Shoulder pain can be very debilitating and cause you to miss time from work. It also can reduce your general enjoyment and activity levels throughout the day until it heals and the pain goes away. Back on Track Chiropractic in Birmingham, AL offers non-invasive chiropractic treatments that effectively reduce pain while enhancing the healing process. Following are the answers to a few questions our chiropractor frequently receives regarding shoulder pain.
What are Common Causes of Shoulder Pain?
Many people shoulder injuries that cause a great deal of pain such as dislocated shoulders, broken collar bones, rotator cuff injuries, sprains, and a wide range of other injuries. No matter the exact cause, the symptoms often are similar and include pain while moving the arm and shoulder, limited range of motion, and a weakened shoulder.
What are the Benefits of Visiting a Chiropractor?
Rather than masking your pain with prescription medication or performing invasive surgery, our chiropractor will identify and address the root cause of your discomfort. Our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine what is causing your shoulder pain before creating a chiropractic care plan to address it. The services we recommend will depend on the severity of your shoulder pain and what is causing it.
What Kinds of Chiropractic Treatments Are Available?
Our chiropractor offers deep tissue massage, musculoskeletal manipulation, trigger point massage, electrostimulation, and several more treatment options. The idea is to pinpoint the afflicted area and encourage natural healing by stimulating the shoulder in several ways. Trigger point massage can help to loosen your sore muscles and connective soft tissues. Manipulating your musculoskeletal structure can help to line up your muscles, ligaments, and the bones that make up your shoulder to relieve any pressure and soreness. Electrostimulation can help to flood the afflicted shoulder with red blood cells and oxygen. That helps to flush toxins out and provides beneficial iron and oxygen to speed up the healing process.
