If you are in Springfield, have shoulder pain and don’t know what to do, this is for you. Did you know over 7.5 million Americans each year struggle with shoulder pain and it is one of the most popular reasons to visit a chiropractor to get the condition managed and the patient out of pain?
The simple reason for shoulder pain is anatomy, but there are many reasons for what actually causes it. The shoulder is made up of three major joints that when functioning properly, have an almost seamless interaction between them. The joints glide and function is normal. If any of them are experiencing issues, then the whole shoulder will begin to dysfunction and over time inflammation will arise, more and more dysfunction will creep in and eventually the condition becomes chronic.
While treatment can be applied to most Springfield shoulder pain issues, obviously the earlier the condition is caught the better. It means less pain for one thing and less treatments.
Ultimately prevention is even better than cure. Before you do something strenuous, work out what you need to do before you act. If you are lifting something heavy, check your positioning and apply proper lifting protocol. Can someone else help you even? If doing sports, warm up and warm down appropriately and ensure that you move as best as possible. Keep in good shape, establish a strong core for back and belly and this will also help reduce shoulder pain according to research.
Many shoulder pain conditions include tendinitis, burstitis, instability of the joints, wear and tear, arthritis, nerve damage and injury. The conditions can also be from a known source and be acute, or develop over time and become chronic.
Moreover, dysfunction may even be due to another part of the body that has an issue that creates undue stress on the shoulder.
