Time to Get That Shoulder and Elbow Pain Checked Out
By Stephen R. Farris
Most any profession folks work in requires the use of our shoulders and elbows.
Professional athletes such as baseball pitchers constantly put their shoulders and elbows in motion to deliver a pitch. Fielders have to bend their elbows to field a ball, then their shoulders to make the throw, so it's no wonder athletes develop shoulder and elbow pain from time-to-time.
But you don't have to be an athlete to end up with shoulder and elbow pain. It can happen to everyday people from warehouse workers to the secretary at a financial firm, or even the stay-at-home parent. Any time we use our shoulders and elbows we could end up with pain.
Oftentimes we try to shrug off the pain and hope it goes away in a day or two. But usually it doesn't and eventually becomes lingering. If you don't get it checked out it could become a problem for other parts of your body, including your back and neck.
Pain left unchecked could also lead to time missed from work or school. It can make the simplest of tasks hard to do. But you shouldn't have to simply live with the pain.
So when shoulder, or elbow, pain hits you, instead of reaching for temporary relief from over-the-counter medication, or shrugging it off, visit with your local chiropractor for an all-natural, non-invasive, and non-addictive option to pain treatment and management.
Chiropractors help relieve pain by making adjustments in the spine to help lessen joint restriction and misalignments. This procedure can also be performed in other parts of the body, including the shoulder and elbow.
Some of the benefits you can get from chiropractic treatments include:
- Reduction in pain and discomfort
- Reduction in inflammation
- Better range of motion
- Improved flexibility
- An increase in muscle tone and strength
You'll be glad you decided to take the step to manage your pain. After all, the kids are counting on you to play catch with them, or build that new addition to the treehouse. Plus you won't get behind on the wife's honey do list either, and your co-workers will be glad especially if they depend on you to help get those special projects done correctly.
