A common complaint by many people is a pain in their shoulders that keep them from performing some of their daily tasks. The shoulder has the most complex joint in the human body. It makes it possible for you to move your arm 360 degrees, as well as hold those bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments so they work together. Because of all these different parts, it’s inevitable that at some point in time, most people will experience some pain or loss of mobility due to some form of injury.
Before this condition develops into a chronic problem, find a chiropractor for shoulder pain. The sooner you get the appropriate treatment, the quicker you will be able to return to your normal activities.
Don’t ignore these symptoms:
- Constant pain that lasts more than a few days
- Inability to use the arm
- Injury that causes deformity of the joint
- Shoulder pain while resting or sleeping
- Swelling or bruising around the joint
- Signs of an infection, fever, redness, warmth
if you experience shoulder pain that is not relieved by several days of rest, ice, massage, and elevation, your chiropractor for shoulder treatment may recommend several types of gentle exercise. Here are just a few exercises that your chiropractor can explain in more detail that may be beneficial for you:
- Arm-across-Chest Stretch
- Neck Release
- Chest Expansion
- Seated Twist
- The 90, 90 Shoulder Stretch
Remember: Any of the above exercises should be used in conjunction with chiropractic treatment so that any adverse side effects or further injury can be prevented!
