The shoulder is the most movable joint in the body, it is also one of the most unstable and can cause significant shoulder pain. Frequent problems include sprains, strains, dislocations, tendonitis, bursitis, impingements, torn rotator cuffs, fractures and arthritis.
There are many different soft tissues in the shoulder including ligaments, tendons and muscles. Each of these has the ability to be compromised by improper motion or overuse. These soft tissues all work together to create the movement and strength required for proper function.
Chiropractic treatment of the shoulder can be extremely effective, but this relies upon a good diagnosis. At Lushington Chiropractic we spend the time getting a detailed history and thorough examination so we can get to the route of the problem, allowing the most appropriate treatment for you to be used.
Treatment for an injured shoulder may include gentle manipulation of the shoulder and surrounding areas, application of heat or ice and gentle stretching/ strengthening exercises that you can perform effectively at home.
