Shoulder pain is a common health problem faced in the day to day life. You should see a doctor if the injury is particularly bad and you don’t see any sign of improvement. Shoulder pain can be a long term problem, if not diagnosed at the right time.
There are a number of causes behind this unbearable pain and some of it includes:
- Poor Posture
- Frozen shoulder
- Rotator cuff disorder
- Shoulder instability
- Acromioclavicular joint disorders
Sometimes even the pain in the neck can affect the functioning of the shoulders. At Alignment Chiropractic, P.C, we diagnose the cause of the shoulder pain by examining the shoulders. Under the discussion, we try to acknowledge
- If you had any injury in the past
- When the pain gets severe
- Whether it’s sudden or gradual
Depending on the condition, we send the patient under a few tests:
- Comparing the shoulders
- Checking for redness, swelling, and bruising
- Examining the bone for pain
For further checkups, we may also ask for MRI scan, X-ray, ultrasound scans, and blood tests. Based on the diagnosis comes out a treatment that will help you get rid of the problem permanently.
