Regenerative Medicine for Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain is one of those conditions that can impact all aspects of your life. When you’re trying to sleep, joint pain can keep you awake. When you’re trying to work, aching reduces your mobility and slows you down. This is a tricky problem to address because it has many possible causes. It’s not usually possible to just stop using one arm until it heals fully. That’s why we offer many treatment options at West Knoxville Chiropractic in Knoxville, TN. Our team can help find the right treatment for you.
What Causes Shoulder Pain?
Some of the most common causes of shoulder pain that we see at our clinic include:
- Poor posture and spinal misalignment
- Pain radiating from a herniated disc
- Pinched nerves
- Shoulder injuries that have not healed completely
- Muscle imbalances
- Repetitive stress injuries
Treatment Options for Shoulder Pain
Your chiropractor will start by diagnosing what has caused your shoulder pain. They will then discuss your options with you. Chiropractic adjustments are one possible solution. Here, careful and precise manipulations are used to take the pressure off your joints and re-align your spine.
Rehabilitative exercise is another important step in healing. You may be ‘prescribed’ exercises to strengthen the back, core, or shoulder itself. Stronger muscles are better able to support the shoulder joint. They can also reduce your risk of re-injury.
Particularly stubborn pain, nerve damage, and other injuries may respond well to e-stim. Here a mild electric current is passed over the injured area. Some people have experienced dramatic pain relief from e-stim.
Another option we offer at our clinic is trigger point injections if necessary. This involves liquid nutrients being injected right at the site of injury. These injections make sure that the damaged soft tissues are getting all the natural building blocks they need to heal.
