Shoulder Pain Treatment with Your Broomfield Chiropractor
In addition to back and neck pain, your chiropractor in Broomfield and Westminster Lifetime Health & Wellness can also assist with upper body and extremity pain. Shoulder pain is one of the most common pain types we see at our Broomfield and Westminster chiropractic clinic.
Shoulder pain is most often connected with an irritation of the nerves in the thoracic spine, or the upper back and lower neck area. A first rib subluxation is a common cause of frozen shoulder and numerous other shoulder pain types.
There is typically irritation of the shoulder capsule area, tendons, ligaments, muscles and nerves as well. Fortunately, chiropractic care can be highly effective in treating shoulder issues that originate from a misalignment or subluxation in this area.
Common Types of Shoulder Pain
- Frozen Shoulder
- Dislocated Shoulder
- Rotator Cuff Injury
- Shoulder Strains & Sprains
- Shoulder Bursae
Shoulder pain is often caused by not warming up appropriately before strenuous activity. It can also be caused by repetitive activity or overuse.
Shoulder pain can disrupt your life and make it difficult to think of much else. It can also affect many of the daily activities you take for granted. Just putting on a shirt or jacket can be painful. Shoulder pain can also cause sleep disturbances. It affects quality of life dramatically, and conditions like frozen shoulder can persist for many years if they are not addressed.
The best ways to avoid shoulder pain and maintain its health and integrity include:
- Stretch and limber up before engaging in upper body activity
- Ensure your shoulder is tracking property when engaging in strenuous or repetitive movements
- Maintain good posture while walking, sitting and engaging in sport activities
