Shoulder Pain treatment options at Helton Chiropractic

Fall sports has brought in a fresh group of shoulder pain patients into my office. Using chiropractic adjustments, laser therapy, myofascial release, stretches, electric stim, heat, and posture correction can all play a part in getting relief. Shoulder pain is complex. It can come from an injury to the shoulder but most people don’t realize it can also be a product of poor posture, cervical disc bulges (neck,) muscle dysfunction in the chest, problems with the shoulder blade, even the TMJ. We do a full history and evaluation to determine what all is involved in getting patients back to healthy. If poor posture is not addressed, pain may return even though the muscles have healed. If alignment is but the disc is healed in the neck, the pain may return almost immediately. I’ve used the Class IV Laser Pain Therapy on many of my shoulder patients but have had some respond very well with electric muscle stimulation and heat therapy. Nearly all patients need some form of muscle tissue work to release contracted muscles that cause the shoulder to not move properly. It’s interesting to see that fewer surgeries are being done on rotator cuff tears due to the difficulty in rehabbing the shoulder while it’s healing. Movement is vital to healthy function.

  1. Thanks for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research about this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more from this post. I’m very glad to see such great information being shared freely out there.

  2. Greetings from Idaho! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to check out your blog on my iphone during lunch break.

Anyhow, fantastic site!
