Shoulder Pain

Your shoulder is one of the most unstable joints in your entire body, so shoulder pain is a common problem for many people.  The shoulder is held together by a complex system of muscles and connective tissues called the rotator cuff.       

Unfortunately, injuries to the rotator cuff are a frequent cause of shoulder pain. A common cause of rotator cuff tears is the dislocation of the shoulder joint, where the ball-shaped end of your upper arm bone comes partially or completely away from the socket in your shoulder blade.

Shoulder pain can be due to wear-and-tear damage from overuse or repetitive strain. Tendonitis is a typical example of this type of shoulder pain, in which tiny tears in the tendon build up over time.  Another cause is arthritis. This develops when the cartilage on your bones wears down, causing inflammation, stiffness, and pain.

Chiropractic care works by realigning your shoulder joint so it can function properly.  This can help increase your range of motion and decrease pain and discomfort.
