Out of all the possible musculoskeletal problems the body can suffer from, shoulder pain is without a doubt one of the most commonly treated by chiropractors the world over. Whether this is down to our busy and stressful lives these days is debatable, but there is certainly an argument to say that carrying heavy bags, hours spent hunched over a computer, excessive time on hand-held gaming devices, and poor sleeping position and posture, all have a major role to play in the development and prevalence of shoulder pain.
If you have suffered with shoulder pain in the past, or you are currently suffering with it now, you will understand how painful and distressing it can be. Almost like a toothache niggle, the pain is sometimes constant, sometimes flaring, and when it is at its worst, it can feel as though you simply can’t think of anything else, stopping you from doing even the most basic of tasks.
Thankfully there are solutions to most problems, and shoulder pain is one of those fixable things in life. Here at Spine Scan, we see and treat countless people all suffering from various causes of shoulder pain, using highly effective and natural chiropractic methods. Perth chiropractor, Dr Adam Rocchi, will first thoroughly evaluate the problem at hand, diagnosing the cause, before choosing the best treatment option for the individual concerned.
Much of the time, shoulder pain is actually referred pain from another part of the body, usually the upper back and neck, which is often caused by posture and poor sleeping position. Problems in this part of the body can also be due to repetitive, strenuous motion, such as lifting children, carrying heavy bags etc, but you could also suffer a shoulder injury from a sporting incident, or simply from a strain. Whatever the cause, chiropractic care helps to restore balance and harmony to the area, in the most natural of ways, without the need for powerful painkillers, which simply go on to mask the problem at hand.
Chiropractic is suitable for many shoulder pain problems, however if your problem is deemed unsuitable then your chiropractor will refer you onto a specialist in the area. If you are suitable for chiropractic treatment however, this will take the form of gentle adjustments to the spine and shoulders, to make sure the nerves aren’t trapped or compressed, mobilisation of the muscles, as well as strengthening and stretching exercises to be continued at home. Chiropractic is a totally natural and holistic answer to a shoulder pain problem.
