For Shoulder and Elbow Pain, See Your Chiropractor

By Stephen R. Farris

Shoulder pain can be caused by a number of things. If you play sports and shoot or throw a ball, you could end up with a rotator cuff injury or a frozen shoulder. If you're more into contact sports, such as football, hockey, rugby, or even basketball, there's a chance you could fracture a bone.

There are three major bones in the shoulder; the humerus, scapula, and clavicle. You may have heard through your local or favorite sports news station about athletes in contact sports injuring their clavicle bone, more commonly known as the collarbone.

All of these bones in the shoulder connect to the joint called the glenohumeral, or shoulder joint, and is susceptible to injury. 

I remember when I was playing tournament softball every weekend back in the early to mid '90s. Those were fun times. I always looked forward to Friday's game at 5 p.m. I'd jump in my truck -- already loaded with my gear and uniform -- and head out on the road and arrive just in time some two hours away minutes before the game started. I quickly dressed, then headed onto the field without warming up, knowing that I would be throwing and running.

Of course, there were plenty of times I paid the price too, suffering hamstring and quadricep pulls, and the occasional frozen shoulder. While I had to live with the thigh injuries and let them heal on their own, at least I could visit my local chiropractor to get pain relief for my shoulder and elbow. Yes, I had pain in my elbow sometimes, especially after playing in the outfield all weekend in about 7-8 games. 

Yes, chiropractors do more than dealing with back pain, they can also help with pain relief in your knees, ankles, feet, elbows, wrists, neck, and shoulders as well.

Whether you're a weekend warrior or you have shoulder and elbow pain due to the kind of work you do, you can benefit from chiropractic care. Here's what it can do for you:

  • Reduce your pain and discomfort
  • Decrease inflammation
  • Improve your range of motion
  • Improve your flexibility
  • Increase your muscle tone and strength
