Shoulder pain is a common presenting complaint at chiropractic clinics. The shoulder joint is one of the more complex joints in the body and it range of movement is greater than any other joint in the body.
Common Condition of the Shoulder
At your first consultation the chiropractor will interview you and discuss how your symptoms developed, what limitations you are experiencing and what worsens/lessens your symptoms. This will be followed by an orthopaedic examination which will lead to one of the following diagnoses:
- Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis)
- Impingement syndrome
- Rotator cuff injury
- SLAP tears (cartilage tear)
- Arthritic pain
- Referred pain from the neck or upper back
At this point the chiropractor will determine which treatment is most appropriate to address your condition and will either carry out the treatment themselves – if appropriate – or refer you to one of the other specialists in our clinic.
