See Your Chiropractor for Your Shoulder Pain

By Stephen R. Farris

One of the most used parts of the body, besides the back and legs, is the shoulder. Our shoulders come into play when lifting, throwing, and reaching for things above our head. It's no wonder that the shoulder succumbs to occasional pain every now and then. In some cases, your shoulder pain could result in you losing time on your job or keep you from performing everyday tasks in and around the house. Most shoulder pain is caused from:

  • Avascular necrosis
  • Brachial plexus injury
  • Broken arm
  • Broken collarbone
  • Bursitis
  • Shoulder dislocation
  • Heart attack
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Separated shoulder
  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Sprains
  • Torn cartilage
  • Ruptured tendon

These are just a few things that can be the cause of shoulder pain. Most folks will try to rest and hope the pain goes away. When it doesn't, they may seek over-the-counter medication to ease the pain. Even further, they may consult with their primary physician, who will probably prescribe stronger medication for the pain. 

Other times, folks may try heat/ice treatment, along with low-impact exercise movements. Depending on the type of shoulder pain, this type of treatment usually helps, plus it's an all-natural alternative to OTCs and prescription medications that could lead to addiction.

Another all-natural alternative for treatment of shoulder pain is to visit your local chiropractor. Chiropractors do more than just crack backs. Doctors of chiropractic use a treatment called spinal manipulation, which is an all-natural, non-invasive, and non-addictive procedure, using a gentle, hands-on approach to help reduce joint restrictions in the spine and alleviate the pain you're feeling. This method can be used on other joints in the body as well. 

Your local chiropractor, such as the ones that can be found at The Joint Chiropractic, may suggest certain exercises you can do in between treatments, as well as offer nutritional tips that can help reduce pain. 

The goal is to get you pain-free so that you'll be able to return to work and your normal, daily activities.

And remember, whether you're at home or traveling, The Joint Chiropractic has more than 600 nationwide locations to provide you with chiropractic care. No appointment is necessary, so just walk right in and ask to speak to one of their doctors of chiropractic on their staff. No need to worry about hassling with your insurance company, as The Joint has several payment options available to fit any budget.
