Shoulder pain treatment at the onset of pain can avoid surgery later. Simple problems within the shoulder can when ignored often become complex. Shoulder surgery has become one of the top healthcare procedures for shoulder pain treatment in America today. This is especially true of the shoulder joint. The National Safety Council warns against ignoring shoulder pain.
Our Arlington Heights chiropractor team treat an array of muscle, bone and joint conditions. We have successfully offered patients non-surgical, non-invasive shoulder pain relief for over 35 years. Serving Arlington Heights, Mt Prospect, Rolling Meadows and surrounding suburbs since 1981 First Health Associates’ Center for Integrative Medicine is proud to offer our patients an effective, non-surgical shoulder pain treatment approach.
The shoulder is one of the most commonly injured and painful areas of the body. Because of its broad and diverse range of movement nature designed it as a very complex “ball and socket” joint. The shoulder requires precise alignment, flexibility, and coordinated muscle action to keep it working properly. If any of these become compromised, pain often develops.
Chiropractic – Effective Shoulder Pain Treatment Without Surgery
The pain can be felt as muscle tension on top of the shoulder or deeper in the joint, such as arthritis or a rotator cuff problem. Shoulder pain can be slow in developing often starting with a simple muscle imbalance that disturbs the normal shoulder joint mechanics. Surgeries often fail because the painful tissue is addressed without regards to the underlying cause. Proper shoulder pain treatment starts with locating and correcting the cause.
Our Arlington Heights chiropractor team is highly trained in treating and providing a non-invasive, non-surgical approach to shoulder pain. Our chiropractors will perform a thorough assessment of not only the shoulder, but other parts of the body that affect it. They will assess your neck and shoulder alignment (posture), flexibility and strength to locate the origin of the pain and determine the real source of the problem. Even when pain is perceived as coming from the shoulder, it may have developed because of a problem elsewhere in the body.
Depending on the severity of your pain, they may recommend that you work with our on-staff medical physician simultaneously. Our medical physician is trained in Physiatry, a non-surgical medical rehabilitation specialty. Medical physician Dr. Jason Gruss, MD is a fellow in the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and has been helping patients suffering with shoulder pain for over 13 years. By taking an integrative treatment approach, they can better manage your pain and control inflammation.
