The shoulder is mobilized by a ball and socket joint, and it is one of the most mobile joints in the human body. While this enables us to perform all sorts of functions with our arms, the extreme range of motion can lead to shoulder injuries rather easily. Whether it’s a dull ache or you’re practically unable to move, King Chiropractic can help you get back in good shape.
Most injuries that cause shoulder pain are directly related to the rotator cuff.
The rotator cuff includes four muscles:
- Teres Minor
These muscles help allow your arms fluid, easy range of motion. The structures in your shoulder including muscles, tendons and ligaments, all work together to provide proper stabilization. Without the muscles in top shape, your shoulder becomes more susceptible to pain.
Shoulder pain can result from many different causes, especially if the injury is from overuse. Most people are unable to pinpoint when their shoulder “gave out,” or suspect the pain is a symptom of old age.
Some problems, like frozen shoulder, are the result of the rotator cuff syndrome leads to adhesions that develop between the shoulder’s ligaments and tendons, and it severely restrict range of shoulder motion. Without proper chiropractic treatment, the shoulder can be subject to degenerative problems such as osteoarthritis. It is important to address frozen shoulder and other types of shoulder injuries before they reach this stage.
