Treating Shoulder Pain with Chiropractic Care
Shoulder pain is one of those common injuries that many people simply ignore or take over-the-counter painkillers for. It can seem like it’s not worthy of much attention and the discomfort may be minor enough that you don’t worry about it. However, chiropractors understand that pain and injury are not always what it seems to be on the surface. We look for underlying causes so that we can help you get rid of the pain as well as learn how to prevent future occurrences of the ailment.
Health Problems that Shoulder Pain May Indicate
If you haven’t recently experienced an impact or fall that may be causing the pain in your shoulder, there could be related health problems that are to blame. Some of the less obvious reasons that you may be feeling pain in your shoulder are:
- Arthritis (osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or septic arthritis
- Broken bone or fracture
- Gallbladder disease
- Liver disease
- Heart disease
- Joint disorders
- Spine disorders
Benefits of Chiropractic
One of the greatest benefits of chiropractic care is the focus on a more natural approach to healing. Chiropractors use a combination of hands-on spinal manipulation, nutritional counseling, lifestyle advice, physical therapy and other holistic modalities to create a comprehensive style of health management that seeks to give patients more control and choice over how to care for their own physical, mental and emotional well-being. This is mainly achieved by eliminating, as much as possible, any medicinal or surgical interventions and allowing the body, with proper chiropractic guidance, to rely on its own intuitive instinct for healing from within.
