Chiropractic Treatment For Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain causes & treatments
Some of the major causes of shoulder pain and how we treat them at our Chatswood chiropractic clinic.
We live in a society that is increasingly more inactive and sits at computers longer than ever. As a result of such inactivity and postural demands, we inadvertently put more pressure on muscles and ligaments in the upper back and shoulders, leading to pain, stiffness and dysfunction.
Chiropractic treatment aims to restore optimal biomechanical function, reducing the postural stresses placed on the spine and shoulders. Treatment at the clinic provides pain relief, releases built up tension and strengthens the spine and shoulders.
Rotator Cuff Pain
The rotator cuff is a collection of muscles which provide important stability and movement to the shoulder joint. These muscles are responsible for many movements that lift, pull, push and rotate the shoulder and arm. Due to the intricacies of the shoulder complex, these muscles are prone to irritation and dysfunction which may lead to pain and stiffness.
The first step in addressing rotator cuff problems is to identify which muscles and where the irritation is originating from. Treatment at the clinic then provides pain relief, improves the mobility and strengthens the rotator cuff to reduce any further injury.
