Shoulder/Arm Pain

Shoulder and/ or arm pain is common. The shoulder is the most mobile joint of the body and is therefore vulnerable to injury. There are many causes of shoulder pain. It is important to make an accurate diagnosis of the cause of your symptoms so that appropriate treatment can be directed at the cause. Common conditions include bursitis, rotator cuff tendonitis or tears, frozen shoulder or shoulder instability. Arm pain can include such causes as elbow tendonitis, elbow bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, osteoarthritis of the hands, joint sprain or even nerve compression from the neck.

Chiropractors are well trained in the diagnosis and treatment of these inuries and conditions. In additional to chiropractic manipulation, your chiropractor may recommend other types of treatment for relieving your shoulder or arm pain. These may include moist heat, ice packs, massage, ultrasound, traction, or stretching and strengthening exercises. Sometimes, cases must be referred to a specialist to consider surgery, casting or bracing. Chiropractic is effective in the majority of cases. But if the condition will not respond to conservative chiropractic care, the proper referral to a specialist is made.
