Shoulder Pain Treatment and Relief with Your Auckland Chiropractor
Chiropractors are known for treating issues of the back and spine, including back and neck pain. However, chiropractic care can also be extremely beneficial to pain associated with the shoulders and extremities. When it comes to shoulder pain treatment and shoulder pain relief, Revolution Chiropractic offers a range of healing options.
Some of the most common types of shoulder pain include:
- Dislocated Shoulder
- Frozen Shoulder
- Shoulder Bursae
- Rotator Cuff Injury
- Strains & Sprains
Frozen shoulder is an exceptionally painful condition faced by clients that come to our chiropractic clinic. In addition to being very painful, it can also be debilitating and disabling. Ordinary activities like putting on a shirt or even brushing your hair can be an ordeal. It can also cause sleep disturbance and insomnia. Without proper treatment and intervention, frozen shoulder pain can persist for years.
The majority of frozen shoulder cases (as well as shoulder pain in general) are related to an irritation of the nerves in the upper back (thoracic spine) and/or lower neck. When shoulder pain has its origins in the back and spinal area, chiropractic care can be highly effective for shoulder pain treatment and shoulder pain relief.
Your chiropractor in Auckland is highly versed in a range of interventions for effective shoulder pain treatment and shoulder pain relief. A first rib subluxation is often at the root of a frozen shoulder and many other types of shoulder pain.
Treating Shoulder Pain
No matter what your specific shoulder issue, your chiropractor in Auckland will begin with a targeted diagnosis and determination of where the source of the irritation begins. Shoulder pain is usually due to an irritation of the nerves, tendons, muscles, ligaments or capsule area.
In some cases, the problem is located on the cervical spine or near the acromioclavicular joint. These areas will all be carefully examined to ensure an accurate diagnosis. The triceps muscle located in the upper arm may also be involved, as well as the subscapularis muscle underneath the shoulder blade.
Once a diagnosis of the precise physical cause is made, treatment for shoulder pain can begin. While relief will begin after the first adjustment, a series of chiropractic adjustments may be required to help your shoulder pain issue to resolve completely.
