Shoulder Pain Causes
Several situations can cause shoulder pain. Busy, active adults, children in sports, and anyone who’s been in a car accident, can experience pulled muscles or misalign the shoulder joint. Chiropractic adjustment care can directly address these and many other causes of shoulder pain naturally, without painkillers, for long-lasting relief:
- Rotator cuff injury—If the muscles, ligaments or tendons stabilizing the shoulder joint get torn, sprained or strained, severe shoulder pain can result. Sometimes the pain will even spread to the upper back, neck and chest. Rotator cuff injuries are common for adults and children who play sports like baseball, softball, basketball, etc. Many people experience shoulder injuries in auto accidents as well.
- Frozen shoulder—Overuse injuries from poor ergonomics, past traumatic injury, diabetes and some autoimmune conditions can cause so much irritation in the shoulder as to make it immovable, which is where the term “frozen shoulder” comes from. The process of frozen shoulder can last from a few months to over a year without any treatment. Fortunately, chiropractic care can lessen the symptoms and accelerate the healing process significantly.
- Pinched Nerve—Sometimes, a nerve pinched by a misaligned vertebra in the spine can cause shoulder pain and immobility accompanied by neck and back pain.
- Osteoarthritis—Chronic inflammation in the shoulder joint from osteoarthritis can cause pain and “frozen shoulder” symptoms.
