Don't Ignore Your Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain, neck problems and upper cervical chiropractic

If you suffer from shoulder pain, which accounts for 16% of all musculoskeletal complaints, the good news is you are part of the general population. The bad news is being this part of the general population is not a good thing. There are various conditions that could cause your shoulder pain, and they are all conditions you do not want to ignore. Below is a list of those conditions, along with their definitions.

Shoulder Pain Conditions

  • Torn Rotator Cuff – Your Rotator Cuff is a group of muscles and tendons in your shoulder that when damaged causes a dull ache.
  • Bursitis – This is a condition that occurs when the Bursae (sacs of fluid that cushion bones, tendons, and muscles near your joints) becomes inflamed.
  • Adhesive Capsulitis – Also known as Frozen Shoulder, this is stiffness or pain in the shoulder joint that is more like to occur in people recovering from medical conditions or surgeries effecting the arm's mobility.
  • Tendonitis – This occurs when becomes inflamed or irritated. This can either be caused by repetitive, minor impact to the effected area or a more serious injury.
  • Impingement Syndrome – This is the result of strain or pressure upon tendons caused by shoulder bones that leads to inflammation of tendons in the Rotator Cuff.
  • Avascular Necrosis (Osteonecrosis) – This is the result of loss of blood to the bone that causes the bone, which is living tissue and requires blood, to die. It commonly effects the upper legs, upper arms, knees, shoulders, and ankles
  • Osteoarthritis – This is the most common form of arthritis and is the result of aging joint, injury, and obesity.


Upper Cervical Chiropractic and Your Shoulder Pain

If you are part of the 16% of people in the U.S. who suffers from shoulder pain, you do not have to be part of the percentage that does nothing about their pain and continues to suffer from it. You also don't have to be part of that group of people who thinks the solution to their ailment is to ingest medication that will only cover the pain and not deal with the cause of the pain.

When you seek the care of an upper cervical chiropractor, you are taking the right step forward to healing. Shoulder injuries frequently have to do with posture. The position of your head, neck and shoulder girdle can lead to a variety of different shoulder problems. An upper cervical chiropractor can evaluate your head, neck and spinal alignment to determine if the underlying cause may originate there.
