Are you suffering from a painful shoulder?

Shoulder conditions that limit movement are very common and are mostly caused by injuries affecting the shoulder joint, muscles, tendons, ligaments and cartilage. As the shoulder has a high degree of flexibility, it is therefore less stable and more prone to injuries than other joints of the body. Since the nerves that supply the shoulder and arm originate from the neck and upper spine, conditions involving the neck can also commonly contribute to pain in the shoulder.

What’s causing your shoulder pain?

Shoulder Pain Some conditions we treat include:
  • Chronic shoulder pain and stiffness
  • Shoulder muscle spasm and tension
  • Rotator cuff disorders such as tears and strains
  • Frozen shoulder
Our experienced chiropractors can identify the cause of your shoulder pain, utilising a range of assessments to formulate a diagnosis and subsequent treatment plan. Specialized diagnostic tests such as xray, ultrasound and/or MRI scan are sometimes required.

What’s causing your shoulder pain?

Shoulder Pain Your treatment begins by naturally relieving pain and inflammation through chiropractic adjustments to improve the function of the shoulder and cervical spine. As your shoulder begins to heal, we help you restore range of movement before moving on to increase muscle strength to stabilize the shoulder and reduce the risk of further injury or aggravation. Your chiropractor will provide you with suitable rehabilitative exercises to complete at home that will assist in your recovery. At Brighton Wellness Group, we take a collaborative approach to ensure the best outcomes for our patients by drawing on the expertise of a range of practitioners to not only help you recover faster, but set you on a path to greater health and wellbeing. Your chiropractor may recommend treatment from other practitioners during the recovery and rehabilitation phase so you see the best results possible.
