Shoulder problems that go unchecked can lead to lifelong, debilitating issues. In order to properly treat the shoulder joint and achieve long-term relief, it is important to identify the cause of shoulder pain. Shoulder pain can occur from falls, automobile accidents, sports injuries, repetitive movements, or a variety of other conditions. People can turn to Richter Family Chiropractic for effective, non-invasive shoulder injury treatment in Corona CA.

Shoulder Pain Treatment in Corona CA

The causes of shoulder pain are seemingly endless, but let's go over some of the more common causes of pain in the shoulder. Shoulder pain may be the result of conditions, such as:

  • Neck and upper back tightness
  • Spinal misalignment
  • Arthritis
  • Abnormal patterns of movement
  • Athletic injuries and automobile accidents

While a few of the items on this list may indicate localized swelling in the shoulder joint, more of them point to the spine as the probable source of pain. The nerves that control the shoulder originate in the spine. If the vertebrae around the neck and upper back are compressed or injured, the nerves that go to the shoulder will be irritated and cause pain. Even a minor spinal misalignment can interrupt communication between the nerves and the shoulder and a cascade of problems can begin. So, what appears as shoulder pain may actually be referred pain from the spinal column.

Symptoms of Shoulder Injury

Due to the wide range of causative factors, shoulder pain and abnormal motion in the joint may develop gradually or come on suddenly. Symptoms of a shoulder injury are occasionally very subtle, but even these can develop into major issues. Since the shoulder joint is used in the vast majority of activities that we engage in daily, all symptoms involving the shoulder should be monitored carefully and treated promptly to avoid the progression of the problem. Symptoms indicating the need for an immediate evaluation of the shoulder complex include:

  • Shoulder pain that lasts for more than a week
  • Shoulder pain that goes away and then returns frequently
  • Difficulty raising your arm above your head
  • Trouble or pain when carrying objects
  • Pain in the shoulder joint that becomes more pronounced in the evening
  • Any visual signs of damage to the joint such as bruising or swelling
  • Unusual snapping or clicking sensations in the joint during movement
