Before scheduling your appointment, learn about some causes of shoulder pain below:


Understanding Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain can develop from a variety of factors, such as a rotator cuff injury due to repetitive motions or overuse. Not only that, but you may have also discomfort from whiplash after an auto accident. In addition, if you play sports, you can sustain sprains and strains that can lead to shoulder pain. When you visit us, our chiropractor will determine the root cause of your pain and create a treatment plan that will provide relief.

Common Causes of Shoulder Pain

Should pain can develop from several causes. While some injuries may heal on their own, others can lead to chronic pain, so it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible. Some common causes of shoulder pain include:

Rotator Cuff Injuries

A rotator cuff injury can lead to persistent shoulder pain and limited range of motion. These injuries often occur from overuse or repetitive motions, which can cause inflammation and discomfort in the shoulder joint. Chiropractic care can help alleviate the pain and allow your body to heal naturally. Along with that, we may recommend rehabilitative exercises that strengthen the surrounding muscles and improve mobility.


Whiplash can cause sudden and intense shoulder pain due to the rapid back-and-forth motion of the head and neck. As a result, the strain and stress in the shoulder region can lead to stiffness, soreness, and reduced range of motion. Our chiropractor can address any misalignments, which will reduce inflammation and help your shoulder function properly.

Strains and Sprains

Participating in sports can sometimes lead to shoulder strains and sprains. These injuries may be from sudden impacts, repetitive motions, or improper techniques during physical activities. We will speak with you about your symptoms and provide the necessary treatment that can help you recover so you can return to the sport you love.
