I play sports on a regular basis and one day I tore some muscle tissue in my left shoulder while playing basketball. My shoulder swelled and I could barely move my arm. I had already been a patient of Dr. Daniels for unrelated back pain and knew she was the lady for the job. She helped me to a full recovery, and today I am back on the court, good as new! I will always feel safe in trusting Dr. Daniels for my chiropractor and sports injury needs.
Chiropractic Care for Shoulder Pain
In many cases the cause of these symptoms reside in the neck and upper back regions along with the surrounding muscles. If left untreated, the irritation and inflammation continues to grow, causing the pain to become worse. And, as the pain increases, the arm and shoulder movement will begin to decrease.
Work at a Desk?
Poor posture and repetitive activities can lead to tightness, weakness, and pain in the muscles of the shoulder, back, neck, arms and hands. Tightness and nagging discomfort will be felt worsening as the day progresses. Headaches or numbness and tingling in the arms and hands may also be present. Those who have office jobs, poor monitor or keyboard placement, and spend periods of time at a computer will often experience this.
Chiropractic adjustments and soft tissue treatment is utilized to restore function and mobility of the spinal joints and muscle. Postural training, stretching and strengthening protocols are used to address weak and overused muscles. Helpful Tip: Try sitting at the edge of your chair with your back straight, shoulders rolled back, palms facing upward in your lap, and chin tucked. If this relieves the tension felt you may be experiencing this condition.
