What Causes Shoulder Pain?

Whether you are suffering from mild or severe shoulder pain, it is crucial to seek treatment as soon as possible. This prevents symptoms and conditions from worsening. Some common injuries and causes of shoulder pain include the following.

Fractures

One of the reasons people suffer from shoulder pain is fractures. With a fractured clavicle or humerus, it becomes impossible to move the shoulders. This also leads to pain and swelling around the fractured area.

Whiplash

If are in a rear-end auto accident, it is likely that you developed whiplash. The impact from the rear-end accident pushes your head to the front then slams it back, which leads to sore or tight muscles around the neck. This pain can also spread to the shoulders. 

Dislocation

Shoulder joint dislocation is another reason for pain. This often occurs in auto accidents. A shoulder dislocation needs immediate medical attention to prevent further muscle damage and chronic conditions.

Torn Rotator Cuff

A torn rotator cuff can be caused by a high-impact auto accident. The rotator cuff helps to lift and rotate the arm. It’s comprised of four muscles that connect the humerus to the shoulder blade. If you suspect that your rotator cuff is torn, watch out for signs such as pain when you move the shoulder in a certain direction, a cracking sensation if you move the arm, and feeling weak when lifting or rotating the arm.

Chiropractic Care for Shoulder Pain

When you visit our facility, our chiropractor will do a physical exam to determine the cause of your pain. Depending on you condition, we may use one or more of the following methods to alleviate your shoulder pain.

  • Massage therapy: Through massage therapy, the blood flow to your shoulder will improve and promote healing.
  • Spinal adjustments: Spinal adjustments mean realigning the vertebrae of the spine. This improves the shoulder’s range of motion and decreases pressure on the joints.
  • Corrective exercises: With stretching and strengthening exercises, you can improve your shoulder’s range of motion and alleviate pain. These exercises can also help you avoid future injuries.
