Anatomy of Shoulder Pain

The shoulder is the most flexible joint in the human body. It's difficult to realize how many daily activities involve your shoulder, until something goes wrong. In addition to being the most mobile joint, it is also one of the most complex.

The shoulder joint is composed of three bones, multiple tendons, ligaments, bursa, tissues, and nerves all working together keep your shoulder functioning properly. However, the complex anatomy of the shoulder also means there are many things that can go wrong with the joint. 

Treating Shoulder Pain

Chiropractic care is often known for being able to relieve back pain. However, chiropractors are trained to manipulate the body's joints and bring them back into alignment. This isn't limited to the spine. It applies to all the joints in the body. Chiropractic treatment for shoulder pain will depend on the underlying cause of the pain. However, adjustments, posture correction, and physical therapy are often used.

Shoulder Adjustments

If your shoulder is out of alignment, it can cause inflammation, stiffness, pain, and muscle spasms. In some cases, your neck or upper back may require adjustment as well. Shoulder adjustments may be done manually, with the help of a hammer tool, or a speeder board. Adjustments should be gentle, and you will likely feel better immediately after an adjustment. 

Posture

Improper posture is often associated with back pain. However, it can cause shoulder pain as well. An unhealthy posture can pull your shoulder out of alignment. Slumping forward, for example, can cause your shoulders to be too far forward, causing pain. The easiest way to maintain proper posture is to keep your ears, shoulders, and hips in line with each other.  

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy will likely involve exercises. Your doctor may introduce you to them and then allow you to do them at home while still monitoring your condition. Exercises may include stretches as well as strength building with elastic bands. You may be given exercises to improve your posture as well.  Physical therapy exercises may help relieve your shoulder pain and prevent further injury.
