Shoulder Injury Treatment
Atlanta Shoulder Injury Chiropractors
If your shoulder hurts, feels stiff, weak, or you’re worried it could slip out of place, it’s time to call AICA’s Atlanta shoulder Chiropractors to give yourself the injury treatment that will stop the pain and improve your quality of life.
Chiropractic Treatment for Shoulder Injuries
Shoulders are complicated.
We rely on them for nearly everything we do, and this year about 2.5 percent of Americans will ask a doctor about shoulder pain or injury, which amounts to 7.5 million people.
Among these, the rotator cuff is the most common shoulder injury.
We don’t usually think how much we use our shoulders until we hurt them. If you’ve been in an accident and injured your shoulder, we can help you scale the cliff of recovery. Our experienced orthopedic Chiropractors specialize in repairing shoulder damage, relieving pain and returning you to the activities you love.
Shoulder Treatments for Children
Kids and teenagers get tendonitis, which is the inflammation of the shoulder tendons, and labral tears, which can often be treated by strengthening the shoulder muscles.
Sometimes through sports or an accident, kids may experience partial or full dislocations, which require treatment for complete recovery.
Tears are the least common problem, and even when they happen rarely need surgery.
Atlanta Chiropractic Care for Rotator Cuff Injuries
People who play sports, climb or place strain on their shoulders may join the millions who injure their rotator cuffs. It’s made of four muscles that run from the front and back of your shoulder and connect to the ball joint, allowing it to move properly.
Tears in the rotator cuff muscles can be caused by traumatic accidents or consistent use either by playing sports, manual work, or simply aging.
Chiropractic Treatment for Aging Shoulders
Among seniors, arthritic shoulder joints are a common problem, because they have lost cartilage, may have old rotator cuff injuries or have inflamed surrounding tissues that can trigger bursitis.
The most common rotator cuff injury isn’t a tear, but tendinosis, which is the weakening of tendons over time.
How Long Does It Take For a Shoulder to Heal?
We know that you’d like to resume your regular schedule, activities and be pain-free as soon as possible. Sometimes, your body disagrees. Shoulder injuries usually involve the tendons, which are among the most stubborn parts to heal. It takes time, and sometimes months, for a muscle to regain its strength and allow you the mobility you’d prefer.
If you’d like to get back to your old self or increase the level of your health and quality of life, the important move is to start treatment immediately. That’s because the faster you take control and begin treatment, the sooner you will heal.
It’s a mistake to think your injury will heal on its own. The longer you wait then you’re adding pain, increased injury and the possibility of a chronic condition.
If you’ve been released from the Emergency Room with a shoulder injury, or with a referral in hand to an Orthopedic Surgeon, give AICA a call now.
We Have A Custom Treatment Plan For You
If an injury happened to you on the field, in the mountains, on the job or just over time, our Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon is happy to meet you and give you the best treatment options for your injury.
The most important factor to finding the right treatment plan is to get the right diagnosis. At AICA you can get an X-ray to find bone abnormalities and dislocations and also an MRI to explore the cause of any soft-tissue pain in your shoulder joint. After a full complete screening, AICA’s orthopedic doctors can provide complete physiotherapy or more intensive measures to help you get back your regular routine.
AICA Atlanta Can Provide Transporation
Don’t sit alone and in pain. For patients who can’t drive a car because of a hurt shoulder, we’ll give you a ride to your nearest AICA location. Now there’s no reason to withhold the help you deserve.
Why Insurance Almost Doesn’t Matter
We accept all major insurance. And if you’ve been the victim of an accident, chances are your medical expenses will be covered by the at-fault party.
Maybe your shoulder was hurt during a collision or sustained damage on the playing field. If so, common injuries include fractured bones and damaged ligaments that surround and move your shoulder. If you have pain from repetitive motions at work, or even on the tennis court, you may also need an orthopedic doctor to retain your full range of movement.
Whether you’ve braved a car accident, suffered from a slip and fall, endured a sports injury or carry a shoulder condition in need of therapy – call AICA Atlanta for all your orthopedic care.
