Recovering From Shoulder pain

The ultimate goal of chiropractic care for shoulder pain is to bring the patient’s shoulder back to full function while reducing and eliminating the pain caused by the injury.

Chiropractic care can be an extremely effective treatment for shoulder pain regardless of its cause. A chiropractor will often begin with an examination of the patient’s neck area, due to the cohesive nature of these areas. Whether the shoulder pain is connected to the neck or is limited to the lower part of the shoulder, it can generally be treated with non-invasive methods of natural healing such as chiropractic care.
