Chiropractic care is mostly known for its care and treatment for neck and back pain. The chiropractors here at SF Custom Chiropractic are also specialized in treating smaller joints and other areas of the body like knees, feet, elbows, and shoulders. When your shoulder is impaired, you’re likely to experience pain, discomfort and a decrease in range of motion. We rely on our shoulders every day so let’s give them the attention and care they deserve.
What Causes Shoulder Pain? San Francisco Doctor Explains:
Shoulder pain can stem from a variety of causes including injuries to standard wear and tear. Your shoulder is made up of many tendons and smaller joints that allow it to be the most mobile joint in your body. Your shoulders move forward, backward, in a circular motion and away from the body. Think about your daily activities and how many of them involve the mobility of your shoulders. There is soft tissue that surrounds your shoulder tendons and joints. Like anything else in the body, it can be worn down over time as we age or can be damaged from a sports injury or hard impact. Here are some common shoulder pain causes that our chiropractors help treat.
- Torn Rotator cuff
- Rotator Cuff Tendonitis
- Frozen Shoulder: Adhesive Capsulitis
- Dislocated Shoulder
- Shoulder Impingement: Pinched Nerve
