What are the most common causes of shoulder pain?

Shoulder pain can stem from various factors, including injury, auto accidents, or underlying health conditions. However, the most prevalent causes of shoulder pain typically include rotator cuff injuries, frozen shoulder, arthritis, bursitis, or dislocation. In essence, shoulder pain can arise when the nerves, cartilage, or muscles in the shoulder have experienced damage, stress, or strain.

What does a "rotator cuff injury" entail, and how does it cause shoulder pain?

A rotator cuff injury refers to damage or strain that occurs in the four muscles or tendons surrounding the shoulder joint. This type of injury often leads to stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint.

How does a chiropractor treat shoulder pain?

One of the primary treatments chiropractors employ is spinal adjustment, which helps realign the spine and alleviate pressure on the spinal column. Additional therapies that can aid in managing pain and discomfort associated with shoulder pain may include massage, physical therapy, stretching exercises, electrical stimulation, or cold laser therapy.

How can I relieve chronic strain or soft tissue pain in the shoulder?

Engaging in at-home exercises can assist in alleviating pain and discomfort in the shoulder joint. However, consulting a chiropractor in Boca Raton will provide you with recommended exercises tailored to your specific injury or the underlying cause of the pain. The chiropractor may also suggest a combination of therapies, including massage, corrective exercises, soft tissue therapies, or heat/cold applications.
