One of the most common reasons for chiropractic visits for musculoskeletal complaints is painful shoulder problems. I strongly suggest you to visit https://www.fallschurch.palmercare.com/post/how-chiropractic-care-can-help-with-shoulder-pain to learn more about this. The shoulder joint is the area of the body where the humerus connects to the scapula, as well as the surrounding muscles. The shoulder has the most range of motion of all of the body’s main joints. On the other hand, due to its wide range of motion, it is relatively unstable and susceptible to injury. The humerus (ball) has a wider head than the socket in which it is kept in the shoulder joint. Muscles, tendons, and ligaments anchor the bones of the shoulder joint together to keep it stable. Tissue deterioration, loss of function, and disruption of the supporting musculature may all be caused by overuse injuries, degenerative changes, and a lack of use or movement.
The clavicle (collarbone), scapula (shoulder blade), and humerus (upper arm bone) are the three osseous structures that make up the shoulder, as well as the supporting musculature, ligaments, and tendons. The shoulder joints are the articulations between the bones of the shoulder. The “rotator cuff” refers to the muscle groups and tendons that stabilise the shoulder. The supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor, and subscapularis are the muscles that keep the humerus (ball) in the glenoid fossa (socket).
There are several different types of shoulder conditions; however, the aim of this article is to provide a general overview of three different types and how chiropractic treatment can help improve shoulder health and function.
Inability to carry objects or use your arm without pain, pain when sleeping or at rest, pain that is ongoing and lasts more than a few days, inability to lift your arm, swelling or bruising around the shoulder area, redness, joint size changes, or other obvious unusual changes are some signs that you might be experiencing a shoulder problem or shoulder pain that requires further examination. The pain may be localised, affecting only the shoulder joint, or it may be referred, affecting the entire arm and probably the forearm, as well as the middle back and lower neck. Via the various nerve pathways, gallbladder, liver, or heart disease, as well as cervical spine disease, can all cause referred pain into the shoulder. Shoulder blade or scapula pain, on the other hand, is more likely to be caused by a problem with the cervical spine.
