Get Relief From Shoulder Pain

The shoulder is one of the largest and most complex joints in the body. Unfortunately, when there is dysfunction in your shoulder, you feel it in almost everything you do. Those who suffer from shoulder pain know exactly how debilitating the effects can be. Any type of repetitive motion can result in a shoulder injury and nearly 70% of people will experience some form of debilitating shoulder pain in their lifetime.

For some, shoulder pain can become disruptive to the point where it affects sleep, limits your ability to work, and even makes the simplest activities, such as getting dressed, difficult or nearly impossible.

Symptoms of Shoulder Injuries

Whether you’re lifting weights, swinging a golf club, throwing a ball, or working in the garden, these repetitive motions can cause the shoulder to lose some of its natural function, negatively impacting how the ligaments, muscles, and bones in the shoulder work together.

Symptoms of shoulder injuries that can require medical attention include:

  • Inability to move your shoulder without feeling pain.
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Muscle spasm
  • Swelling
  • Weakness in the shoulders and arms
  • Visible structural changes
  • Shoulder stiffness

The symptoms you experience will depend on the underlying cause of your pain. If you’ve been struggling with ongoing shoulder pain for more than three days and the pain is continuing to worsen, contact Cornerstone Chiropractic Health Center today to schedule an appointment.
