If you’re feeling the debilitating effects of shoulder pain, chances are you’re more than ready for pain relief. By learning more about the causes of shoulder pain, you can make wise decisions concerning your treatment. Here are some common questions we often receive at Boca Health & Wellness Center in Boca Raton concerning shoulder pain causes, symptoms, and treatment.

What causes shoulder pain?

Numerous factors can contribute to shoulder pain, ranging from acute injuries to muscle overuse to chronic conditions. Some common causes include osteoarthritis, inflammation, compressed shoulder muscles, labral (cartilage) tears, rotator cuff tears, and dislocated shoulders. You can also experience shoulder pain from whiplash or compression of nerve roots in your spine.

Who’s at risk of shoulder pain?

Although anyone can develop shoulder pain, you’re at greater risk if you habitually have poor posture or perform tasks that require extensive heavy lifting or repetitive movements. If you play sports, you’re at risk of shoulder pain due to sports injuries.

Besides pain, what other symptoms might I experience?

In addition to pain, you may experience soreness, inflammation, neck or shoulder stiffness, and numbness or tingling sensation in your arms or hands.

How can a chiropractor help with shoulder pain?

Our Boca Raton chiropractor specializes in the treatment of musculoskeletal issues. As most forms of shoulder pain deal with musculoskeletal issues, you can find shoulder pain relief through chiropractic care.

Pain caused by misalignments in your shoulder or back can be eased through chiropractic adjustments. Adjustments and spinal manipulation restore proper alignment to your neck, shoulder, and spine to relieve pressure from spinal nerves. Soft tissue massage can help ease muscle tension and circulate blood to afflicted areas to expedite recovery from shoulder injuries. We may also recommend corrective exercises to restore shoulder flexibility and mobility.
