Shoulder Pain in Erie?
We don't think much about our shoulders until they start to give us pain. Most people immediately start looking for the best chiropractic care in Erie because they are always using their shoulders to lift and extend their arms, to carry, wave and perform numerous other motions and tasks. The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body and as a result it is subject to a wide range of injuries and conditions.
Shoulder problems that go unchecked can lead to lifelong, debilitating issues. In order to properly treat the shoulder joint and achieve long-term relief it is important to identify the cause of shoulder pain. This article explains some of the common causes of shoulder pain and how chiropractic care can return the shoulder to functional health.
Shoulder Pain Treatment in Erie
While many people think of chiropractors for neck and back pain, they don’t always think of chiropractors when it comes to other joints. The shoulder is actually made up of multiple joints that work together to allow a wide range of motion to the arm. The problem can come from one of those joints being out of alignment, a problem with the muscles or ligaments in the area, and many times the actual problem is coming from the neck. Treatment will depend entirely on the source of the problem, so it is important that the cause of shoulder pain is accurately diagnosed.
Signs that you should see a chiropractor for your shoulder pain include shoulder pain that continues after a few days, decreased range of motion in the shoulder, inability to carry objects or weakness of the arm, any numbness or tingling in the area, and the feeling that something in the shoulder is “stuck.” More often than not, one of the joints that makes up the shoulder has moved ever so slightly out of place. This forces the muscles surrounding that joint to have to work harder to hold everything in place, creating tightness, pain, and even restriction of blood flow to other areas. Dr. Sam will closely assess the shoulder and decide the best course of treatment.
