For Shoulder or Elbow Pain, See Your Chiropractor
By Stephen R. Farris
It never fails. Each week you hear that an athlete is diagnosed with a shoulder or elbow injury. Most recently -- for this Texan -- it was Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott who, after coming off ankle surgery late last season, suffered a shoulder injury during training camp.
Shoulder injuries can be painful and could cause you to miss time away from work; such was the case for Prescott as he sat out the remainder of training camp and the team's preseason games.
While his injury was sports-related, shoulder or elbow injuries can happen to anyone no matter if you're in your backyard throwing a football or raking leaves. It can even sneak up on you when you least expect it, often starting with stiffness and/or soreness.
This should be a sign to seek some form of treatment, such as visiting your local chiropractor.
Chiropractors not only treat back, neck, and joint pain, but also things like shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee, ankle, and foot pain. Chiropractors use a gentle, all-natural, noninvasive, non-addictive form of therapy by adjusting the joints in your spine to help return them to proper alignment, thus reducing joint restrictions and increasing your flexibility and mobility.
If you have shoulder or elbow pain, chiropractic can be beneficial by:
- Reducing pain and discomfort
- Decreased inflammation
- Improved range of motion
- Improved muscle tone and strength
Even better news is the all-natural part to the treatment process, eliminating the use of over-the-counter and/or prescription medications, which could lead to addiction.
The bottom line is that chiropractic therapy can help you get the pain relief you need due to shoulder and elbow pain, as well as back, neck, and joints.
