Shoulder Problems

Your shoulder joints can be affected by injury, degenerative changes and muscle imbalance. Chiropractic can help with all of these problems.

Chiropractic care can help shoulder pain

Chiropractic care can help shoulder pain by adjusting the joints. Chiropractors are trained to find and adjust the cause of your pain by identifying misalignment in the neck, shoulders and spine. Once these areas have been adjusted, they may be more comfortable allowing you to move without pain.

Chiropractors can also help relieve shoulder problems by removing pressure on nerves that are causing discomfort in your arms and hands. Improper positioning or stress placed on these nerves may result in muscle spasms as well as numbness or tingling sensations. In addition, chiropractic adjustments can reduce inflammation which will allow for increased blood flow throughout the body including any area that is experiencing soreness due to injury or overuse. This increased circulation is essential for healing injured tissue back into its normal state so it doesn’t continue hurting after an incident occurs (such as lifting something heavy).

Finally, chiropractic treatment reduces stress placed upon muscles which contributes significantly towards resolving this issue because muscles become tight when they’re under strain due to intense activity such as lifting weights incorrectly while exercising or playing sports activities such as tennis/golf etc., but not just those activities either; even everyday tasks like carrying groceries upstairs can cause soreness if done incorrectly which makes sense considering how much weight each person carries around every day!

Your shoulder joint is a ball and socket joint.

Your shoulder joint is a ball and socket joint. This means that the head of your upper arm bone (the humerus) fits into a rounded socket in your shoulder blade (scapula). Ball and socket joints are the most mobile joints in the body, allowing for great movement. However, this mobility comes at a price—ball and socket joints are also prone to injury and arthritis.

Ball and socket joints allow for a wide range of motion but they do not have much stability. The head of your upper arm bone can move out of position easily if you overstretch it or twist it in an awkward way. This movement causes pain because it puts strain on surrounding muscles, tendons, ligaments, bursae (soft tissue between bones), nerves and blood vessels when you use your arms too much during activities such as throwing balls or lifting heavy objects like suitcases onto high shelves!

You may have heard doctors refer to ‘painful arc syndrome’ when describing injuries involving this type of joint: when too much force passes through them without being absorbed properly by surrounding muscles then severe pain results which lasts days after initial trauma occurs even though no serious damage has occurred yet.”

A shoulder injury or abnormality to the shoulder joint may result in inflammation of the bursae causing pain and discomfort.

When a bursa becomes swollen and painful, it is called subacromial bursitis. The cause of this condition is usually overuse or injury to the shoulder joint.

Subacromial bursitis can also be caused by an infection known as “Pseudomonas” infection that is associated with long-term use of steroid injection into the joint.

The following are common causes of shoulder pain:

  • Fracture (detached bone) in the shoulder joint
  • Scapular winging (sagging or drooping on one side of the scapula) caused by muscle weakness or imbalance on one side from trauma to muscles, tendons or ligaments around your shoulder blade – also known as “frozen shoulder”. This condition causes pain when trying to lift your arm upwards above your head, especially when bending forward at the waist while reaching back towards your hip with both hands together behind you during exercise class activities like kickboxing/kettlebell swings etc).

Shoulder impingement is the most common type of shoulder disorder and can develop in anyone but is most common in athletes.

Shoulder impingement is the most common type of shoulder problem and can develop in anyone, but it’s most common in athletes. Shoulder impingement occurs when the tendons or muscles that cross your shoulder joint rub against the bones at the front of your shoulder. This may happen because of overuse, muscle strain or trauma.

When you have a sports injury like a sprained ankle, it’s easy to see what happened to cause your pain—but if you have a more complex condition like osteoarthritis (OA) or rheumatoid arthritis (RA), it can be harder to pin down exactly why something hurts. Both RA and OA involve inflammation; RA involves extra-articular joints as well as joints within bones themselves, while OA affects only articular cartilage (the tissue that covers bone ends).

The most common causes of pinched nerves in the neck are whiplash injuries, sports injuries, muscle strain or overuse, and degenerative conditions such as arthritis. If you suffer from one of these or another injury to your neck that’s caused by an accident or repetitive motion (like typing on a computer), let’s talk about how chiropractic care can help you recover.

A pinched nerve in the neck is caused when spinal discs get compressed between two vertebrae. This compression causes irritation to the surrounding tissues which can lead to pain radiating down into your arms and hands. In many cases, a pinched nerve in one area will cause pain in other areas as well because it sends signals to surrounding nerves that mimic normal muscle function while also blocking them from sending messages back up through the spine.

Regular chiropractic treatment can help prevent damage to your joints by keeping them aligned and allowing you to maintain your range of motion.

  • Chiropractic treatment can help relieve pain and discomfort.
  • Chiropractic treatment can help you recover from a sports injury, such as an ankle sprain, knee strain or shoulder dislocation.

Chiropractic care is a great way to keep your body healthy and pain-free. Whether you have an injury or just want to prevent future problems, regular visits can help protect your joints from damage.
