True Potential Chiropractic Offers Shoulder Solutions Too
Shoulder pain is a common problem that can result from everyday activities or from an accident, such as a past car crash. Pain and problems with range of motion can have a significant impact on your ability to perform tasks at work, engage in sports, or do your daily gym routine. At True Potential Chiropractic in Beaverton, OR, we offer help for common shoulder pain problems.
Shoulder Pain Symptoms
The symptoms of a shoulder problem can vary widely. Pain may be a dull ache or a sharp twinge. There may be swelling of the shoulder joint or spasms in the muscles. Pain may be intermittent or chronic. You may experience impaired range of motion or weakness in the shoulder and arm. Discomfort may occur only with movement or when resting. The discomfort can affect your ability to do normal tasks to a minor extent or affect your mobility significantly. These symptoms provide clues to the source of the problem that can help your chiropractor determine the best type of care for your needs.
Causes of Shoulder Pain
The shoulder is a complex combination of bones, ligaments and tendons that can be easily damaged by overuse or accident. Tendonitis, dislocation, torn cartilage, frozen shoulder, nerve impingement, and rotator cuff injuries are common problems that can cause pain and impairment of normal range of motion. In addition, osteoarthritis and rheumatic disorders can also affect shoulder function. Individuals often sustain injuries to the shoulder from auto accidents, sports activities, and work tasks.
Chiropractic Techniques for Shoulder Pain Treatment
Manual adjustment helps to re-align the shoulder joint and the spine, allowing the shoulder to function more smoothly. Corrective exercise can be an important technique to strengthen the muscles of the shoulder and arm, improving range of motion and flexibility. Massage therapy facilitates healing, stimulating circulation in the shoulder structures and improving mobility. Your Chiropractic Physician in Beaverton can also offer lifestyle advice to help prevent further injury and nutritional support to improve healing.
