Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

Suffering From Shoulder Pain?

chiropractic care for shoulder pain

Do you have shoulder pain in Naperville? The shoulder complex is the most mobile joint in the body and as a result, is subject to a wide range of injuries and conditions. The causes of shoulder pain are endless, but some of the most common reasons for pain in the shoulder include, neck and upper back problems, arthritis in the shoulder complex, abnormal motor patterns causing aberrant motion, participation in athletic events, and automobile accidents. Due to the wide range of causative factors, shoulder pain or abnormal motion in the joint may develop gradually or come on suddenly. Since the shoulder joint is used in the vast majority of activities that we engage in daily, any injury to the area should be taken seriously and treated appropriately. Even the most minor injuries should be treated early to help prevent it worsening.

Some symptoms of a shoulder injury or condition are more pronounced than others. Therefore, all symptoms involving the shoulder should be monitored carefully. Symptoms indicating the need for an immediate evaluation of the shoulder complex include; shoulder pain that lasts for more than a week, shoulder pain that goes away and then returns frequently, difficulty raising your arm above your head, trouble or pain when carrying objects, pain in the shoulder joint that becomes more pronounced in the evening, any obvious signs of damage to the joint such as bruising or swelling, or an unusual snapping or clicking sensation in the joint during movement.

As is true with most conditions, the most effective treatment is dependent on the exact cause of the problem. Therefore, obtaining an accurate diagnosis is a crucial step in the evaluation process. Align Health and Wellness is fully equipped and trained on the various techniques for diagnosing the cause of shoulder pain. Our Naperville chiropractors will utilize the clinical information provided from your history, advanced imaging techniques, and orthopedic procedures to determine the exact cause of your shoulder pain. The correct diagnosis will then be used to develop an individualized treatment plan.


Shoulder Pain in Naperville

The most appropriate treatment for your shoulder pain is often dependent on its cause. Fortunately, chiropractic care has been shown to be effective for most shoulder conditions. Our chiropractors at Align Health and Wellness will begin with an evaluation of the spine, concentrating on the neck region. The neck and upper back are the areas that all of the muscles and structures that control the shoulder joint originate from. If the communication between the nerves and the structures that they control is interfered with due to spinal misalignments, a cascade of problems can begin. In addition to the structures these nerves control, research has shown that many cases of shoulder pain are actually due to referred pain from the neck region. If the shoulder pain persists following the correction of spinal misalignments, our doctors at Align Health and Wellness are trained and have the experience necessary to provide adjustments to the shoulder complex. Additional manual and passive therapies are often utilized at our office in conjunction with the chiropractic care to help ensure a fast recovery. In any event, whether the pain is originating from the spine or is actually caused by damage to the shoulder joint, chiropractic care can provide a non-invasive and effective treatment option for the condition.
