Man with shoulder InjuryIt’s time to get to the source of your shoulder pain.

The shoulder is a complex joint – in fact, it’s several joints! Treating shoulder pain requires much more than just symptom management. By approaching shoulder pain from multiple directions, we can address pain at its source to relieve and rehabilitate new or chronic discomfort.

What Causes Shoulder Pain and What Treatments are Available?

Most shoulder pain comes from inflammation or damage from injury, wear-and-tear, muscle weakness and instability, or age-related changes such as arthritis. With a targeted treatment for the muscles, bones, and tendons involved in the shoulder, patients can experience relief from new or chronic shoulder pain.

1. Regenerative Medicine Spurs Joint Regrowth and Repair

Regenerative medicine is all about working with the body’s natural functions to heal and repair itself. Through injecting healthy cells into the shoulder, this treatment helps to repair damaged or diseased tissues in the joint by kickstarting the body’s natural healing functions.

2. Chiropractic Treatment Improves Strength, Flexibility, and Alignment

There are over a dozen muscles, ligaments, bones, and tendons that make up the shoulder. Chiropractic is a non-invasive and safe method of strengthening and rehabilitating the body and can be a crucial component of relieving shoulder pain by ensuring that all the many parts of this system work together correctly.

3. Trigger-Point Injections Relieve Muscle Knots

Any time you’ve experienced a muscle knot, you’ve felt the development of a muscular trigger point. These knots of tension cause pain to radiate throughout the muscle and surrounding body. Trigger point injections (TPI) deliver medicine directly to the muscle knot to relieve tension. Over time, TPI can significantly alleviate shoulder pain.
