Possible Injuries

When it comes to your shoulder, there are only a finite amount of options that can be causing pain. It could be a result of a nerve issue such as brachial plexopathy, or some sort ligament damage like your rotator cuff. These can occur in injury or accident, and some people have the misfortune of being born with an injury to the shoulders. There are also multiples muscles that go into the shoulder and its uses. That means injuries like a strain or tear in the muscle can be possible, as well as damages to the bones. Fractures and other bone damage such as osteoarthritis can incur lots of shoulder pain. If you are feeling shoulder pain, you should talk to your doctor. As you can see, it can be a result of many different things so you’ll have to explain the experience descriptively. The chiropractor is here to help find a diagnosis and treat your injury right away. This is hopefully without any invasive surgery or extensive medications that only mask the issue rather than treat the problem directly.

Surgery If Needed

In the event that the injury is more severe, surgery could be a possible option. There are many operations that could occur to deal with the shoulder. Often times they are successful and take care of the problem. A chiropractor will work to keep your arm in the best condition to avoid surgery, but if it is necessary, then the proper steps will be made. Otherwise, the best route to take will be physical therapy. This should occur whether or not surgery is needed, but if the surgery does occur, it will work even better. If an extensive injury occurs that requires a high degree of medical attention, then the shoulder could suffer from not being used and pain or fear of pain could limit mobility and strength. It’s not healthy to regrow an injured shoulder with poor form or lack of flexibility, you can suffer further on down the road. Lack of coordination leads to overcompensation and eventually, another injury if you’re not careful. Hopefully, physical therapy after surgery will help protect from issues such as this.
