Your most mobile joint is your shoulder and keeping it in working condition is essential to your quality of life.
Ignoring your shoulder issues has the potential to cause long term nagging conditions. Pinpointing the cause behind your shoulder pain is essential in appropriately treating and recovering from your shoulder condition.
Shoulder Pain Treatment
There are numerous sources of shoulder discomfort, however, the most frequent causes of shoulder pain are:
- Tightening in the neck and upper back area
- Vertebrae misalignment
- Unusual movements
- Injuries from sports or car accidents
Compression or injury to your upper back and neck vertebrae will cause damage and irritation to the nerves that lead to your shoulder. Numerous problems can arise from nerve disruption, which can be caused by even a minor vertebrae misalignment. Shoulder pain is often the result of a hidden spinal injury.
Symptoms of Shoulder Injury
Shoulder pain and its limitations to your range of motion can be immediate or progressive due to the various ways shoulder pain can be triggered. Severe issues may arise from even mild shoulder injuries. Precise treatment and a careful evaluation are needed to prevent the progression of an injury in the frequently used shoulder joint. Your shoulder should be assessed immediately if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.
