxation

You might injure your shoulder as a result of age-related wear, disease, playing sports, being in a car or work accident, or falling.

How do you diagnose the cause of my shoulder pain?

To find out what’s causing your shoulder pain, your Spinal Correction Centers provider asks about your symptoms, lifestyle habits, and medical history. 

They check your vital signs, examine your shoulder joint, and may recommend blood tests, X-rays, an MRI, a CT scan, or other imaging procedures.

How is shoulder pain treated?

The Spinal Correction Centers experts offer shoulder pain solutions to alleviate your discomfort naturally. 

They provide chiropractic care by manipulating tissues in your shoulder and spine to align injured tissues better, relieve nerve pressure, and improve shoulder joint structure and range of motion.

Your specialist may recommend physical therapy, RockTape, sports chiropractic care, massage therapy, functional rehabilitation, or icing the affected joint. They provide manipulation under anesthesia if you’d like to feel more relaxed and comfortable during your treatment. 

Your Spinal Correction Centers provider personalizes your treatment plan and may recommend multiple chiropractic sessions to maximize your results.
