What Are the Causes of Shoulder Pain?
There’s not just one cause of shoulder pain. The type of treatment depends on what the problem is. To provide the best care for you, Dr. Lee will get to the root of your issues and create a personalized shoulder pain relief plan.
There are many causes and types of shoulder pain:
Rotator Cuff Issues
Your rotator cuff is a series of four muscles that stabilize your shoulder joint. If you injure or tear these muscles through overuse or trauma, it can limit your movement and function. Your muscles might become tight, weak, or overstretched, leading to painful spasms. Surgery is sometimes necessary for an injury involving torn or severely damaged rotator cuffs. But luckily, Dr. Lee can usually stimulate healing with a mix of physical therapy, and chiropractic care.
There are nerves all throughout your neck and back. If you have a spinal misalignment or herniated disc, sometimes, these nerves can become pinched by the spine. Usually, this causes pain that feels like it’s radiating from the neck or upper back to the shoulder. By correcting the misalignment with chiropractic care, strengthening the surrounding muscles with therapeutic exercises, you can find pinched nerve pain relief.
Chiropractor Dr. Lee can diagnose the underlying causes of your shoulder pain through extensive examination of the symptoms, x-rays, and in more severe cases, an MRI. Usually, rotator cuff injuries, frozen shoulders and pinched nerves respond very well to a drug-free, non-invasive combination of chiropractic care and physical therapy. If your case is severe, however, Dr. Lee can refer you to a qualified orthopedic specialist if necessary.
