Can a chiropractor help with a shoulder impingement?
Absolutely! Chiropractic of shoulder impingement is an effective option for your painful shoulder.
Chiropractors can provide shoulder pain treatment including:
Chiropractic adjustments to help with joint mobility and alignment
Soft tissue therapy to reduce tension in tight muscles and tendons
Provide pain control with tools such as acupuncture and modalities such as laser and electrotherapy
Provide prescription exercises for shoulder pain
Do chiropractors work on shoulders?
Absolutely! A common misconception is that chiropractors only treat the spine. In fact, chiropractors treat the entire body head to toe. Chiropractors treat all joints – spine and extremities down to the joints of your fingers and toes!
How do you fix a misaligned shoulder?
First, start with improving your posture. Good postural alignment will help keep your shoulders aligned and happy.
Second, stretch out tight muscles. Tight neck and shoulder muscles are a common cause of shoulder impingement. They can pull your shoulder joint forward or even upward, causing misalignment and impingement.
Third, strengthen weak muscles. A lot of the time, imbalance or relative imbalances in your rotator cuff muscles can cause misalignments of your shoulder.
Last but not least, Chiropractic care. Seek the expertise from a chiropractor who can diagnose and treat misaligned shoulders and with adjustments and provide other forms of shoulder pain treatment. Early treatments are the key to a speedy recovery.
