Shoulder Pain Q & A
What injuries cause shoulder pain and tightness?
The shoulder is made up of a ball-and-socket joint housed by multiple muscles and tendons. This offers a wide range of movement in the shoulder area but can also be the reason behind injury. Repetitive motion injuries can cause pain and tightness throughout the shoulder. Sudden injuries, strains and sprains, instability, dislocations, frozen shoulder and pinched nerves can limit your range of motion and cause weakness and stiffness in the shoulder and arm. If the pain is not treated it can progressively get worse when trying to perform certain tasks. It can also produce inflammation, swelling, loss of range of motion and flexibility, weakness in the affected shoulder and a feeling of tightness.
What treatment options do you offer?
At DMC Healthcare, Dr. Weddle will design a program for your specific needs. After a thorough examination uncovers the exact nature of the shoulder pain, many different options can be introduced to alleviate pain and bring you back to health and wellness. Chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, and corrective exercises are just some of the treatments that can be provided for shoulder pain. Dr. Weddle is certified in active release technique which is a type of soft tissue therapy that helps relieve tight muscles and trigger points, greatly reducing joint stress or muscular pains.
How long will it take before I experience relief?
Depending upon the nature of your shoulder pain it can take several sessions before you are back to 100 percent. This can include factors such as the severity of the injury, the length of time you’ve had it, any underlying health conditions preventing you from healing quickly. However, after the first treatment with Dr. Weddle, you will find significant pain relief and increase the range of motion in the shoulder. It is best to contact the office to find out the treatment options available to start the healing process and get you back on the road to your best health.
