If you’ve been suffering from ongoing Hilton Head Island shoulder pain, it may be time to see a chiropractor. At the Fraum Center for Restorative Health, shoulder pain is just one of the many symptoms we work to manage and treat in our office. We offer a variety of chiropractic techniques and services to help you lead a healthier life.
We focus on treating the cause of your pain, rather than masking your symptoms with prescription drugs and invasive treatments.
Common Causes of Shoulder Pain
There are many potential causes of your shoulder pain, so the first priority when you visit our office will be determine the cause so we can work to create the right customized plan for treatment.
One of the more common causes of shoulder pain are sports injuries, especially among athletes such as tennis players and golfers, who place a lot of strain on their shoulders while playing. However, shoulder pain can also be caused by everyday wear and tear, such as picking up a heavy object using the wrong technique or while at the gym.
Some of the most common shoulder injuries we see in our office include torn ligaments and muscle strains. Medical conditions such as arthritis can also lead to ongoing shoulder pain. The proper course of pain management and treatment will largely depend on the root cause of your symptoms.
Shoulder Pain Chiropractic Treatment
Our chiropractic treatment methods are not only natural and non-invasive, but they also do not involve the use of medications. As a result, you can enjoy the relief from shoulder pain you need without the risk of side effects and other complications.
One of the more useful chiropractic methods for treating shoulder pain, we have found, is spinal adjustment. This is an ideal treatment for instances where the shoulder has shifted out of alignment, resulting in uneven pulling of ligaments and muscles. Through the use of chiropractic adjustments, we can focus on restoring the proper alignment of the shoulder with the cervical spine, which can result in instant relief.
In addition to chiropractic adjustment, at-home corrective exercises can also be useful in the treatment of shoulder pain. These are often useful in conjunction with adjustment therapy to help restore your shoulder’s range of motion following an injury. We may also recommend a spinal and postural screening here in our office, as lifestyle changes may be needed to improve your posture and reduce your risk of future shoulder and spine injuries as well.
