Shoulder Pain Treatment in Kennewick and Pasco
Your shoulder is a complex system of joints, tendons, and muscles that make it the most movable joint in the body. With this extended range of motion, however, comes an increased risk for shoulder pain and injury.
Shoulder pain typically originates from an overexertion, overuse, fracture, dislocation or pinched nerve. It can be one of the most limiting and debilitating problems because we use our arms so much. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms in your shoulder, you need to see a chiropractor as soon as possible to help diagnose and treat your pain.
- Numbness in the Shoulder
- Trouble raising your arm
- Frozen shoulders
- Trouble lifting and carrying items
- Spasms or twinges
- Burning sensation
While there are many reasons your shoulder may be hurting you, rotator cuff and shoulder impingement injuries are extremely common. Shoulder impingement occurs when, in moving the arm, the bones and rotator cuff rub against the tendons and the bursa, which causes pain and irritation. Anyone who repeatedly lifts their arms over their head — athletes and construction workers, for example — is at risk for this type of shoulder injury.
When you visit our Kennewick or Pasco offices for shoulder pain, we’ll perform a thorough examination to find out exactly what the problem is. You might be surprised to find that the problem may not even be in your shoulder at all, as referral pain from the back often presents itself in the shoulder.
Each of our qualified chiropractors has experience treating shoulder injuries. We see many athletes, body builders and fitness enthusiasts, among whom these types of injuries are very common. We’ll use a combination of stretching, strength exercises, realignment, deep tissue therapy and medication if necessary to restore the full use of your arm and eliminate your pain.
