We begin with a thorough examination, as well as an examination of your neck and midback, which often are the source of shoulder pain.
An orthopedic and neurological exam will involve your motor reflexes, muscle strength, nerve distortion and the scope of the pain. Other tests, such as X-rays or MRI, may be ordered to determine if an injury has occurred or whether there is a disk problem. These can show whether there’s disc problems, bone spurs or soft tissue problem. Physical conditioning also is effective to minimize pain recurrence.
The treatment for many shoulder ailments is similar because muscle imbalances respond so well to chiropractic manipulation. We will work to restore proper mobility and correct any misalignment. Exercise, physical conditioning and clinical massage will speed your recovery (which we also offer).
