As a chiropractor who has been practicing for more than 35 years, I have seen many patients suffering from shoulder discomfort. It’s a complicated joint. There are numerous bursas, bones, tendons muscles, ligaments and muscles that are associated to the shoulder. Additionally, there is an elongated capsule of fibrous fluid that surrounds the joint. The joint can move in all directions.
One of the most important characteristics that is unique to the shoulder area is the fact that it is connected with the neck, which is also known as the cervical spine. Nerves enter the openings between cervical spine’s bones that connect to muscles, which allow the joint to move freely and in a proper manner.
The treatment of shoulder discomfort with chiropractic aims to correct any movement that is not optimal or misalignment of bones that make up the cervical spine, and consequently improve the muscular performance of the shoulder joint. In addition, treatment for injuries to the shoulder joint must be treated with chiropractic treatment.
I remember a patient named George, who sought me out after having surgery on his rotator cuff. The surgery has improved the shoulder’s movement substantially, but he felt moderate discomfort when performing specific shoulder movements. As I examined George I discovered that there were some misalignments in the neck bones and a few minor restrictions to motion of the bones of the socket of his shoulder. The chiropractic manipulation (sometimes called the chiropractor adjustment) aids in re-aligning the spine of his patient and restore normal motion in the joint of his shoulder. After this, George was able to experience complete shoulder pain relief as well as normal shoulder movement.
A patient I have, Tom, had surgery to repair a labral tear in the shoulder. His recovery was initially satisfactory, but it seemed to slow down within a few months following the procedure. He claimed that his pain was reduced by about 80percent following the surgical procedure. He did experience some minor post-surgical shoulder pain in both rest and activities. The exam of Tom discovered spinal misalignments in his neck and upper back , as well as some limitations in the motion of his scapula bone , which is commonly referred to in the form of shoulder blade. Through chiropractic adjustments, we restored normal movement as well as alignment for these regions and Tom was able to completely relieve his shoulder pain.
A study from 2018 showed post-surgical shoulder patients who had persistent painwho received chiropractic manipulations significantly improved shoulder stability and mobility. Similar studies have also reported improvements in pain, motion and shoulder stability after chiropractic treatment was administered after surgery, to relieve shoulder discomfort.
The majority of patients who visit chiropractors will find that an adjustment with a chiropractor is comfortable, safe experience since it helps to correct spinal misalignments and the locked-up movement of fixed joints of the extremities.
This is why a lot of patients opt for the natural, non-medicated gentle chiropractic treatment to ease shoulder pain after surgery.
