The shoulder is one of those incredibly versatile and hard-working joints that you don't normally pay much attention to -- until something goes wrong with it. Once you develop chronic pain or a disabling injury in one or both shoulders, however, you suddenly realize just how limited your quality of life has become. Even so, you may not get the relief you need from simple painkillers, while the prospect of shoulder surgery seems awfully extreme to you (and rightly so). If you'd rather pursue drug-free, non-invasive shoulder pain treatment in Imperial NE, Weiss Chiropractic PC can help you achieve that elusive relief and help you optimize your shoulder function.
The human shoulder joint features a ball-and-socket arrangement that allows you to raise, lower, and rotate your arm in a variety of directions. But there's more to this complex joint than the ways the arm bone, shoulder blade, and collarbone come together. Making your shoulder move requires a set of four muscles known as the rotator cuff. These muscles are attached to the shoulder bones by tendons, which are cushioned by anti-friction sacs called bursae. The bone ends are lined with cartilage to keep them from rubbing together. As you might suspect, these many parts offer many opportunities for damage or dysfunction to occur -- with shoulder pain as the result. Common causes include:
Chiropractic care makes a natural first line of treatment for shoulder pain. Our chiropractor can examine your shoulder via X-rays and other techniques to observe problems ranging from osteoarthritis or mild joint alignment errors to an acute dislocation. We can also check your neck to see whether you're actually experiencing referred cervical nerve pain. We can then provide safe, conservative shoulder pain treatment by making the necessary chiropractic adjustments to normalize joint position and relieve pinched nerve tissue.
Weiss Chiropractic PC is your choice for shoulder pain treatment if you want to feel better and/or heal faster without surgery or medication.
