Shoulder pain is a common ailment caused by a variety of factors, such as injury, poor posture, and arthritis. The ball and socket joint in the shoulder is one of the most mobile in the body, and as a result, it is susceptible to injury. Chiropractors are experts at treating shoulder pain, using a combination of adjustments and therapies to realign the spine as well as correcting postural problems contributing to the pain and restoring function.
The shoulder joint is a ball and socket joint, allowing a wide range of motion. The ball is the upper arm bone or humerus, and the socket is part of the scapula or shoulder blade. The muscles and tendons around the shoulder joint provide stability and support.
Proper posture is crucial for good shoulder health. When the shoulders are slumped forward or raised up too high, it can put unnecessary stress on the joint, leading to pain. A chiropractor can help correct poor posture and restore proper alignment, which can help relieve shoulder pain.
