The shoulder joint is one of the most complex joints of the human body. The shoulder depends on multiple systems of ligaments, muscles and tendons. These systems work together to stabilize the shoulder and provide functional movement along with allowing other supporting joints to do the same.
When trauma is present to the shoulder joint; it’s imperative to not overlook soft tissue or bone damage. This can be assessed through diagnostic imaging which we perform on site. When shoulder instability is present, it can present with; lack of movement, pain that travels and/or restricted use of the shoulder and arm complex.
Some of the shoulder conditions we treat as a clinical team include the following:
It’s important to establish a whole health concept when it comes to treatment of the shoulder joint complex. This simply means targeting any inflammatory components through natural anti-inflammatory therapeutics, soft tissue mobilization, Chiropractic manipulation of the joint, acupuncture, massage therapy, cold laser therapy, therapeutic ultrasound, electrical neuromuscular stimulation and functional rehabilitation of the joint. An evidence based approach takes into consideration relief of pain, correction of movement/ mechanics and maintaining what you’ve corrected to get yourself to pre-injury status.
Chiropractic care involves several different elements, and the treatment you receive will depend on the extent and cause of your discomfort. It may involve a combination of spinal realignment using manual manipulation or instrument assisted chiropractic adjustments, digital imaging such as an x-ray or MRI, functional rehabilitation, cervical traction, acupuncture, cupping or massage therapy. Your Physician is also trained and experienced in giving advice regarding lifestyle changes that you may wish to participate in to alleviate your condition further or prevent additional episodes from occurring. This can include guidance on nutrition, exercise and recommendations for sleeping positions and relieving stress.
