Wouldn’t it be wonderful to wake up in the morning with no pain at all? For most of us, that is wishful thinking. For those who experience shoulder pain, one bad night can ruin an entire day. What is the underlying cause of shoulder pain? What can be done to fix it?
There are a few conditions that can be the source of shoulder pain. Here are some examples:
- Rheumatoid Arthritis. This painful disorder gradually erodes joint linings and can eventually eat away at the bone.
- Osteoarthritis. At the ends of your bones, there is a protective layer of cartilage. This common form of arthritis slowly deteriorates that layer.
- Rotary Cuff Injury. Repeated motion injuries in the shoulder can lead to damage. The muscles and tendons around the shoulder can be affected and lead to pain.
- Polymyalgia Rheumatica. This disorder involves the inflammation of blood vessels. Over time, the disease can lead to muscle stiffness and pain.
Attacking Shoulder Pain Issues for Permanent Relief
Upper cervical chiropractors are specially trained in matters such as those described above. The two uppermost vertebrae can cause a host of chronic issues when they are misaligned. Through meticulous examination and measurements, as well as gentle realignments using the NUCCA technique, we can help restore health to damaged nerves and vessels. Proper alignment also improves posture we can ease the pressure placed on the neck and shoulders. When these benefits come together, many who suffer from shoulder pain experience the relief that once seemed so far out of reach.
