Shoulder Pain Relief
Many types of chronic shoulder joint pain respond well to chiropractic. They include discomfort that develops through the wear and tear of daily life. An example is a pain when lifting the arm. There are several causes of shoulder pain
. One of the most common is shoulder pain from rotator cuff injury.
The rotator cuff is a mesh of muscles and tendons that covers the upper arm bone (acromion) where it meets the shoulder blade.
Shoulder pain from the rotator cuff has three main causes:
, in which the tendons in the cuff are irritated or damaged
which is an inflammation of the fluid sac (bursa) between the rotator cuff and the bone on top of your shoulder (acromion)
, which is inflammation or pressure placed on the tendons or bursa
Your shoulder joint pain may also be caused by a cartilage tear, an injury in the padding around the joint. All of these common conditions involve muscle, cartilage or tendons.
Pinched Nerve in Shoulder
Shoulder pain when lifting the arm can also be caused by a pinched nerve in the shoulder. This condition stems from irritation or compression of the nerve that runs from the spine to the shoulder.
The culprit in shoulder arm pain could be a bone spur compressing on a spinal disc
. Our doctors can give you a shoulder pain diagnosis and tell you for sure.
Shoulder problems can come on suddenly as the result of trauma or gradually with age. In the skilful hands of our doctors, we have the potential to improve your range of motion and offer drug-free pain relief.
