Chiropractic adjustments for Shoulder Pain
Do you need help with a shoulder problem?
We understand how debilitating shoulder pain can be, and are dedicated to helping you recover naturally.
Are you experiencing any of the following:
- Shoulder pain that persists more than a few days?
- Inability to carry objects using the affected arm?
- Swelling or bruising?
- A limited, or painful range of motion of your shoulder?
- Difficulty sleeping on your side?
- Difficulty exercising or performing daily activities?
Injuring your shoulder significantly limits your daily routine, causing pain during tasks as simple as carrying a box, picking up your shoes, reaching up into a cabinet, or doing any upper body exercise.
The many possible causes of shoulder pain include rotator cuff tears or strains, bruising, “frozen shoulder,” bursitis, and general wear and tear due to aging. An accurate diagnosis is critical for successful treatment.
Common causes of shoulder problems:
- Poor posture
- Prolonged sitting or inactivity
- Incorrect ergonomic setup
- Repetitive movements above your head
- Sporting injuries or physical trauma
- Overuse/repetitive strain
- Poor sleeping positions
Treating shoulder problems:
At Cooper Chiropractic, we take a holistic approach to treating shoulder conditions. We focus on the entire neuromusculoskeletal system, rather than simply the injury site. This includes the spine as a whole, extremity joints (hip, knee, etc), muscles, ligaments, tendons, and the nervous system.
The first step in helping you manage your problem is to make an accurate diagnosis. We achieve this with a comprehensive clinical history and a thorough physical examination, which includes neurological, orthopedic, and musculoskeletal tests, and if needed, further diagnostic investigations such as X-Rays.
Once we have gathered all the information required to make an accurate diagnosis, we will explain our findings to you, then tailor a treatment plan specific to your condition and goals. Because our team is dedicated to helping you manage your pain and reach your goals, if at any stage we determine that you would benefit more from another provider, we will refer you to someone who is best suited to your particular condition.
Prevention and education:
To help you achieve the optimal benefits from chiropractic care, our team will prescribe specific rehabilitation exercises just for you, offer sound ergonomic advice for your work or home environment, and provide the necessary tools to prevent future injuries.
