Chiropractic Adjustments 

Chiropractic adjustments can be an effective option for treating shoulder pain. Adjusting the spine and surrounding muscles can help restore functionality to the shoulder and reduce inflammation and muscle tightness. Regular adjustments can also be beneficial for reducing nerve irritation that may be causing the pain. 

By using gentle, specific manipulation of the spine, chiropractors can help to release tension and improve the range of motion in the shoulder. This can help to reduce pain and improve overall joint and muscle health.

Common Causes of Shoulder Pain 

Shoulder pain is a common issue that can be caused by a variety of factors. It can be caused by overuse of the shoulder or by a traumatic injury, such as a fall or collision. Poor posture and age-related changes in the shoulder joint can also cause shoulder pain. Repetitive motions, such as those used in sports or jobs requiring lifting, can also lead to shoulder pain. Shoulder pain can also be caused by conditions such as arthritis, bursitis, and rotator cuff tears. If you are experiencing shoulder pain.


Bursitis of the shoulder can cause significant pain and discomfort due to the inflammation of the bursa, a small sac-like structure located between the shoulder joint and the rotator cuff muscles. Shoulder bursitis can cause pain when moving the shoulder, particularly when lifting, pushing, and pulling, and when the arm is raised above the head. It may also cause a dull ache at rest and swelling and tenderness in the affected area. Treatment for bursitis of the shoulder typically includes rest, ice, chiropractic adjustments, and the use of anti-inflammatory medications.

Traumatic Injury 

Traumatic injury to the shoulder can cause pain due to damage to the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and other shoulder structures. This type of injury may also cause inflammation, swelling, and even a decreased range of motion. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to repair the damage caused by the injury. Fortunately, various treatments are available to help manage the pain associated with traumatic shoulder injuries.


Arthritis is a common cause of shoulder pain, as the inflammation of the joints can lead to swelling and stiffness in the shoulder. This can be especially true for those with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, as the degeneration of the joint’s cartilage can result in sharp pain in the shoulder area. Additionally, those with psoriatic arthritis may experience shoulder pain due to the inflammation of the tendons and ligaments that attach the shoulder to the skeletal structure.

Rotator Cuff 

Rotator cuff injuries can cause shoulder pain due to inflammation of the tendons and muscles of the shoulder joint. A rotator cuff is a group of tendons and muscles that stabilize and support the shoulder, and an injury to any of these structures can lead to shoulder pain and reduced range of motion. Common treatments for rotator cuff injuries include physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments, specific exercises, rest, and anti-inflammatory medications.
