Infinite Healing Center Offers Help For Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain can be caused by a number of different factors. Injuries, repetitive actions and degenerative disease can result in ongoing discomfort and problems with mobility. In addition, the pain, stiffness and poor range of motion can have a negative impact on the ability to work and can keep you from enjoying recreational activities. At Infinite Healing Center in Mesa, AZ, we can provide a variety of chiropractic techniques to help shoulder dysfunction.
Symptoms of Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain can be a dull ache or sharp twinges on movement. Individuals may experience an inability to raise the arm normally or may have difficulty with forwarding and back movements. You may experience pain when sleeping on your side or notice instability in the joint or weakness when using the arm. Symptoms may worsen over time.
Causes of Shoulder Pain
Simple sprains and overuse are often the cause of shoulder pain. Repetitive actions can cause strain on the structures that support the shoulder joint, leading to tendonitis and bursitis. Injury to the shoulder, such as from auto accidents or athletic injuries can also cause chronic shoulder pain of varying intensity. Arthritis can affect the shoulder joint, with pain and impaired function. Shoulder pain can also result from dysfunction in the upper spine and neck, which then distributes the abnormal function into the shoulder.
Chiropractic Techniques Can Help Relieve Shoulder Discomfort
Your chiropractor can utilize a number of techniques to aid shoulder pain. Manual adjustment can be key to recovery, re-aligning the vertebrae to allow normal movement. A number of soft tissue techniques help to relieve inflammation and improve range of motion. Heat and ice relieve soreness and swelling, to reduce discomfort. Corrective exercise helps to strengthen supporting muscles to allow smooth movement and flexibility. Nutritional support helps to facilitate healing. Your Mesa chiropractor can also advise you on lifestyle changes to prevent re-injury of the shoulder joint.
