Common Shoulder Conditions We Treat

Shoulder Pain

General shoulder pain can arise from various causes, including muscle strain, tendonitis, and arthritis. Our approach to shoulder pain involves identifying the underlying cause and providing targeted treatments to relieve pain and improve shoulder function.

Signs and Symptoms

  • Persistent Ache or Sharp Pain: Constant or intermittent pain in the shoulder
  • Tenderness: Sensitivity to touch or pressure on the shoulder
  • Swelling: Inflammation or swelling around the shoulder joint

Rotator Cuff Injuries

Rotator cuff injuries involve damage to the muscles and tendons that stabilize the shoulder joint. These injuries can result from acute trauma or chronic overuse. Our treatments focus on reducing pain, improving shoulder function, and strengthening the rotator cuff through chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue work, and rehabilitative exercises.
