Chiropractic Care For Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain is one of the most frequent complaints in our Tulsa Chiropractic office, especially in those over the age of 40. Shoulders are complicated joints, consisting of many connection of muscles, tendons, and ligaments to bone. Soft tissue injuries are very common, and can lead to pain, stiffness and restricted ability to move the arm.
How serious is the shoulder injury?
Most shoulder injuries are not serious and don't require surgery. Mild injuries may respond well to a few days of rest and the application of ice packs. But if your shoulder pain persists, or worsens, a diagnostic workup and treatment by our Tulsa chiropractor on 55th and Memorial is the place to start. Chiropractic care is considered to be the first conservative step to take when treating joint pain. Dr. Cole can take X-rays of the shoulder, asses the injury through diagnostic tests, and determine an effective treatment plan for your unique situation.
Shoulder Pain Symptoms Shoulder pain often comes on suddenly, but can also worsen gradually or become a chronic problem. In addition to pain, a shoulder joint can often be swollen. The pain can be dull or sharp, often with a shooting sensation upon movement. You may not be able to move your arm up, back, or straight out. Sometimes, the shoulder won't move much at all, or seems "frozen" in place.
