Causes and Treatment of Shoulder Pain
There are many possible causes of shoulder pain. Some of the most common shoulder pain injuries include sports-related accidents, auto accidents, tendon inflammation like tendinitis, and some types of arthritis. The shoulder pain may start suddenly, for example after an auto accident or a sports accident.
However, for many patients the pain begins slowly and grows worse and worse over time -- this is the case with arthritis or other chronic illnesses. If you don't get help for your shoulder pain, it can get increasingly painful until it becomes a permanent injury -- so seeking help is very important. With a permanent shoulder injury, it may become nearly impossible to use the shoulder normally. Beyond just pain and stiffness, you may find that your shoulder becomes immobile without the proper treatment.
Whether your shoulder pain is sudden or has been troubling you for years, our chiropractor in Lexington can help.
Our Chiropractor in Lexington Helps with Shoulder Pain
Our chiropractor in Lexington, Dr. Twit, chose chiropractics as a career because it allows a chance to help patients heal from the inside out. Chiropractics doesn't just address the pain -- it also gets to the source of the pain to correct it where it starts. Chiropractic care focuses on both pain relief and whole body wellness.
Through carefully controlled adjustments, Dr. Twit will ensure that the central nervous system is functioning at its peak. This helps with pain anywhere in the body, including the shoulder. Dr. Twit may also perform specific adjustments in the shoulder region. Shoulder adjustments always emphasize patient comfort.
In some cases, physiotherapy methods like heat, cold, electrical muscle stimulation, and ultrasound therapy may be helpful in alleviating shoulder pain and restoring full function to your shoulder and whole body. Many patients may benefit from a combination of chiropractic therapy types, all of which are totally non-invasive and pain-free. Chiropractic care for shoulder pain never involves the use of drugs. There is rarely any reason to use drugs when the body is capable of healing on its own (with some help from the chiropractic care provider, of course!)
