If you are experiencing shoulder pain, you know how it can affect day to day activities. Even sleeping can become difficult when you are in pain constantly. If the shoulder is weak or numb, it could make normal activates, like eating, a chore.
What can cause pain in a person’s shoulder? While it may be something less serious, pain can mean a dislocation, separation, or a rotator cuff injury. It could also be a misalignment in the upper neck that is causing the shoulder discomfort. When the upper neck is misaligned, this can irritate shoulder nerves and affect the arm and hand as well.
Where can you look for natural relief of shoulder pain?
At Advanced Spinal Care, we use the NUCCA method of upper cervical chiropractic to focus on the upper neck. The top bones of the spine can easily become misaligned, and this can result in shoulder pain and other side effects. How does NUCCA work?
We start with x-rays that reveal the specific location and degree of a misalignment. Rather than twisting or popping the neck, as in general chiropractic, and upper cervical adjustment is very precise and gentle. That means the relief provided is long-lasting. Many begin to feel better almost immediately after an adjustment, though some may require more time to heal. The good news is that when the alignment holds, the body has more time to heal.
So if shoulder pain is being caused by an upper neck misalignment, symptoms should be reduced and eventually be completely resolved once the body has had a chance to heal. If you want an examination to see if this kind of misalignment is the source of your pain, come in for a consultation today, and learn what NUCCA can do for you.
