It is important to find natural ways to deal with shoulder pain to stay active and healthy. The shoulder is one of the largest joints in the body and is used in most of our everyday activities. At Brown Chiropractic Clinic, serving Cedar Rapids, IA, we can help you with shoulder pain issues to keep you moving and active.
Understanding Shoulder Pain
The shoulder is a joint, but this important part of the body is also much more than that. The joint of the shoulder is surrounded by some of the largest muscles of the body and a complex system of ligaments. These parts work together so the shoulder can perform everyday tasks that you depend on for your productivity and quality of life.
If any single part of this system is damaged or inflamed, it can cause pain. The pain can lead to a decrease in your mobility productivity. Most shoulder pain is due to an injury or overuse of the shoulder. In some cases, shoulder pain can result from ongoing conditions such as arthritis or other inflammatory issues.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help
Many people visit a traditional doctor whenever they feel pain. The problem with this approach is that traditional doctors will often default to simply prescribing medication to mask the symptoms you are experiencing. Your pain symptoms are signals of what is actually wrong. The pain will not truly be gone until you address the real issue causing the pain. If you mask the symptoms with pain medication, the actual condition could worsen as it is left untreated.
A chiropractor will not only address your pain symptoms. They will attempt to get to the root of what is causing the pain. Treatments administered can help heal the injury or the inflammation. When the injury or the inflammation is healed, you will start to experience pain relief. This is how a chiropractor can help you with natural long-term pain relief.
Shoulder pain treatment can include shoulder adjustments, hot/cold therapy, massage therapy, and more.
