Shoulder complaints / pain
Shoulder pain can occur for many different reasons,
common ones include, minor sprains, strains or injuries.
Repetitive strain injuries are possible due to repeated
small everyday stresses, or from excessive or repetitive
movement during sport activities such as tennis or golf.
Shoulder pain symptoms vary widely depending on the cause and structures involved.
Your chiropractor will use orthopaedic, neurological and
muscular tests to establish the cause of your problem and
ensure that you are given the correct treatment.
The treatment of shoulder pain depends entirely in the cause of the problem. Your chiropractor is trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of shoulder problems and to recognise problems which may need a referral back to the GP or to another health care professional.
Chiropractic is widely recognised as a cost effective and
evidence based approach to shoulder pain. After a full
assessment during which your chiropractor will diagnose
the cause of your current symptoms, gentle adjustments
will be made to your body.
As part of your chiropractic treatment, your chiropractor
will discuss with you ways in which you can avoid future
problems with your shoulder. Recommendations may include
exercise and lifestyle advice.
