Shoulder Pain Conservative Treatment Options

Shoulder pain is a common condition that chiropractors see across the state of Colorado. Our Birdsall Chiropractic Hand and Foot Clinic is no different and sees a variety of different shoulder conditions each week, with a variety of different causes. Pain can start due to sports injuries, falls, accidents, lifting heavy objects, or just gradually for no reason at all. Our chiropractor provides conservative treatment options to help relieve these painful symptoms and enhance mobility and functionality of the shoulder joint so that our chiropractic patients can enjoy daily activities without shoulder pain.

The shoulder joint and apparatus are more complex than people think. It involves the upper arm, the shoulder blade, and the clavicle. Pain can occur any in the bones and joints but also in the tendons and ligaments that attach to them. There are also bursa sacs, or fluid-filled sacs, in different areas that may become impinged or inflamed. Many people believe that their injury is to the rotator cuff because that is a common condition in the shoulder that is widely known. As you can see, there are many other structures in the shoulder joint that can become injured. These different structures can also be the result of an acute, or sudden, injury or just overuse causing wear and tear of certain areas.

Common Shoulder Conditions:

• Tendonitis
• Tears or Strains
• Sprains
• Arthritis
• Fractures
• Impingement
• Frozen Shoulder
• Bursitis
• Separated Shoulder (AC Joint Injury)
• And many others

Most shoulder injuries can be treated conservatively but it is extremely important to have a doctor of chiropractic perform a comprehensive examination to determine what is causing the shoulder pain or condition that is presenting. This will guide the chiropractor towards which option would be best for the patient or if a referral is needed to another specialist. Imaging can also be requested depending on the history of how the pain began and that may include X-Rays, MRIs, or CT scans. If conservative care is indicated, treatment options will include a variety of different approaches including chiropractic adjustments, myofascial release, rehabilitation exercises, activity modification, postural correction, and many other tools we have at our discretion.
