Relieve Shoulder Pain with these Treatment Options

Jun 23, 2023 -- Posted by : Dr.Harcourt

The most common area that most shoulder pain sufferers point to is the top of the shoulder—between the neck and upper arm/shoulder joint. This may indicate dysfunction in the neck, since it can refer pain to this area.  If raising the arm above the horizontal plane (90°) hurts, it could be an impingement caused by a swollen bursa (“bursitis”), tendon (“tendinitis”), and/or a tear of the rim of the socket (“glenoid labrum tear”).

The link below reflects the top 10 Exercises from Healthline to relieve shoulder pain and tightness.

When it comes to treatment, there is evidence to suggest conservative approaches, like exercises, are just as effective as surgical approaches. One review found the following:

• Subacromial impingement syndrome: Exercise is as effective as surgery at one, two-, four-, and five-year follow-ups (at a fraction of the cost of surgery).

• Rotator cuff partial thickness tears (less than 75%): Exercise is as effective as surgery (at a fraction of the cost).

• Atraumatic full thickness rotator cuff tears: Exercise significantly reduces the need for surgery (75%).

• Subacromial impingement syndrome: Exercise significantly reduces the need for surgery (up to 80%).

So if you suffer from shoulder pain, don’t jump to surgery as your first treatment option. Conservative treatments offered by doctors of chiropractic—such as manual therapies, exercise training, and the use of modalities—can help improve motion in the shoulder and the surrounding structures at a much lower cost and without the risks that come with more invasive procedures. Also, regardless of the treatment option you choose, keep in mind that it can take three, six, nine, or even twelve months to reach a satisfying end-point in treatment for these types of injuries.

So, if you are experiencing shoulder pain and you type in pain management near me or chiropractor near me, you will find that Coast Chiropractic Centers with Dr. Timothy Harcourt, me, comes up. 

You may wonder, “What is wrong with my shoulder and who in my area can help”? 

Do I have a muscle strain in the shoulder muscles? If it is a strained muscle, why is it getting worse instead of better? Perhaps, you have been taking chemicals and the pain persists as well? Do I have tendonitis?  Is it a rotator cuff tear or rotator cup problem? Pickle ball, golf, and tennis are common sports to cause shoulder pain. Some near you try shoulder workouts with the shoulder muscles to no avail. Persistent or worsening pain intensity and/or frequency necessitates a visit to see a professional around you before it becomes a frozen shoulder.
