Chiropractic Care for Shoulder Pain
Regardless of the cause of your shoulder pain - whether it's bursitis, rotator cuff injury, tendonitis, or arthritis - treatment from a chiropractor can provide relief. Dr. Michael Druzbik and Dr. Jeena of Druzbik Family Chiropractic in Statesville, NC, can assess the source of your discomfort and suggest a course of action. Below are some of the most effective chiropractic treatments for shoulder distress.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy (LLLT) is a safe and effective treatment that can help relieve pain. It does this by stimulating the body's natural healing process, relieving inflammation, and repairing damaged tissue. Low-level lasers use specific wavelengths that inhibit nerve cells from sending pain signals to the brain. Furthermore, these light waves activate certain enzymes, which speed up cell repair and regeneration.
Exercises and Stretching
The shoulder is one of the body's most intricate joints, providing mobility and stability. It is surrounded by nerves, bursae, tendons, and other tissues, which may irritate or injure it if not taken care of correctly. Stretching is an efficient and cost-effective way to relieve pain in the back, neck, shoulders, and joints. Plus, it can increase your range of motion and mobility - so making stretching part of your routine will reap the rewards.
Soft Tissue Therapy
Pain in the shoulder region can be due to a variety of causes. Common ones include tendonitis, bursitis, and arthritis. Tendonitis, also known as rotator cuff tendonitis, is an overuse injury that causes inflammation of the tendons surrounding the shoulder joint. Ice, steroid injections, and stretching exercises can help heal this injury.
Arthritis of the shoulder can cause pain and limited movement. The two most common forms are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Our chiropractors can perform soft tissue massage and collaborate with you on an exercise program to reduce pain and disability while increasing the range of motion of your shoulder so you can resume living an active lifestyle.
Spinal Adjustments for Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain can be caused by several factors, including arthritis, trauma, and muscle tension from stress. In many cases, shoulder discomfort will go away after 6-12 months of treatment. If you have a shoulder injury or have been involved in an accident that has left you feeling pain, our chiropractors can perform spinal adjustments to loosen up joints and enhance your range of motion. We will also teach you exercises to strengthen muscles and tendons so the problem doesn't recur.
