The shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint and the most mobile one in the body. We use our shoulders for a wide range of routine tasks, from throwing a ball to reaching up to grab something off the shelf. Shoulder pain results when any part of the shoulder joint becomes impaired and chiropractic treatment can often effectively relieve any discomfort. At Back & Neck Pain Center near Palm Harbor, Florida, we offer shoulder pain treatment from an experienced chiropractor, Dr. Monte Venis. For more than 30 years, he’s been trusted by patients to help them get well and stay well, and he will recommend the best treatment to help heal and improve your shoulder condition.
The shoulder joint is made up of three bones: the humerus (upper arm bone), scapula (shoulder blade), and clavicle (collarbone). The scapula has a rounded socket where the head of the humerus fits in, and surrounding all of these bones are muscles and tendons that allow the joint to move freely. When the muscles, tendons, or bones become impaired, shoulder pain results. Impairment can involve inflammation, a tear, a dislocation, or a fracture, or it can result from a chronic condition like osteoarthritis.
When you consult with Dr. Venis for shoulder pain treatment, he will learn more about your lifestyle, medical history, and the mechanisms of your injury. Then, he may recommend imaging scans to better understand what is causing the pain. After that, a treatment plan will be worked up that may include some of the following chiropractic techniques:
