Shoulder Pain Q & A

Physical therapists press to the patient shoulder check for pain.

There could be numerous reasons why you can be suffering from shoulder pain. Some of the most common reasons include: 

  • Injury from physical activity 
  • Injury sustained from an accident or fall 
  • Sports injury 
  • An auto accident 
  • Overuse and repetitive use of your shoulder
  • Arthritis

Shoulder injuries are injuries that involve the soft tissues of the body – the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue that holds them together as well as the bones that make up the shoulder.

Additionally, the brachial plexus in the vicinity of your shoulder could be the issue of your pain and discomfort. The brachial plexus is a plexus of nerves that feed every part of your shoulder, arm, elbow, wrist and hand. If this brachial plexus is injured, it can cause nerve symptoms such as immense pain, numbness, weakness of the muscles of the areas the nerve innervates, and tingling sensations. This is the type of shoulder pain that needs immediate care and takes the longest to heal.

At Genesis Integrative Medicine, we offer a variety of treatments to help patients find relief from shoulder pain.

Chiropractic treatment is a non-invasive approach that focuses on realigning the spine and restoring proper function to the body. Our skilled chiropractors use manual adjustments, stretches, and exercises to alleviate shoulder pain and improve overall mobility.

Physical therapy is another non-invasive treatment option for shoulder pain. Our experienced physical therapists use a range of techniques, including exercises, stretches, and manual therapy, to help patients regain strength and flexibility in the affected area.

Shockwave treatment uses high-energy sound waves to stimulate healing in the shoulder joint. This therapy can reduce pain and inflammation and promote the growth of healthy tissue.

PRP therapy is an innovative treatment option that uses a patient's own platelets to promote healing and reduce inflammation. This therapy involves taking a small amount of the patient's blood, processing it to concentrate the platelets, and injecting the resulting solution into the shoulder joint.

Cold laser treatment is a non-invasive therapy that uses low-level laser energy to stimulate healing in the affected area. This therapy can reduce inflammation and relieve pain, offering a safe and effective treatment option for patients dealing with shoulder pain. Our experienced medical professionals will work with you to determine the best course of treatment for your individual needs, helping you find relief from shoulder pain and get back to enjoying your life.
