Chiropractor for Shoulder Pain

Ask any athlete, doctor or gym instructor and they’ll tell you that the shoulder is a part of the body that can be highly susceptible to injury if not looked after carefully. Anyone who starts a weights program at the gym may find shoulder exercises one of the hardest to initially perform, because they can fatigue so easily. Tendonitis of the shoulder can also occur when the tendons in the shoulder’s rotator cuff become inflamed. Fortunately, shoulder pain can be treated with chiropractic. If you need a chiropractor for a shoulder injury or chronic shoulder pain, make an appointment with Back Space Chiropractic in Carlingford today.

Why is the Shoulder So Prone to Injury?

The shoulder is a highly mobile and therefore unstable ball and socket joint (with a relatively shallow socket) that’s prone to injury if it’s not used in the way our bodies have intended it to be used. It might be an unsafe action that places stress on the shoulder either at work or at the gym, such as lifting something heavy from the top of a shelf or an incorrect technique with a shoulder press machine, or it could be a sporting mishap.

Regardless of the cause, an experienced and skilled chiropractor for shoulder pain can help alleviate the discomfort that comes from injury through the use of non-invasive chiropractic adjustment. This treatment can help in numerous ways, including a decrease in inflammation, enhanced range of motion and improved strength.

Shoulder Treatment

Researchers have discovered that managing your shoulder injury with physical therapy is usually successful. Normally, you have two options: non-operative or a surgical approach. Your condition will dictate which option is best for you at this time. Non-operative care is also referred to as conservative rehabilitation.

If shoulder surgery is required, then your sports chiropractor may undertake:

  • pre-operative rehabilitation - to either try a non-operative treatment approach or to condition and prepare your body for a surgical procedure.

  • post-operative rehabilitation - to regain your range of movement, strength, speed and function both to normal.

Back Space Sports Chiropractors have a special interest and an excellent working relationship with Brisbane's leading shoulder surgeons to provide you with both conservative and operative rehabilitation options to ensure that you will attain the best outcome for your shoulder injury.
