In most cases, shoulder pain is associated with other underlying issues. That means that you require a treatment plan which targets the root cause of the pain to achieve relief and encourage healing. At Dyker Heights Family Chiropractor in Brooklyn, NY our chiropractor works diligently to diagnose and treat all shoulder pain sources. We help our patients achieve full relief from their pain by using different types of non-invasive and non-surgical treatment therapies customized to suit each individual’s specific needs.
Common Causes of Shoulder Pain
In case you experience chronic or sudden pain, we will first examine your shoulders and then your wrist, elbow, and spine to determine the source of your pain. Here are some examples of common causes of shoulder pain that we witness at our practice:
Most athletes use their shoulders for repetitive and rigorous movement, which exerts additional pressure on bones and tissues. In time, this results in inflammation of the shoulders. Hitting, swimming, catching, and throwing are all activities that can cause repetitive shoulder injuries.
Arthritis is a degenerative condition that affects joints, including the shoulder. If the cartilage in a person’s shoulder wears out (osteoarthritis), shoulder bones can rub together leading to weakness, pain, and swelling.
How Our Chiropractor Treats Shoulder Pain
If you visit our practice for pain treatment, we will request your full medical history. This helps our chiropractor fully understand your symptoms, how they have affected your quality of life, and when they started to develop. After that, we will perform a complete physical exam to help us design a comprehensive rehabilitation program that will address your issue. Some of the treatments that may be included in that plan are:
Through spinal manipulations, we can minimize stress placed on the shoulder. During spinal manipulation, low amplitude, high velocity, and controlled thrusts on the spine are performed to return it to its fully functioning position.
Soft Tissue Manipulation
This technique involves the use of different types of handheld chiropractic equipment. Through this technique, we can eliminate the fascial and scar tissue restrictions found in the tendons, ligaments, and muscles. The techniques help in reducing your pain while ensuring that your body returns to its full range of motion and flexibility.
To help patients to attain their wellness goals, we provide different types of stretches and exercises which support our in-practice therapies. Establishing body balance and strength contributes to health and lifestyle success.
