Shoulder Pain Treatment from Experts

Any time is a bad time to have a shoulder injury, and it is particularly tough to manage. Chiropractic adjustments, and physiotherapy treatment are two of the most effective methods for treating pain as they target its source directly, resulting in a swifter recovery without the need for risky medicine or expensive surgery. If you have been hurt in a car crash, we want to assist you in recovering so you do not suffer long-term consequences.

Why Seek Should Pain Treatment

It is important to seek medical care as automobile accidents may result in serious injuries, sometimes without you even knowing it at the moment. It’s crucial to seek medical care if you are hurt, because untreated injuries may develop into chronic pain if not treated. Shoulder problems, for example, may not be obvious right after the incident. If you sustained a car accident in Oregon and have auto insurance, you may be eligible for personal injury protection (PIP) insurance, which would cover any and all costs associated with your treatment. It’s best to seek medical care before assuming that the pain will go away on its own.

What to Expect from Treatment at Portland Wellness Care

Before we begin a recovery program, we evaluate your condition and perform any necessary diagnostic testing like the range of motion and pain tolerance, in order to determine the most suitable treatment. Chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, and medical massage therapy are among the noninvasive therapies we offer patients who require rehabilitation after an injury. Portland Wellness Care is here to help those in need of post-injury rehabilitation!

Shoulder Pain: Causes & Effects

Rotator cuff tendons becoming trapped beneath the shoulder bone is the most frequent cause of shoulder pain. Inflamed or damaged tendons result in rotator cuff tendinitis or bursitis. Causes of shoulder pain include the following:

  • Nerve injury that leads to abnormal shoulder movement
  • Tears of the rotator cuff tendons
  • Poor shoulder posture and mechanics
  • Broken shoulder bone
  • Dislocation of the shoulder
  • Shoulder separation

 

A shoulder injury can cause a variety of painful symptoms. These are the most frequent consequences of a shoulder injury:

  • Muscle stiffness and weakness
  • Limited range of motion
  • Neck pain, arm pain, or back pain
  • A clicking, popping, or grinding sensation when you move your arm

 

The good news is that shoulder pain can be treated with noninvasive remedies like chiropractic adjustments and acupuncture. The shoulder joint and the surrounding soft tissues are sensitive, and that is where we focus during our healing approach. It may seem like a long and difficult process to recover from a shoulder injury, but we are able to relieve your pain and improve your mobility without the use of prescription drugs or invasive procedures.

We’d be happy to discuss treatment options if you’ve been injured. Contact us today for a free consultation if you have any pain associated with your shoulder, so we can help you get back on track as soon as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

Shoulder pain is very common. It can stem from repetitive overuse, such as sports-specific activity or work. It is also common from trauma or injury, such as a sports injury, fall, or lifting overhead.

This depends on the severity of the injury. Shoulder sprains and strains from repetitive load and tendonitis and bursitis can last anywhere from 2 weeks to 2-3 months. Shoulder pain from trauma or significant injury where a tendon or joint tissue is moderately damaged can take several months to recover, and in some cases may require surgical intervention.

Home care consists of rest, heat or ice, stretching, and pain medication. Chiropractic care, massage, and acupuncture, along with physiotherapy to reduce shoulder pain and stiffness, increase ROM and increase joint function and strength are the best treatment options available.

This is entirely dependent on severity of injury. Minor shoulder injuries can heal with time, though more significant injury often requires therapies for a full recovery.

Yes, chiropractors who are specially trained in rehabilitation and physiotherapy are first  line physicians to diagnose and treat shoulder pain.

Both can be extremely beneficial, depending on patient pain tolerance and injury severity.

Physiotherapy is excellent for managing and rehabilitating shoulder injuries.
