Shoulder pain is very common and can have several different causes that our chiropractors at Chiro & Sports Med can examine, diagnose and treat. All arm movements are dependent on a good, normal rhythmic movement between the shoulder blades, spine, clavicle and shoulder. If shoulder mechanics do not work, this will give the wrong strain in the neck, back,shoulders and arms. Common features for the most common shoulder injuries are acute injury or unnecessary strain over time.
The position and support muscle of the shoulder blades play a particularly important role in all arm movements. Unilateral posture allows the arms to be held slightly out from the side of the body, with round, forward curved shoulders. In this position, lose scapula its muscular support, the small, stabilising shoulder muscles are overloaded and it can get cramped for the tendons that go under the clavicle until the ball joint in the shoulder. Over time this can lead to inflammation and degenerative changes in tendons and joints. Pain in the shoulders can also come from wear and calcification, narrow channels of nerve, muscles and blood vessels, as well as shoulder capsule may harden, also called frozen shoulder. All these issues must be thoroughly examined by a chiropractor for the proper treatment can be implemented.
