Heal Your Painful Shoulder Problems Naturally Through Chiropractic

It can be very easy to take good health for granted.  You use your shoulders all day for almost every activity- lifting, reaching, driving, drinking, eating, playing, working… and well, we could go on forever.

We may not consider the beautiful role our shoulder health plays in our daily lives until we experience some sort of injury or painful condition; a reminder that we are in fact destructible.  While struggling with painful, even debilitating conditions like problems in your shoulder may be humbling, it is not something that you need to live with.


Some Causes of Shoulder Problems

As the most mobile joints in your body, you could imagine the amount of support your shoulders need from the surrounding ligaments, tendons, cartilage, nerves, etc.  Those support mechanisms in your body change their form when your bones and joints are out of alignment.  Not only does this cause inflammation and discomfort, it can affect anything that those “mechanisms” connect up to- forming a sort of domino effect within your body. 

So, in other words, when your joint supports get injured there can be quite a bit of pain coming from both the wounded area as well as any other connected parts of your body.  Shoulder pain can very well originate right there in the shoulder or even from a connected part of your spine!

Proper posture is very important to keep when fighting shoulder pain.  When your posture is not great, your shoulders and head shifts positions, causing those supporting muscles, tendons, and such to compensate for that change.  This causes all sorts of pain, discomfort, and shifting throughout your shoulders and spine.

Shoulder pain can come from joint or tissue irritation.  In fact, there are many conditions that can cause pain and problems in your shoulders:

Subluxations in your spine

Bursitis

Tendinitis

A tear in your rotator cuff

A frozen shoulder

Injury to the joints and ligaments

A torn labrum

Arthritis

Tendon rupture

Improper posture


Here are some signs that you need treatment for your shoulder problems:

Persistent and/or recurring shoulder pain

Troubles using your arm including raising your arm or lifting objects

An injury to your joint

Pain in your shoulder while sleeping or resting

Swelling, bruising, or infection in or around your shoulder


How Chiropractors Help Fix Shoulder Problems

Your chiropractor can provide you with relief and healing through gentle shoulder adjustments as well as adjustments to your neck and back.  Shoulder problems can most times have a full recovery through being vigilant in your treatment plan given to you by your chiropractor.  Your Advanced Chiropractic doctor in Knoxville will tell you if the pain in your shoulder can be healed naturally through chiropractic after your initial exam.

Ask your chiropractor about proper posture and tips for keeping your posture perfect even through long work days, whether it be a desk job or manual labor.  You should also ask about the alternative ways to heal and relieve your shoulder pain with exercises, therapies, stretching, ice, wet heat, and more.
