How Our Chiropractors can Help Alleviate/Treat Shoulder Pain
- Chiropractic Adjustments - Chiropractic adjustments can decrease pain and discomfort in the shoulder joint. They can also help to decrease inflammation and restore normal range of motion. Chiropractic adjustments help to improve flexibility increasing muscle tone and muscle strength.
- Acupuncture - We also employ the use of acupuncture along with chiropractic care to help treat shoulder pain and refer our patients for acupuncture treatment as appropriate. Acupuncture has been shown to reduce pain and swelling and is an accepted and useful adjunct to chiropractic care in treating shoulder pain.
- Cold Laser Treatment - Cold Laser treatments which are also known as low-level laser treatments (LLLT) help to heal injuries, decrease inflammation and regenerate healthy tissue in the shoulder joint. We utilize both Class 3 Cold Laser Therapy for superficial treatment and Class 4 Cold laser treatment for deeper treatments.
- Exercises to Increase Strength and Range of Motion - We will also suggest appropriate strength and range of motion exercises for shoulder conditions as appropriate.
