Shoulder Pain After a Car Accident

Car Accident

At The BAC Clinic, we have shared the benefits of chiropractic care with residents of Sioux City, IA, for many years. Many of our patients visit us for the first time seeking auto accident injury treatment. Read on to learn more about what causes shoulder pain and how we treat it.

Causes of Should Pain

There are several ways you can hurt your shoulder that require chiropractic care. While some injuries/conditions only require one treatment others may require several treatments. Let’s look at some common causes of shoulder pain that your chiropractor can help relieve, or eliminate your pain.

Arthritis, bursitis, gout, tendonitis, nerve pain such as pinched nerves, and problems with ligaments, and connective tissue are often strains and sprains that can cause you shoulder pain. Frozen shoulder is another type of pain that our chiropractor can help with.

Chiropractic Treatments

Before you can begin treatments, you will be asked about your history, and a physical exam of the back, neck, shoulder and arm area will be done. You must have a diagnostic test or two such as an MRI, or CT scan just to make sure your shoulder injury does not need surgical repair.

An adjustment gentle so as not to aggravate the surrounding tissue, tendons, ligaments, and muscles can cause you pain. There are different tools we can use to help with an adjustment. Practicing proper posture, and exercises can help keep the shoulder pain at bay after the adjustments.

You may have shoulder pain that comes and go; however, if you feel any discomfort at all in your shoulder, it is a sign from your body to seek treatment.
