Suffering with Shoulder Pain?

If you're experiencing pain during exercise, it's time to consider the root cause. 

The shoulder is one of the most vulnerable joints in the human body. There is so much range of movement that it is surprising more shoulder injuries do not occur. If you're experiencing shoulder pain during your training or even daily-use regimen, it's time to consider the root cause.

Anatomy of the Shoulder

Your shoulder is made up of three bones: your upper bone (humerus), your shoulder blade (scapula), and your collarbone (clavicle). The head of your upper are bone fits into a rounded socket in your shoulder blade, This socket is called the glenoid. A combination of muscles and tendons keeps your arm bone centered in your shoulder socket. These tissues are called the rotator cuff. They cover the head of your upper arm bone and attach it to your shoulder blade.

The shoulder is a ball and socket joint with a large range of movement. Due to the large range of movement, these types of joints are potentially more prone to injury. Swimmers for example, are most susceptible to receptive shoulder injury. 

The most common causes of shoulder pain include overexertion, tendonitis from overuse, pinched nerves, shoulder joint instability, and the more apparent dislocations and fractures.

Chiropractic care is a safe, effective, noninvasive form of care that can be beneficial for some patients who experience shoulder pain. 

If you or someone you know is suffering from chronic shoulder pain, you may want to consider chiropractic care. You have nothing to lose but your pain!

Your health affects everything you do and everyone you know.
