Dr. Jones helps patients who come to Jones Chiropractic and Acupuncture for natural pain relief due to a shoulder injury or another problem. Treatments include accident and sports injury treatment and chiropractic care.
What Causes Pain in the Shoulder?
The shoulder is a large ball-and-socket joint that allows a wide range of arm and shoulder motion. However, the structure is quite prone to injury and pain even from day-to-day activities such as lifting or reaching overhead. Pain can stem from an injury to the muscle, tendon, ligament, or cartilage or an issue with the arm bone, collarbone, or shoulder blade. Acute or chronic pain often results from the following:
- Repetitive movement
- Heavy lifting or over-training
- Scarring from an old injury
- Referred pain from the neck or upper back
- Acute shoulder injuries from a fall, direct blow, or auto accident
Types of Shoulder Injuries and Conditions
Injuries or conditions a chiropractor can help treat include shoulder instability, soft tissue strains, sprains, or tears, and shoulder fracture or dislocation. Chiropractic care is also effective for inflammation and impingement of the bone or soft tissue.
Common Shoulder Pain Symptoms
Our chiropractic physician will note your symptoms during a detailed physical exam and an x-ray of the shoulder. Common symptoms include a sharp searing or a dull nagging pain that persists or comes and goes. The shoulder may appear deformed, swollen, or tender. You may have difficulty bearing weight or doing things that require using the arm or putting pressure on the shoulder joint. Stiffness, numbness, tingling, or weakness may also occur.
Shoulder Pain Treatment by Our Evansville Chiropractor
Traditional treatment options for pain affecting the shoulder include painkillers and surgery in some cases. With chiropractic care, you won't have to take drugs or go under the knife. Dr. Jones can adjust the shoulder to correct issues like dislocation or impingement, providing significant pain relief and encouraging natural healing. Chiropractic adjustments also help reduce inflammation linked to arthritis, bursitis, and soft tissue injury.
You should be able to use your arm and shoulder with less discomfort as you heal and recover. Note that recovery time depends on the underlying problem. Regardless, we can help speed up healing for a sports injury, accident injury, and soft tissue damage and help you rebuild, strengthen, and restore range of motion with our services.
