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.
