How Chiropractor Care Treats Shoulder Pain

By Madhusudhan Tammisetti

Shoulder pain may be caused due to a variety of factors, including sports injuries, vehicle accidents, and serious illnesses such as arthritis. Even if you don't know the source of the pain, you must still look into how chiropractic care may assist you in relieving pain. Some of the shoulder pain causes include arthritis, frozen shoulder, poor posture, and dislocation.


It affects more than 50 million people in the US. It's a degenerative illness with a delayed beginning that worsens with time. Arthritis may affect any of the body's joints, unlike a frozen shoulder, shoulder bursitis, or shoulder dislocation. Inflammation causes it, and when it starts affecting the joints of the shoulder, it creates stiffness and pain.

Frozen Shoulder

Adhesive capsulitis is referred to as frozen shoulder in layman's terms. The most common signs of frozen shoulder include joint stiffness and discomfort and a reduction in range of motion.

It's typically a secondary ailment, meaning it's the outcome of something that happened before. Frozen shoulder may occur due to a stroke, a catastrophic shoulder injury, or a recovery from medical issues that prevent you from moving the shoulder for a lengthy period. This causes joint capsule scarring, which causes pain, although it is treatable over time.


A shoulder dislocation may occur in a variety of ways. When the bone of the upper arm, which links to the socket of the shoulder, slips out of position, dislocation happens. Signs of shoulder dislocation localized pain, arm weakness, and pain while holding the shoulder in a certain posture.

Chiropractor Care for Shoulder Pain

Chiropractic care, regardless of the source of the shoulder pain, is likely to help lessen or perhaps eliminate the symptoms. While certain diseases, such as arthritis, may not be cured, they may be controlled well over time. It takes time to heal a dislocation, but most people recover completely. Even though complete healing takes time, several chiropractic adjustments may help ease the pain while you wait.

If bad posture is the cause of the shoulder pain, the chiropractor may most likely prescribe a spine adjustment and some remedial actions you may have to do to improve the posture over time. Based on the source of the shoulder pain, there is a range of chiropractic care options.

Massage Therapy

Some soft tissue disorders, such as shoulder bursitis may benefit from massage therapy. A chiropractor, who knows how to treat soft tissue disorders, may help you in this regard. An inexperienced massage therapist may end up causing more harm to the region.

Another issue that may benefit from massage therapy is frozen shoulder. Chiropractors are skilled in precise motions and manipulations to treat soft tissue problems, and they may help with inflammation and pain.
