Shoulder pain includes but not limited to any pain that orginates in or around your shoulder. Shoulder pain may originate in the joint itself, or from any of the many surrounding muscles, such as the neck. Shoulder pain is a common problem with a number of different causes.
Shoulder pain can occur in the shoulder from diseases or conditions that involve the shoulder joint, the soft tissues and bones surrounding the shoulder, or the nerves that supply sensation to the shoulder area.
Some signs that shoulder pain needs immediate attention may include a decreased ability to hold objects, decreased functioning of the arm, shoulder pain that persists even while at rest. After examining the patient and locating the source of pain, chiropractic can help relieve shoulder pain and get the shoulder back to its original state.
