Shoulder Pain and Chiropractic:  CORRECT CHIROPRACTIC CARE CAN ASSIST THROUGH SPINAL ALIGNMENT AND RESTORING MUSCLE FUNCTION

As chiropractors, we often see people with shoulder pain who have previously been to physical therapists, medical doctors, specialists, and even surgeons without success.  Why?  Let’s explain.  The shoulder is a mobile joint that depends LARGELY on the spine for support and thus function.  Think of the spine as the central support rod for the body and the arms as just the ‘hanging bits’ that attach to the support rod (like a puppets arms).  If the support rod is weak (i.e. if the spine is weak), the shoulders do not have a stable base of support to carry out their normal coordinated muscle movements.  This promotes dysfunction, pain, and degeneration.
Thus a weak and/or dysfunctional spine may be involved in problems like rotator cuff and muscle problems, frozen shoulder, problems lifting the arm above the head, repetitive strain injuries, and more.

THE CAUSE
Now as chiropractors we are not saying that the cause of all shoulder problems is the spine (of course you can have localized pathology in the shoulder from trauma or sudden overload), but the spine plays an integral part in shoulder function.  Problem areas could be as:
– the cervical spine (neck)
– the thoracic spine (in between shoulder blades)
– the lumbar spine/pelvis (lower back and hips)

Chiropractic helps address the cause of the problem in many shoulder pain cases which makes chiropractic a first-choice assessment for shoulder dysfunction.
