Chiropractic care is typically sought out by people seeking relief from neck or back pain. At Dr. Kent Carlomagno’s Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center, we are also skilled in treating extremities like the knees, elbows, and the shoulders. The shoulder joint is the body’s most mobile joint. It is surrounded by nerves, tendons, bursa, and other tissues which can all experience irritation and cause pain. This complex structure may require your chiropractor to assess your overall health and condition to target the root of the problem.
Shoulder pain can have many causes. Whether pain began after an injury or has increased over time, chiropractic treatment is a safe and effective way to treat damage to both hard and soft tissue. When shoulder pain is caused by joint irritation, relief can often be achieved through an adjustment. Pain in the muscles can be addressed by massage or stimulation therapy, and your chiropractor will recommend exercise and stretches if needed.
