If you're experiencing shoulder pain from a recent auto or industrial accident, or if you have been dealing with chronic pain in your shoulder for a while, a chiropractor on our team may be able to help. A lot of our new patients wonder how a chiropractor can help them with their problems. In order to understand how a chiropractor can care for you, it's important to assess how the process works. We at Marin Regenerative Health serving Novato, CA, know a lot about shoulder pain relief.
How a Chiropractor on Our Team Cares for Shoulder Pain
In most patients, shoulder pain is typically the result of a misalignment of the muscles in the shoulder and spine. In a healthy person the muscles of the body each have a proper position. This allows a person to have a full range of motion and live pain free.
Sometimes these muscles become misaligned. This can occur as the result of a massive force, such as an auto accident, or it can happen slowly over time. When these muscles move out of place, they can put additional pressure on the nerves. That can cause them to send pain signals to the brain.
To help provide pain relief, a chiropractor on our team moves the muscles of the back and shoulder after they assess their proper positions. This is done through a series of special movements that will slowly move the muscles over time. Even this initial small movement of the muscles will alleviate some pressure from the nerves in the shoulder, neck and back. Patients often leave reporting that they feel better and have some pain relief.
Over the next several days, however, the muscles in the affected area will try to move back to the spots that they have become accustomed to being in. As this happens, the pain will gradually return. A way to help fix this is to have the chiropractor perform another adjustment.
Over the course of several weeks of chiropractic care, the inflammation in the muscles may reduce to the point that the muscles will no longer automatically revert back to their unhealthy posistions. As the pain goes down, the swelling should go down. This should make it so that the muscles have the room to sit and move properly and provide lasting pain relief.
We can also use other regenerative medicine techniques to make the process go quicker as well. Talk to a chiropractor on our team about how other types of regenerative medicine may be able to help provide care for you.
