A Chiropractor for my Shoulder Pain? I Thought they only Treated Spines?
Most people don’t realize that chiropractors are fully trained in assessing and treating shoulder pain. There are numerous adjusting and manual therapy techniques that are often required to regain full joint mobility of these structures. Unfortunately, this is often overlooked in many clinical settings, which does not allow a full functional return to the affected extremity. Make sure to let us know if you have any extremity joint issues.
How are they Adjusted/Treated?
Just like any other joint in the body, the extremities have very specific functions and ranges of joint motion. An assessment is made of the injured area, and very specific adjustments and other recommendations are applied to facilitate a full recovery.
Conservative manual therapy, including manipulation and soft tissue therapy, is first-line care for shoulder pain. Our chiropractors and physiotherapists have specialized training to effectively and efficiently do this form of treatment. This, combined with other interdisciplinary care if necessary, will be organized under one roof at National Spine & Wellness to optimize your recovery.
