For many individuals, shoulder pain is a familiar and unpleasant element of everyday life. Affecting all ages, the causes of pain in the shoulder can vary quite a bit, whether it be from a sports injury, overuse, a motor vehicle accident, arthritis, or another unfortunate cause. Shoulder injuries can become debilitating if left untreated without Shoulder Pain Treatment

Painful Shoulder Causes and Symptoms

The symptoms associated with shoulder pain are often described as sharp, dull, and aching, a feeling of pins and needles, weakness, and reduced range of motion. Regardless of the type of pain. Chiropractic care has been shown to help individuals restore their range of motion and decrease pain levels with the following causes

shoulder pain symptoms

Frozen shoulder

Adhesive capsulitis, often known as frozen shoulder, is a disorder that causes stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint. Symptoms and signs normally appear gradually, intensify with time, and then disappear within one to three years.

Polymyalgia Rheumatica Shoulder Pain

Polymyalgia rheumatica is an inflammatory condition that produces muscular stiffness and pain, particularly in the shoulders and hips. Polymyalgia rheumatica symptoms frequently appear suddenly and worsen in the morning.

Bursitis in Shoulders

Bursitis is a painful illness affecting the bursae, which are tiny, fluid-filled sacs that cushion the bones, tendons, and muscles surrounding your joints. Bursitis develops when the bursae in the joints become inflamed.

Shoulder Osteoarthritis

The most prevalent kind of arthritis, osteoarthritis, affects millions of individuals throughout the world. When the protective cartilage that cushions the ends of the bones breaks away over time, it causes this condition. Although osteoarthritis may affect any joint, it is most often seen in the hands, knees, hips, and spine.

Pinched Nerve in Shoulder

Pain radiating from the neck into the shoulder and arm is known as cervical radiculopathy. When bone spurs develop around the spinal discs, a nerve might get pinched. The “shock absorbers” between the vertebrae in your spine are these discs. Bone spurs are new bone structures that occur as discs deteriorate with age.

Shoulder Treatment Options

Chiropractic care is a great first-line treatment option for shoulder pain. Depending on the cause of the pain, the method of treatment can range quite a bit. At Health in Motion Chiropractic, we perform various treatments on shoulder problems such as:

Graston treatment

Graston treatment is one way to treat specific injuries by breaking up adhesions, scar tissue, and restrictions which will, in turn, allow more movement and decrease pain and tension.

Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Another form of treatment is through electrical muscle stimulation, which relaxes the muscles and can provide almost instant relief.

Chiropractic Shoulder Adjustment

For many, a simple shoulder adjustment or mobilization in the joint can do the trick. Sports and repetitive motion problems might also benefit from chiropractic treatment. Rotator cuff/shoulder injuries, Achilles tendinitis, frozen shoulder, golfer's/tennis elbow, hip, and shoulder bursitis are some of the most common sports and repetitive motion problems we treat.

Cryotherapy

Our office also offers local Cryotherapy, which is great alone or with one of our other therapies. Local Cryotherapy helps to reduce swelling, pain, and inflammation in the shoulder. It also helps to improve joint mobility, is more efficient than icing, and allows for faster recovery.

Therapeutic massage

At Health in Motion Chiropractic, we also offer therapeutic massage. Massage therapy can release the tightened fascia around locked up muscles, allow relaxation to contracted muscles, and improve blood flow to the tissues.

PRP Injection Treatments

Another fantastic option that many people have found great results from is PRP injection treatments, a form of regenerative therapy. 

 

PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma injection is a simple procedure where we use our own platelets and inject them back into the injured area. This stimulates an anti-inflammatory effect that decreases pain, inflammation and brings your body’s growth factors, cytokines, and healing enzymes to regenerate the damaged tissue without the need for drugs or surgery.

A PRP study compares patients who underwent platelet therapy for shoulder with cortisone injections and experienced more remarkable improvement in their pain than those who underwent corticosteroid injection treatment. They also found that nearly half of the corticosteroid group ended up pursuing surgery after the study concluded, while only around 3% of the PRP group sought surgery. This impressive comparison 

shows how valuable PRP therapy can be for individuals with shoulder injuries.
