Contact sports like football also cause shoulder injuries. Chiropractic care can treat several types of conditions related to the shoulder.
How Can Our Chiropractor Help with Shoulder Pain?
As the first step to your shoulder pain treatment, we will perform a physical exam, which is vital to proper treatment of your shoulder. The will include a physical examination that checks your posture, reflexes, range of motion, and other muscle and joint-related tests. In some cases, our chiropractor might recommend imaging tests, such as X-rays. After a diagnosis, our chiropractor will create a personalized treatment plan for you and your condition.
One of the core chiropractic methods used for shoulder pain treatment is manual adjustments. In this treatment, our chiropractor will manually manipulate the shoulder to restore proper alignment of the joint. This method is known to be highly effective in treating shoulder pain, reducing shoulder stiffness and inflammation, and improving range of motion.
Our chiropractor may also use massage therapy to reduce inflammation around the joint and improve blood flow, which helps with healing. We also provide regenerative medicine, which promotes natural healing in the body. If your shoulder is swollen or inflamed, our chiropractor may recommend hot or cold therapy to aid in the recovery process.
Our chiropractor at Nordquist Family Chiropractic can also guide you on proper posture, sleeping habits, and other lifestyle changes to help speed up your shoulder pain recovery.
