Shoulder Pain Relief SpecialistWhether your shoulder pain is the result of a car accident, work injury or sleeping in an awkward position, leading chiropractor Dr. Scott Evans of VIDA Chiropractic Studio, located in Denver, Colorado, offers effective, all-natural relief and correction, by remedying the underlying musculoskeletal and/or neurological cause.
Natural Treatment for Shoulder Pain Relief with Your Denver Chiropractor
Swing your arm around and you can see how your shoulder has the widest range of motion of all your joints. Supported by muscles, ligaments and tendons anchoring it through the upper back and chest, the shoulder powers all kinds of sports and daily activities. Its flexibility also makes it vulnerable to injury and pain, however. If you struggle with shoulder pain, schedule an appointment with Denver chiropractor Dr. Scott Evans for effective, natural pain relief treatment.
Chiropractic Care Alleviates Shoulder Pain and Injury Naturally
Sports shoulder injury, sleeping in the wrong position, and overuse can all impact your shoulder and its connecting structures. Chiropractic care harnesses the body’s natural healing abilities to restore alignment, balance and range of motion so you can get back to living a wellness lifestyle with a pain-free shoulder. Some of the most common shoulder injuries our chiropractor treats include:
Rotator cuff injury—Chiropractic treatment helps stabilize the five large tendons anchoring your shoulder and promoting its range of motion. Strains, sprains and tears are common injuries for athletes and people who work a lot with their shoulders. Dr. Evans can realign tissues to remove stress and reduce inflammation. He will also show you exercises you can do at home to help with recovery.
Frozen shoulder—Characterized by severe pain and stiffness in the shoulder joint, your shoulder becomes nearly “frozen” in place, making it hard to perform daily activities. Injury, excess inflammation and poor ergonomics can cause frozen shoulder. Fortunately, frozen shoulder responds well to chiropractic care and the other natural pain relief and anti-inflammation treatment options our chiropractor provides.
Pinched Nerves—Sometimes shoulder pain is a consequence of spinal misalignments (subluxations) pinching nerves in the upper back or neck. When the affected nerves control feeling and function in the shoulder, you might have a radiating pain or numbness. Our chiropractor deftly performs spinal adjustments to release pinched nerves for effective pain relief and restored function.
