get shoulder pain relief at our chiropractic office

We don't think much about our shoulders until they start to give us pain. Most people immediately start looking for the best chiropractic care in Belvidere because they are always using their shoulders to lift and extend their arms, to carry, wave and perform numerous other motions and tasks. The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body and as a result it is subject to a wide range of injuries and conditions.

Shoulder problems that go unchecked can lead to lifelong, debilitating issues. In order to properly treat the shoulder joint and achieve long-term relief it is important to identify the cause of shoulder pain. This article explains some of the common causes of shoulder pain and how chiropractic care can return the shoulder to functional health.


Shoulder Pain Treatment in Belvidere

The causes of shoulder pain are seemingly endless, but let's go over some of the more common causes for pain in the shoulder. Shoulder pain may be the result of conditions, such as:

  • Neck and upper back tightness
  • Spinal misalignment
  • Arthritis
  • Abnormal patterns of movement
  • Athletic injuries and automobile accidents

While a few of the items on this list may indicate localized swelling in the shoulder joint, more of them point to the spine as the probable source of pain. The nerves that control the shoulder originate in the spine. If the vertebrae around the neck and upper back are compressed or injured, the nerves that go to the shoulder will be irritated and cause pain. Even a minor spinal misalignment can interrupt communication between the nerves and the shoulder and a cascade of problems can begin. So, what appears as shoulder pain may actually be referred pain from the spinal column.


Many Causes: Overuse, Injury, or Accident

Whatever the cause of your shoulder disability, it is due to damage done to the structure of the joint itself, the tendons, ligaments or the surrounding muscle and nerve groups.
