How AICA Atlanta’s Chiropractors Treat Chronic Shoulder Pain
Aug 3, 2017

Many people throughout the greater Atlanta community think that Chiropractic Treatment only focuses on conditions that affect the spine. Although our Atlanta Chiropractors do help hundreds of patients each year overcome musculoskeletal conditions, there is also a wide range of treatment solutions that focus on extremities like the shoulders.

Shoulder pain is common among people who participate in sports, are injured in a slip and fall accident, or are involved in a car crash. Some people also develop chronic shoulder pain as a result of stress and tension that gradually builds over time. If you experience chronic shoulder pain, contact AICA Atlanta to schedule a free consultation to learn more about your condition, as well as possible treatment options.

Causes of Shoulder Pain

You shoulders are the most mobile joints in your entire body. The rotator cuff is what most patients believe is the cause of their suffering, although shoulder conditions come from a variety of sources that range from your muscles to the ligaments that surround your upper body.

For people who actively participate in sports that require repetitive use of their shoulders like tennis, pain is caused by the strain that’s placed on their tendons over time. Others may be involved in an accident that causes blunt trauma to their shoulders, leading to sprains or fractures.

Trying to Ignore Shoulder Pain

Our Atlanta Chiropractors help many people who visit our clinic after attempting to ignore their pain for years. Chronic conditions take some time to heal and the longer someone goes without treatment, the more damage they are likely to sustain. Acute shoulder conditions can be addressed quickly, and an injured patient can return to their routine without maintaining uncomfortable or painful symptoms.

Atlanta Chiropractic Treatment For Shoulder Pain

To determine the most appropriate treatment plan for each patient, our Chiropractors will need to perform a complete examination to determine the source of the condition. Although each patient requires their personalized treatment plan, most cases of shoulder pain are supported with physical therapy, manual adjustments, postural adjustments, and myofascial release.

Before offering any kind of treatment plan to the patient, our chiropractor will perform a complete history and exam of the patient’s complaint. During this initial review, the Chiropractor can locate the source of the pain and the best possible treatment option available, whether it be in this chiropractic office or a referral to another specialist or surgeon.

If you suffer from chronic shoulder pain or recently injured your shoulder, contact AICA Atlanta to schedule a free consultation or an examination. We can help you recover from your pain and return to your favorite activities in no time. Call us today to schedule an appointment – (404) 889-8828.
