Your shoulder joint is made up of numerous muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments that join together. Shoulder pain can result from an injury or joint wear and tear associated with aging. Whatever the cause, your Interactive Family Clinic specialist offers natural solutions for shoulder pain relief.
The following signs and symptoms may indicate pain associated with a shoulder injury:
Shoulder pain may subside on its own over time or linger. If shoulder pain doesn’t go away in a few days or is severe, seek treatment from the professionals at Interactive Family Clinic.
Shoulder pain might result from arthritis, wear and tear associated with aging, inflammation, fractures, tendinitis, or bursitis. You may also experience shoulder pain after a dislocation, tendon tear, shoulder impingement, or another injury. Sports, work, and automobile injuries are common causes of shoulder pain.
Your Interactive Family Clinic specialist examines your shoulder and reviews your medical history and symptoms to diagnose the cause of shoulder pain. They may use X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scans, or nerve function tests to determine the most appropriate treatment.
Your personalized shoulder pain treatment plan depends on the type of injury you have and its severity. Your chiropractor may recommend one or more of the following:
Realigning your spine using chiropractic adjustments helps alleviate pain throughout your entire body, including your shoulder joint.
Physical therapy helps strengthen tissues within and surrounding your shoulder joint. Your doctor recommends stretches and strengthening exercises to reduce pain and stimulate healing naturally.
Injecting your shoulder joint with steroids, platelet-rich plasma, or hyaluronic acid is a holistic way to ease pain without surgery or downtime.
Massaging muscles and other tissues near your shoulder can accelerate healing, relieve muscle tension, and alleviate nerve pressure for shoulder pain relief.
Cryotherapy uses cold technology to reduce inflammation, accelerate healing, and relieve shoulder pain without medications or surgery.
To optimize shoulder pain treatment results, your doctor may also utilize innovative cold laser therapy, ultrasound, or electrical stimulation to stimulate your body’s natural healing response.
