Shoulder pain can be sourced from a number of problems including work/auto or sports injuries, rotator cuff syndrome, bursitis, tendonitis and frozen shoulder. When you're in pain, even the slightest motion can be excruciating and impede your daily activities. Here at the Spinal Rehab Clinic in Sauk Rapids, our goal is to do more than help you get shoulder pain relief. Our chiropractic care is designed to discover the source of your condition, so you can enjoy long-term relief. We'll go the extra mile to teach you methods to strengthen your muscles in effort to prevent future shoulder injuries.
While acute conditions due to tendonitis and mild injuries will heal in time, they'll heal much quicker with chiropractic care versus pain medication and traditional medicine. However, left untreated or if your shoulder pain becomes chronic, more serious complications can arise if left untreated. Repetitious movements of the arm-especially when weight is involved-can cause inflammation and small tears in muscles or tendons in the rotator cuff. We see many patients who enjoy sports such as weight lifting, tennis, baseball, golf, swimming and other hobbies that rely on shoulder strength suffering from rotator cuff pain.
If you avoid getting rotator cuff injury treatment, it can lead to an even more severe condition known as frozen shoulder. Frozen shoulder occurs when the pain is so tremendous in the rotator cuff, that you avoid using the shoulder altogether which allows the adhesions to form between the ligaments and tendons. Left untreated rotator cuff injuries that lead to periodic frozen shoulder can cause the development of osteoarthritis as calcium deposits continue to build up in the tendons.
