A shoulder’s joints can do so much. Think about the work they do when you rotate your arm or throw a ball. In fact, the shoulder’s joints are capable of more movement than any of the other joints in the body. This may make the shoulder seem especially resilient from harm, but, in fact, the opposite is true. It is because the shoulder is capable of so much movement that it is highly susceptible to harm. If you have experienced, or are experiencing chronic shoulder pain, you know the rigidity and the pulsing one feels. You know how it is to wake up with a weak arm or the trouble you face with simple movements. If shoulder pain is rather new to you, perhaps not chronic but as a result of some accident that has only just occurred, the pain is different, but by no means less. When the pain is fresh, it is intense and harsh.
The causes of shoulder pain can vary. Sometimes shoulder pain results from issues outside of your shoulder, where your shoulder is just a casualty in a cross fire. Sometimes the shoulder pain is a result of overuse. Many athletes experience shoulder pain as their arms are constantly in motion. Many chefs and cooks work their joints hard as well. Working your shoulder as hard as these (and many other) professions require can cause swelling and strain. It can put pressure on the soft tissue around the shoulder resulting in tendonitis or bursitis. Other common shoulder injuries are frozen shoulder, shoulder impingement, rotator cuff (the tendons that bring together the shoulder socket and the arm bone) injury, shoulder labrum tear (cartilage harm), arthritis, Tennis shoulder, and sprain.
Dr. Nektalov and the professionals at Nektalov Family Chiropractic place a heavy focus on prevention. If your work or passion requires a lot of shoulder use, be sure to stretch everyday to minimize the strain. If you work in an office or at a desk, be sure to keep a 90-degree angle with your elbows as you type. Lastly, be sure to be especially careful with heavy objects, even more so if you are grabbing them from a high-up place. If, still, you end up with shoulder pain, Dr. Nektalov will take care of you.
Dr. Nektalov and his expert team can help you stretch your shoulder to relieve pain. He can also help strengthen the shoulder and improve flexibility through various chiropractic techniques. So let the experts of soft tissue, ligaments, joints, and muscles take care of you and make you comfortable in your skin again.
