Shoulder pain can prevent people from enjoying everyday activities and fulfilling their work duties. The high mobility of the shoulder joint also makes this joint more challenging to help heal faster. Seeing a chiropractor can help treat a shoulder injury and help sports athletes get back to playing their game, and non-athletes get back to enjoying their life. If you are suffering from pain, call us for Barnes Chiropractic in Elkhart, IN, to schedule an appointment with our chiropractor.
Common Causes of Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain can result from an injury or normal wear and tear of the joint. Some of the most common causes chiropractic care patients complain about include frozen shoulder, dislocated shoulder, pinched nerve, tendonitis, shoulder bursitis, a shoulder injury to the rotator cuff, and arthritis. If left untreated, a sport injury can also cause severe shoulder pain.
How a Chiropractor Can Help
We can help ease shoulder pain using non-invasive and drug-free treatment options. Different chiropractic techniques to help treat an injury resulting include chiropractic adjustments, muscle exercises, stretching, and more.
What to Expect During a Chiropractic Appointment
Your first visit with us will involve discussing your medical history and a limited physical exam. Additionally, imaging tests may be ordered so our chiro doctor can better look at the inside of the shoulder’s structure. Next, we will help determine what is causing the joint pain and develop a pain management plan to treat the root cause of your pain. Then, we will discuss treatment plans. We can also show how sports athletes can benefit from chiropractic care.
Does Chiropractic Care Hurt?
Many first-time patients may wonder if they will experience any pain during chiropractic care. Regardless of what others have told you, seeking this kind of care is nearly painless. Some patients experience discomfort shortly after seeing our expert; however, this pain is usually no worse than what you may experience from a strenuous workout. The pain typically goes away within a few days.
