Quick Chiropractic Shoulder Pain Info
Are you an athlete or do you enjoy sports? What happens if you can no longer score a strike in your bowling league? If you’re experiencing shoulder pain in your daily life, it’s time to take a step back and evaluate the causes. Certain activities, health problems, and other events can cause shoulder pain. Our Daytona Beach Chiropractor can professionally assess your shoulder pain. Not local to Daytona Beach? We also have a Chiropractic office in West Volusia that can help relieve your symptoms.
What causes shoulder pain?
- Bursitis (inflammation of the bursa, sometimes in the shoulder)
- Tendinitis (inflammation of the tendon)
- Impingement syndrome (shoulder pain caused by a tendon rubbing on the shoulder blade)
- Frozen shoulder (extreme stiffness and immobility, various causes)
- Shoulder Dislocation
- Tears and other injuries
Don’t quit your bowling career just yet. The causes listed are easily treatable with chiropractic adjustment and chiropractic rehabilitation. Diagnostic examination is a simple process that tests range of motion in both shoulders, along with testing the muscles, reflexes, and sensations. Treatment can be easy and cost-effective. Once diagnosed, we can skillfully treat your pain and get you back to your daily life of activities, including that professional bowling stardom.
What should I do about my shoulder pain?
- Stretch! It can be as easy as (gently) stretching your muscles and tendons. Make sure you know the right stretches and the correct way to do them with a chiropractor’s advice. One effective treatment is Isometric Relaxation, or Isometric Exercise.
- Medication can be necessary, whether it’s over the counter painkillers such as Tylenol, or anti-inflammatory medications. If you’re not prone to taking medication, a highly effective treatment is Cold Light Therapy or Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT).
- Call to make an appointment with our exceptional, well trained Chiropractors in our Daytona Beach Chiropractic Office or in our West Volusia Chiropractor Office.
- Don’t wait. Seek treatment if your shoulder pain is frequent or recurring, if you cannot raise your affected arm, or if bruising occurs. Shoulder pain can be an indicator of a serious medical problem.
