Chiropractic: Symptoms & Conditions

Chiropractor for Shoulder – Reduce your Shoulder Pain

One of the complaints we hear most often from our patients is related to shoulder pain.  This type of pain can be caused by many conditions.  For treatment to be effective, it must be directed at the specific cause of the problem.

Here is a list of some of the most common conditions which can cause shoulder pain and what chiropractic treatment can do to help reduce that pain.

  • Referred pain from the neck
  • Shoulder bursitis
  • Rotator cuff tendonitis
  • Rotator cuff tear
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Shoulder instability/dislocation
  • Ligament Injury/Tear
  • Arthritis
  • Referred Pain from internal organs

Because the treatment of shoulder pain depends entirely on the cause of the problem, we will diagnose the problem before we begin any treatment.

Chiropractic shoulder treatment could include one or more of the following:

  • Rest for the joint
  • Ice and heat applications
  • Stretching the muscle and tendons around the joint
  • Anti-inflammatory medications (Non-steroidal, or natural alternatives)
  • Cortisone injections (to be used with caution)

If you are unsure of the cause of your shoulder pain, or if you’re not sure what to do for your shoulder pain, call today to talk to our shoulder chiropractor in Caldwell, ID for more information.  In addition to serving Caldwell, ID - our Chiropractic for Shoulder service is available for patients from Notus, ID too!

Chiropractic for Neck – Don’t Settle for Neck Pain!

Today’s modern living often entails hours of driving or hunching over workstations, which plays havoc with our necks. It is not surprising that neck pain is the second most common condition that chiropractors treat.

Typical symptoms of neck problems are caused by misalignments of the spinal segments in the upper back and neck. The neck, or cervical spine, is comprised of seven vertebrae surrounded by muscles, tendons, and ligaments. If the vertebrae are pushed out of place by poor posture, accidents, falls, or overuse, the muscles and tendons will be forced to stretch too far, causing pain and discomfort. The pain usually does not go away until the spine and connective tissues are helped back into their normal positions through chiropractic neck care.

Chiropractor for Back - Get Rid of Back Pain!

As you go through life, a slight loss of proper movement of the bones/joints can interfere with the healthy working of your spine and the nerves that pass through it. This can lead to pain! Almost everyone gets back pain at some time, but staying active, with the help of chiropractic treatment, may well be the best solution.

Common Causes Requiring a Back Chiropractor Include:

  • Poor posture may lead to back pain, particularly if you:
    • Spend hours a day sitting at a desk or a computer
    • Slouch in front of the TV
    • Sleep in a bed that is too hard or too soft
    • Find yourself hunching your back or shoulders in stressful situations
