Common Questions About Shoulder Pain Relief Answered by our Queens, NY Chiropractor
Chiropractors not only treat the spine, they can treat any joint with a range-of-motion injury. At Dr. Lee's Spine Center, we treat many shoulder injuries caused by rotator cuff injuries or arthritis by using spinal manipulation and other treatments to relieve shoulder pain. Our Queens chiropractor provides the answers to frequently asked questions about shoulder pain and chiropractic treatment.
What Makes the Shoulder Prone to Injury?
Rotator cuff muscles originate near the shoulder blade to wrap over the shoulder joint, making the shoulder the body’s most mobile joint. The anatomy of this joint is very complex because the joint is surrounded by nerves and four tendons that form the rotator cuff to attach the muscles to the bones. Cartilage tissue and ligaments provide further support. The shoulder's complex anatomy means that any one of these tissues can stretch or tear.
What are Common Causes of Shoulder Pain?
Shoulder pain is often caused by sports injuries, personal injuries, auto injuries or other trauma. Shoulder pain can even result from poor posture! Let's say you tend to hunch forward over your keyboard. Shoulders hunch forward and muscles weaken, and neck injuries can occur and radiate pain into the shoulder area.
What are Common Shoulder Injuries?
Our Queens chiropractor often treats shoulder pain for injuries such as:
- Dislocated shoulder
- Shoulder Bursae
- Frozen Shoulder
- Rotator Cuff Injury
- Strains & Sprains
What Does Chiropractic Treatment for Shoulder Pain Involve?
We will do a range of motion tests to determine the type and extent of your shoulder or neck injury, then our chiropractor can use gentle shoulder adjustments to shift the joint backward and forward to fix the issue. We also will perform chiropractic adjustment on your neck and upper back to alleviate pressure on the shoulder, and we will teach you postural exercises to strengthen the rotator cuff.
