Shoulder Pain

For many people suffering from both acute and chronic injuries, shoulder pain is a serious deterrent to living a happy and full life. If you have considered getting help after a personal injury or another source of chronic pain, you may find that chiropractic treatment is a great help.


Multicare Health Clinic offers treatment for different types of pain, including personal injury pain. If you are thinking about visiting our Sioux City, IA, location, here's what you need to know before you see a chiropractor.

Causes of Shoulder Pain

A variety of issues contribute to shoulder pain. Some cause temporary pain, while others may be permanent injuries that require long-term care. If you were injured in the past, you might have scar tissue in your shoulder joint. This tissue can grow thicker, limiting your range of motion.

Other injuries are more acute. Dislocations, often caused by auto accidents and other personal injuries, can cause pain even after they are reset. The ligaments and tendons may still need some recovery time. Rotator cuff injuries reduce range of motion as well. They also damage circulation, which may cause your injury to take longer to heal.

Finally, you may be suffering from a strain or a sprain. These types of injuries can lead to extreme discomfort and can prevent you from taking part in your favorite activities.

Treatment for Shoulder Pain

Spinal manipulation is one resource available to treat shoulder pain. When your back is in proper alignment, your shoulders may reap the benefits.

Stretching is also helpful. With safe and effective stretching techniques, you can improve your flexibility and your range of motion so you can avoid further injury and pain in the future.

Hot and cold therapy can ease much of the discomfort. Cold can help numb pain, and heat can help relieve pain and help your body move more fluidly to prevent injury.

Corrective exercises reduce shoulder pain as well. When you build strength in your muscles, you prevent weaker muscles from taking on the burden. A chiropractor will introduce you to a series of exercises you can perform safely.

Some physicians use ultrasound to treat injuries that cause shoulder pain. Ultrasound can target healing waves toward a specific injury site.
