What is shoulder pain?
Shoulder pain can arise as the result of numerous incidents; either from an injury such as a motor accident, or as the symptom of a chronic condition such as arthritis. Many of the clients which we treat at Ice Arena Chiropractic are often surprised by the intensity and duration of shoulder pain.
It is important to remember that your shoulders are essential parts of your body which are fundamental for performing the majority of daily activities. As such, any shoulder pain injuries should be seriously considered and immediately treated to prevent long term physiological conditions.
What are the symptoms of shoulder pain?
Some of the most common symptoms of shoulder pain include:
- weakened ability to hold objects,
- decreased functioning of your arms,
- shoulder pain which persists even whilst at rest,
- shoulder pain which persists more than a day or two,
- unusual twinges or aches around your shoulder area.
If you suffer from any of these conditions, it is crucial that you seek professional help. For instance, chiropractic care has been shown to be an extremely effective treatment for shoulder pain, irrespective of the initial cause.
How Ice Arena Chiropractic Clinic can help
Our team of experienced chiropractors will precisely examine your neck area since shoulder pain can frequently be the result of “referred” pain from the neck. Whether the shoulder pain is connected to the neck or is limited to the lower part of the shoulder, it can generally be treated with non-invasive methods of natural healing such as chiropractic care and massage therapy.
Care for an injured shoulder may include massage therapy, the application of heat or ice packs, gentle manipulation from the chiropractor to help the shoulder return to its original state of functionality, as well as gentle stretching and strengthening exercises that the patient can perform at home.
