Suffering From Shoulder Pain?

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.

Shoulder Pain in Tulsa

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:

 

  • Neck and upper back tightness
  • Spinal misalignment
  • Arthritis
  • Abnormal patterns of movement
  • Athletic injuries and automobile accidents

 

While your shoulder pain may be the result of inflammation of the shoulder joint itself, it is highly likely that your pain is related to an issue in your spinal column. All the nerves in the shoulder and arm originate in the spinal cord. When these nerves become compressed and irritated due to misalignment in the neck and upper back, the result is often shoulder pain and immobility.
