If you suffer from shoulder pain, you are well aware that it can affect even daily activities such as eating and sleeping. It can make even the simplest tasks feel like chores. Here are just a few common causes of shoulder pain:
- Rotator cuff injury
A misalignment of the upper neck can also cause shoulder discomfort. When there is such a misalignment, the shoulder nerves can become irritated and cause feelings of numbness and tingling in the arm and hand. There are natural methods for treating this underlying cause of shoulder pain. Where can you find it?
Upper Cervical Care for Shoulder Pain
At our upper cervical chiropractic office, we use various methods to specifically pinpoint misalignments in the upper cervical area. The top two bones in the neck can easily become displaced. If you have experienced any sort of head or neck trauma, you may very well have a misalignment and should seek the care of an upper cervical chiropractor.
It is highly recommended that you seek upper cervical care rather than general chiropractic. Upper cervical adjustments are more precise and gentle. This means that pain relief is longer lasting. These adjustments are performed without the twisting, popping, and cracking that general chiropractic offers.
To start the process, we will take x-rays that determine the specific location and degree of the misalignment. Then we will develop an adjustment plan that is specific to your needs. If your shoulder pain is caused by an upper cervical misalignment, you should notice your symptoms diminishing. The pain may eventually be completely resolved as the body has time to heal. Many patients have experienced such relief after just one adjustment, while others take longer to heal. If you would like an examination to see if you may have this type of misalignment, please come in today for a consultation.
