Chiropractic Care for Shoulder Pain Relief In San Diego, CA and Surrounding Areas

Shoulder Chiropractor Poway CA

Your shoulder joint is a hard-working joint with the widest range of movement in your body. The reasons behind shoulder pain can be complicated; it’s connected by muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves to the chest, upper back, and upper arm. You use it every day for so many things, that when you have a shoulder injury, it stops you from sleeping, working out, carrying groceries, and everything else. Chiropractic care is an effective, natural therapy for shoulder pain, so contact Dr. Palmes, the shoulder pain chiropractor in Poway, Rancho PenasquitosScripps RanchMira MesaSorrento ValleyMiramar Ranch NorthSabre Springs, and San Diego, families trust for drug-free pain relief today

What Causes Shoulder Pain?

Because the shoulder is a complex joint, it’s important to have our chiropractor evaluate your injury or pain, as well as surrounding tissues. Dr. Palmes will discuss any circumstances surrounding your pain, such as workout or sports injuries, car accident injuries, work injury, overuse injury, and poor posture. After a complete diagnosis, chiropractic care and trigger point therapy, as well as therapeutic stretches and exercises, can help you get the shoulder pain relief you need. The following three shoulder pain causes are probably the most common ones we see in our patients across Mira Mesa, Rancho Penasquitos, Poway, Rancho Bernardo, and Scripps Ranch:


Pinched Nerve

Spinal misalignments (called subluxations) in the neck or upper back can pinch any number of nerves that serve the shoulder. This can cause sharp pain or numbness across the shoulder area. Whether from an injury or poor posture, chiropractic care resolves the misalignments that pinch nerves to restore healthy shoulder function and relieve pain naturally.

Frozen shoulder

Inflammation in the shoulder joint that causes pain and stiffness that “freezes” movement can also come from injury or poor posture. Frozen shoulder does respond well to chiropractic care and trigger point therapy, which helps resolve tight, painful knots of tissue.

Rotator cuff injury

Our chiropractor can realign out-of joint tissues of a rotator cuff injury and help stabilize the tendons, ligaments and muscles. This can help reduce inflammation.
