Shoulder and Arm Pain
You might have a tooth ache, nagging or intense pain in your shoulder or along the length of your arm, or a sharp pinch or stabbing as you move. There are a number of conditions that can cause shoulder or arm pain. It may even be linked to a problem in your spine or your shoulder joint.
The problem can be made worse for people whose job involves poor posture at a desk, heavy or repetitive use of the shoulder joint – from builders, desk workers, through to professional tennis players. What is common to all cases is that it can be very painful and disruptive.
Alternatively, the problem might be a direct result of some kind of trauma – a sprain or dislocation following a fall or sports injury , for example.
Of course, there are other conditions that can lead to discomfort in the shoulder and arm – such as frozen shoulder or a trapped nerve, which leaves the sufferer with very limited motion in their shoulder joint.
No matter the cause of your shoulder or arm pain, the impact it has on your everyday life are the same: pain whenever the arm moves, a struggle to complete simple tasks such as putting on clothing and sometimes difficulty facing the day with any kind of enthusiasm, to name but a few.
Luckily, your problem can go away.
When you come to our clinic, we take a holistic, drug-free approach to your body to determine what could be causing your pain, whether it’s the joint, soft tissues or nerve. We’ll listen to you and assess all parts of your lifestyle in order to arrive at the correct diagnosis.
From there, we’ll use Chiropractic care to gently adjust and stimulate the shoulder joint and structure to help it heal and to normalise function.
You’ll also get the benefits of individualised exercises as advised by your Chiropractor, to help prevent shoulder or arm pain returning.
