As one of the most mobile joints in our body, the shoulder joint is responsible for a wide range of tasks. We use our shoulders to throw a ball, cross our arms, or reach up and grab a box of food off the shelf. It is because we use our shoulders so frequently that they are susceptible to injury. If you’re experiencing shoulder pain and are looking for chiropractic treatment to relieve your discomfort, come to Back & Neck Pain Center near Oldsmar, Florida. Our experienced chiropractor, Dr. Monte Venis, will be glad to help you. He’s been committed to helping patients get well and stay well for over 30 years.
