Your problem might be:
- An acute problem caused by a sports injury with strained, sore muscles or a rotator cuff tear in the shoulder
- A chronic condition, something you have suffered with for a long time such as neuralgia or rheumatism
- A condition that is getting worse over time, such as frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) or carpal tunnel syndrome
- Referred pain that does not originate in your shoulder or arm, but which comes from a neck or upper back problem
… or as a result of a variety of other causes
Your Chiropractic Treatment Plan
Unlike some medical treatments that mask the symptoms without treating their source, a Chiropractic assessment comprises a number of diagnostic tests to find out the exact cause. This is vital in successfully treating your condition and is a reason why your Chiropractic treatment plan might be very different from another person who seems to have similar symptoms.
The diagnostic tests are extremely thorough at Eastern – and if Doncaster Chiropractor, Nereo Rigoni determines that the cause of your shoulder or arm pain is not suitable for Chiropractic treatment, you will be referred to another Specialist for appropriate care.
How Can A Chiropractor Help?
Nereo will use gentle, safe and effective Chiropractic techniques to get you out of pain and mobile again as quickly as possible in a treatment plan designed specifically for the cause of your problem. In addition, he can also help you to prevent future problems by advising you on posture and lifestyle habits that could trigger a recurrence.
Did you know that many cases of arm and shoulder pain are caused by carrying shopping or other heavy bags incorrectly?
For example, you should always carry bags or shopping with the palms facing in to the side, towards your leg and never carry anything with your palms facing forward. The ‘palm forward’ method puts additional stress on the wrist, elbow and shoulder because of the way the arm is rotated. Lifting any heavy bag onto a counter or into the car with the arm in the palm forward position can cause immediate injury to the underlying soft tissues or can weaken joints making future injury more likely.
As you can see, a visit to Nereo at Eastern is very thorough assessment. Holistic, conservative, Chiropractic care can effectively treat the shoulder and arm pain problem you have right now, but ongoing treatment and advice can help to prevent a recurrence too.
