Painful shoulder conditions that limit movement are very common, and are caused by injuries affecting the shoulder joint, muscles, tendons, ligaments and cartilage. As the shoulder has a high degree of flexibility, it is therefore less stable and more prone to injuries than other joints of the body.
Since the nerves that supply the shoulder and arm originate from the neck and upper spine, conditions such as Vertebral Subluxations commonly contribute to pain in the shoulder.
Chiropractors can assist with the following shoulder conditions:
- Chronic Shoulder Pain and Stiffness
- Shoulder Muscle Spasm and Tension
- Rotator Cuff Disorders such as tears and strains
- Frozen Shoulder
- Arthritis of the Shoulder
