A Holistic Approach to Shoulder Pain Treatment
The joints located in the shoulders are utilized more than any of the other joints located in the body. When people experience pain in their shoulders it can cause a huge disruption in the way they function and their ability to perform ordinary tasks. The chiropractic team here at Absolute Chiropractic & Wellness Center in Herndon encourages people who experience shoulder pain that lasts longer than a couple of days to have their symptoms assessed as soon as they can. Shoulder pain is a common condition; however, it should not be taken lightly. There are some conditions associated with shoulder pain that can lead to permanent damage in regards to mobility if they are not addressed in a timely manner.
Most Shoulder Conditions
Rotator cuff tendonitis is the number one cause of shoulder pain. The condition manifests as the result of the inflammation of the tendons in the shoulders. Sometimes the rotator cuff is frozen in the middle of the humeral head and the acromion. This condition is known as Impingement syndrome. This condition is also a common source of shoulder pain. Impingement syndrome along with other conditions like frozen and dislocated shoulders can cause complete immobility of the shoulder. These conditions should be addressed as soon as symptoms appear.
