Conditions We Treat
Painful shoulder conditions that limit movement are very common, and are caused by injuries affecting the shoulder joint, muscles, tendons, ligaments and cartilage.
Shoulder Pain Treatment Noble Park
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.
In some instances, shoulder pain can be referred from a problem with the neck or upper back.
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
Diagnosis of Shoulder Pain
In order to determine the cause of your shoulder pain, your chiropractor will conduct a full physical, orthopaedic, and neurological examination of the shoulder, cervical, and thoracic spine.
You will be asked to perform shoulder range of motion and muscle strength tests. Where the pain is felt, both at rest and during movement of the shoulder, provides important clues as to the cause of the shoulder pain.
The initial objective of all shoulder injuries is to relieve pain and inflammation. Whilst many doctors will recommend non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to relieve pain and swelling, the benefit obtained by applying ice-packs can be equally, if not more beneficial.
As your shoulder begins to heal, it is vitally important to restore range of movement, and later to improve muscle strength so as to stabilise the shoulder and help prevent further injury and aggravation.
Your chiropractor will be able to assist you with suitable shoulder range of motion exercises, and shoulder strengthening and rehabilitation exercises during your recovery.
