Norridge Chiropractor Dr. Cynthia Seaman tells her patients that their shoulder is a very flexible part in your body, but is also very fragile. Your shoulder consists of bones in the area connected by only ligaments and crossed by muscles. There are many reasons why your shoulder would hurt. You may have an irritated nerve in your neck, using your shoulder in a repetitive motion or had an injury or fall. Any of these instances can cause inflammation and stiffness making simple movements painful even when you sleep.
Below are different problems you can have in your shoulder:
1. Misalignment of humeral head
The humeral head is the top of the long bone in your arm leading to your shoulder. This can get dislodged from its normal position. Causes of this include injuries, slip and falls and repetitive motions (i.e. lifting, carrying).
2. Referred pain
Referred pain is when you feel pain in your arm rather than just in the top or front of your shoulder. This might be an indication that your pain is coming from your neck not your shoulder.
3.Rotator cuff problem
The rotator cuff is a set of muscles that connect together the various bones of your shoulder. Any type of injury to those muscles may cause pain with certain movements. Since the muscles are injured, this causes the bones to be pulled out of alignment.
Bursitis is the rarest of all shoulder problems. Inside of your shoulder you have a sac that filled with fluid that separates the bones so that they don’t rub.
Dr. Seaman wouldn’t only focus on your shoulder but on the activities of daily life. Dr. Seaman will provide you with a treatment program to stabilize your shoulder, increase the range of motion and eliminate pain.
