The Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment For Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain is very common, and sometimes one of the most hard-to-treat ailments. Whether from an old shoulder injury, poor posture, or any other cause, many people simply live with their pain. But they don’t have to. Though shoulder injuries are one of the hardest injuries to recover from, and difficult to treat, chiropractic treatment offers a great solution to help decrease the pain in your shoulders.

Injuries aren’t the only reason that people have shoulder pain – chronic use, stress, and poor posture can also cause shoulder pain, and chiropractic treatment offers a way to help speed recovery and decrease pain in shoulders.

A good chiropractic treatment regimen can help you recover more quickly from injury, or reduce mysterious pain caused by stress, poor posture, or musculoskeletal misalignment.

How Chiropractic Treatments Can Help Treat Shoulder Pain

The entire musculoskeletal system is linked – even a slight misalignment can lead to pain in other parts of the body. The shoulder itself can become misaligned as well, as the tendons and ligaments that surround it can pull it unevenly, and yank it out of position.

    • A misalignment in the shoulder can lead to muscle spasms, inflammation, and pain, and adjustments can be performed to realign the joint and its surrounding tissues. These adjustments usually involve a speeder board or drop table piece – aligning the neck and shoulder can also help minimize the pain.


    • Rotator cuff pain usually results from old age, overuse of the shoulder, or an acute injury, and can be treated with techniques like electrical muscle stimulation, spinal adjustments, and hot and cold compresses.


    • Posture-related pain generally takes the form of a dull ache in the shoulders, and is usually caused by knotted muscles and misaligned joints. Some standard spinal realignment exercises usually help, but long-term treatment requires a change in posture.


  • Pinched nerves are some of the most painful shoulder injuries, causing tingling, needle-like pain in the shoulder that sometimes radiates into the arm. These can be treated with small spinal adjustments that take pressure off of the nerve.

While chiropractic treatments can’t take the place of physical therapy and medicinal treatment for acute injuries, they can be a great way to reduce shoulder pain from many different conditions, and promote better overall health, as well as a sense of well-being.
