As a chiropractor for over 35 years, i have helped many people with shoulder discomfort. It is a complex joint. There are many bone, bursas muscle and ligaments connected in the shoulder. Additionally, there is an elongated capsule of fibrous fluid, surrounding the joint. It is a joint that moves in every direction.
One of the most important characteristics for the shoulder the fact that it is connected to our neck, which is also known as the cervical spine. Nerves enter the openings between cervical spine’s bones and connect to muscles that help the joint to move freely and in a proper manner.
Treatment for shoulder problems with Chiropractic seeks to improve improper movement or misalignment in the cervical spinal, and therefore improve the function of the shoulder joint. Furthermore, treatment that targets injury to the shoulder joint must be addressed using chiropractic treatment.
I recall a patient named George who sought me out after having rotator cuff surgery. The surgery has improved the shoulder’s movement considerably, however, he experienced moderate discomfort in specific shoulder movements. As I examined George I noticed that there were some misalignments in the neck bones and some mild restrictions of movements of the bones that make up the socket of his shoulder. A chiropractic adjustment (sometimes called the chiropractic adjustment) assisted in realigning spinal vertebrae and restore motion that the shoulder joint enjoys. After the adjustment, George experienced complete shoulder pain relief as well as normal shoulder movement.
One of my patients, Tom, had surgery for a tear to the labral of the shoulder. His recovery was initially great, but then seemed to slow within a few months following the operation. He said his pain level had decreased about by 80% following the surgical procedure. However, he still felt some slight postoperative shoulder pain in both rest and activity. The examination of Tom identified spinal misalignments on his neck and upper back , as well as some restrictions in movement of the scapula bones, which is commonly known for being the shoulders blade. Through chiropractic adjustments, we restored the proper motion and alignment of these parts and Tom had full resolution of the shoulder pain he was experiencing.
A study published in 2018 found that post-surgical shoulder patients with persisting painwho received spinal manipulation , significantly improved shoulder movement and stability. Other studies have reported similar improvements in pain, motion and shoulder stability when chiropractic care was performed, following surgery for shoulder pain.
Patients who visit chiropractors report that getting a chiropractic adjustment is a relaxing, comfortable experience due to the fact that it helps to correct spinal misalignments and restricted movement of fixated extremity joints.
This is why a lot of patients seek the most natural, drug-free gentle chiropractic treatment for shoulder pain relief after surgery.
