Are you Experiencing Shoulder Pain in Austin, TX?
Shoulder pain doesn’t sound so bad, until you experience it and realize how often you use your shoulders on a daily basis. The shoulders play a huge role in movements for pulling, pushing, rotating, and extending. The shoulders are integral to moving your arms to the side, above your head, behind you, and in front of you. What’s unique about the shoulders is the wide range of motion that it offers, which is why when you experience shoulder pain the limited range of motion can be stifling and frustrating to deal with. The rotator cuff in the shoulder is comprised of various muscles around the shoulder area that give it the flexibility and stability it requires for daily movement. However, sometimes the rotator cuff and the shoulder joint can be damaged and require therapy in order to prevent further damage and to stop the pain.
Causes of Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain can be caused by a variety of issues, including pain related to the muscles in the shoulders themselves, a ligament or tendon tear, inflammation in the shoulder muscles, tendonitis, or even the joint itself. The important part to keep in mind is that the shoulder is integral in the stable and healthy movement of your arms, and keeping it pain free and from getting worse is always better addressed earlier than later.
Chiropractic Care for Shoulder Pain
Dr. Colm has worked with patients experiencing shoulder pain of all kinds. Shoulder pain requires a comprehensive view of the body, including the spinal alignment to make sure the overall body is not compromised in structure and has proper nerve flow. Spinal subluxations and imbalances can cause referred pain, as well as secondary conditions due to a “domino” effect of the body compensating for the original imbalance. Oftentimes, Dr. Colm will find a patient who’s shoulder on 1 side is worse than the other and he will try to address the root cause for the imbalance in the patient’s structure.
