Whether you are in sports, a parent, student, etc... it doesn't matter because shoulder pain effects many more people than you may think. Below, you will find info on why you may be experiencing shoulder pain, shoulder pain treatment, and how chiropractic care can help you without the risks of surgery or drugs.
What's wrong with my shoulder? It’s a common question our chiropractors at Hogan Spine & Rehab hear. Maybe you've had an accident that caused clear and obvious trauma to this delicate joint. Maybe you're suffering from age-related degenerative issues within the joint capsule. Maybe you've been straining your shoulder tissues without even being aware of it. Whatever the cause, shoulder pain is not to be taken lightly. Your pain may disable you to the extent that you can't perform your job, play your favorite sport, or even find a comfortable position when at rest.
The good news is that you can most likely resolve or manage your shoulder pain without surgery. Here at Hogan Spine & Rehab, our chiropractors can administer a variety of non-surgical techniques to treat shoulder injuries and chronic pain conditions in Sugar Land, TX.
You may be in pain without having any idea what part of your shoulder is actually injured or ailing. This joint contains many working parts -- and those parts must work together if the entire joint is to function properly and without pain. Sometimes the damage is immediate and obvious -- as in a dislocation, when the upper-arm bone actually pops out of the socket. An acute soft tissue injury such as a tear in the rotator cuff (the set of tissues that mobilize the shoulder) can suddenly make any shoulder movement impossibly painful.
But other causes of shoulder pain can take their time, gradually getting worse and worse as degenerative inflammatory processes take their toll. Repetitive motion injuries are a case in point. Baseball pitchers have a 50 percent chance of developing shoulder pain during their careers, thanks to the constant overhand shoulder motions they must employ. Tennis, golf, or even working conditions that keep the shoulder working hard may lead to constant inflammation and strain, resulting in tendinitis, bursitis, and other painful problems.
Even ordinary wear and tear can eventually produce osteoarthritis in the shoulder. In some cases, shoulder pain doesn't stem from a shoulder problem at all; it's actually referred pain from the cervical spine.
Chiropractic care offers advantages over other shoulder treatment strategies. Drugs, for instance, can reduce pain and inflammation temporarily, but they can't correct the structural problems behind the pain. Surgery is usually unnecessary, not to mention costly, painful, and destructive to tissue.
Either chiropractor on our team, Dr. Hogan or Dr. Benson, can help your shoulder heal itself the natural way, freeing you from the need for painkillers or surgical procedures. Our advanced diagnostic techniques can reveal the exact cause and location of your shoulder pain, allowing us to treat your problem at its source. If you're an athlete of any kind, our FMS Screening Assessment can even identify faults in your functional movements that may be causing some of your problems.
