Symptoms You May be Experiencing with Shoulder Pain
What most people call the shoulder, is actually several joints and tendons and muscles combined together to allow range of motion to the arm.
The shoulder is made up of three bones: the upper arm bone (humerus), the shoulder blade (scapula), and the collarbone (clavicle). The tendons, muscles, and joints that surround these bones provide the range of motion often used in everyday tasks.
Most shoulder pain problems involve the muscles, tissues, ligaments, and tendons surrounding the bones in the shoulder. Tendonitis, bursitis, and arthritis, are all common issues with the shoulder.
According to the Cleveland Clinic, common causes of shoulder pain include:
- Strains from overexertion
- Shoulder joint instability
- Collar or upper arm bone fractures
- “Frozen” shoulder
- Pinched nerves
Symptoms of shoulder pain include:
- Limited range of motion
- Pain with overhead use of the arm
- Weakness in the shoulder muscles
- Difficulty or pain when elevating the arm
- Pain when completing ordinary tasks
Unfortunately, many patients ignore temporary shoulder pain. If symptoms persist, we encourage you to be seen by Healing Hands Chiropractic as soon as possible.
Dr. Dee can identify the source of your shoulder pain, and will recommend the best course of treatment to get you back in the game and living life pain free!
How Can Chiropractic Treatment Help Shoulder Pain
Chiropractic care is most often sought after for neck and back pain. However, chiropractors are trained to treat far more than that, including shoulders and other extremities.
Shoulder pain can often be caused by joint irritation or tissue irritation. The shoulder joint is the most mobile joint in the body. It’s surrounded by important nerves, tendons, bursa, and other tissues which can become irritated or inflamed.
As an incredibly mobile joint, it is possible for the shoulder joint to shift out of place. This can cause inflammation, irritation, and spasms in the surrounding tissues, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
Gentle adjustments to the shoulder can be performed to realign it to its proper place. Back and neck adjustments will also help relieve shoulder discomfort as subluxations in the back and spine can contribute to shoulder pain.
Like any other pain condition, the sooner you seek treatment, the better. Dr. Dee at Healing Hands Chiropractic in Murfreesboro, TN can help treat your shoulder pain with safe, natural, and effective chiropractic care.
Signs that you should seek treatment for your shoulder pain include:
- Shoulder pain that persists beyond a few days
- Recurring shoulder pain, even if it eventually clears up on its own
- Difficulty carrying objects or using the arm
- Deformity of the shoulder joint
- Shoulder pain that persists at night or during rest
- Inability to raise the arm
- Swelling or bruising around the shoulder joint
The proper treatment of shoulder pain depends entirely on what is causing the pain. At Healing Hands Chiropractic, Dr. Dee will carefully and gently identify the source of your pain. Based on her findings, she will come up with a proper course of treatment.
This course of treatment will treat your shoulder pain at its source, something that over the counter or prescription medications cannot do. By treating shoulder pain at its source through chiropractic, Dr. Dee can help keep your shoulder pain at bay!

What are the Benefits of Chiropractic?
By identifying shoulder pain at its source, Dr. Dee is able to reduce the pain as well as its frequency. Other benefits of chiropractic include:
- Increased energy
- Better sleep
- Improved posture
- Increased range of motion
- Quicker recovery time
- Elevated mood
- Less frequent injuries
- Improved focus
Chiropractic’s emphasis on restoring the shoulder joints, neck, and spine to their proper alignment is key to treating shoulder pain at its source. Why? Because the spinal column houses the nervous system, which controls every cell in the body!
When subluxations, or misalignments, exist in these areas, the nervous system’s ability to communicate is impaired. This causes issues such as shoulder pain, neck pain, back pain, sciatica, headaches, seasonal allergies, low energy, and more.
By correcting these subluxations, Dr. Dee at Healing Hands Chiropractic, located in Murfreesboro, TN can help improve your overall level of wellness. Chiropractic care can help reduce your level of pain, naturally, safely, and effectively. It treats your pain at its source.
Common treatments for pain such as over the counter or prescription medications do not treat pain at its source. They simply treat the symptoms of the pain, allowing the pain to return as soon as the medication wears off. You can get long term, lasting relief with chiropractic care!
Through the extensive knowledge of the staff at Healing Hands Chiropractic, Dr. Dee and her staff will correct subluxations that may be causing your pain. By restoring the proper function and movement of the body, including the shoulder, you can start living your best life, today!
