Shoulder Pain Q & A
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
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.
Most shoulder injuries are musculoskeletal in origin, which is why it is essential to have a chiropractic professional treat your condition. At Genesis Integrative Medicine we use drugless, pain-relieving methods of care for shoulder injuries, to insure your recovery will be quick and complete.
