Chiropractic clinics and the treatment of shoulder pain

Chiropractic clinics help in providing natural and non-surgical cure to shoulder pain. In the human body, the shoulder is the most mobile joint of all.  The shoulder consists of tendons, muscles and joints, it can therefore easily become unstable. The possibilities related to shoulder pain can therefore be very numerous. This is why it is important to consult your chiropractor to determine if your shoulder pain is caused by a musculoskeletal problem or by a more serious condition. Read on to learn how chiropractic clinics can help you if you have shoulder pain.

What is chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a complementary medicine recognized by the Ministry of Health and WHO. It aims to treat pains related to the spine and dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system (disorders of the muscular and skeletal system). It is mainly based on vertebral manipulations and mobilizations of the joints.

Reduce the risk of shoulder pain

To reduce the risk of shoulder pain, the shoulder muscles need to be strengthened. It is also useful to plan shoulder warm-up exercises before engaging in work that requires exerting a forward force with the arm raised.

If you have to lift objects on high shelves, for example, it is best to use a ladder. In this way, you will avoid stretching to take an object at arm’s length. The principle is simple, your hands should not be higher than your shoulders.

Similarly, when you are in the front seat of an automobile, avoid contorting yourself in order to get a bag, document or suitcase in the back seat. This way of lifting offsets the shoulder while increasing the risk of injury.
