Unless you have had shoulder pain, you may have never considered just how important your shoulders are to your everyday life and activities. The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body and is used in almost everything we do. Holding a child, waving hello, talking on the phone, texting, typing, cooking, eating, even sleeping —almost everything we do involves the shoulders in some important way.
But because the shoulder is so mobile, it is also very susceptible to injury from straining, twisting, impact, or overuse. And since we use it for so many common activities, an injury to the shoulder can limit your mobility and keep you from doing many of the things you need to do, as well as the things you love to do.
There may be many reasons for shoulder pain, so a thorough examination will be necessary to determine the cause of your discomfort. However, many of the patients we see at Travis Chiropractic in Tulsa have pain resulting from:

Shoulder injuries and problems that go untreated can lead to long-term pain and disability. If you have shoulder pain, it is important to have a professional help you determine the cause and the best course of action for healing. Please call us immediately if you have any of the following symptoms:
For years, people who suffered from shoulder pain in Tulsa had to resort to surgery, painful physical therapy, and prescription drugs. However, if you call us as soon as your symptoms develop, you have an excellent chance to reverse the damage and find relief without medication or surgery.

We are in the office this week Monday - Wednesday normal hours 9:30 am - 12:30 pm and 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm.
We are going to be taking very careful measures to ensure your safety and health over the next few weeks. These measures include allowing our patients to stay in their vehicles while they wait for their turn to be treated.
Please call the office when you are in the parking lot (please not before) and we will call you back when we are ready for you. Of course, if you would like to come into the office as normal, this is perfectly acceptable as well.
We will also be bypassing the traction table treatments in order to streamline treatment and allow for further efficiency. Finally, we will be alternating patients in-between the normal adjusting room and the exam room, thus giving our staff an opportunity to thoroughly disinfect the treatment tables IN-BETWEEN EVERY SINGLE PATIENT.
Please call us if you have any questions: 918-296-7587
