Shoulder Pain Q & A

Why does shoulder pain develop?

The shoulder is a complex joint that can easily be damaged. You will most likely experience shoulder pain if  any of the ligaments, cartilage, tendons, or bursae surrounding your shoulder joint are damaged from injury or illness. Some of the most common causes of shoulder pain include:

  • Tears in cartilage
  • Tendon rupture
  • Swelling of the tendons
  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Arthritis
  • Injuries to the rotator cuff
  • Nerve impingement
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Dislocations
  • Bursitis
  • Broken bones

The cause of your shoulder pain will determine which treatments you need to recover. Some cases of shoulder pain stem from a combination of issues.Talk with the providers at Solutions Integrated Medicine about any of your recent activity that you think might have caused your shoulder pain. With over 30 years of experience, they can offer you a healing hand.

How does a chiropractor treat shoulder pain?

If you come to Solutions Integrated Medicine with shoulder pain, the provider will begin by evaluating your shoulder and reviewing your medical history. They may also ask questions about your lifestyle, and the symptoms you’ve been experiencing. Once he’s identified the different issues causing your shoulder pain, he’ll be able to develop a customized treatment plan.

What treatments help with shoulder pain?

The exact treatment we recommend for your shoulder pain will greatly depend on the cause of your pain. However, your treatment plan may include:

Chiropractic care

Traditional chiropractic care, such as joint manipulation, may help some patients with knee pain.

Regenerative therapy

Therapies designed to promote the growth of new, healthy tissue in your knee can relieve your pain and improve the overall function of the joint.


If the cause of your knee pain is an injury, you may benefit from rehab. During rehab, you’ll perform specific, guided exercises designed to improve the strength and stability of your knee and speed up the healing process.

Each of these treatment options offers different advantages. In some cases, the provider may recommend more than one treatment to give you the best possible results.

Are these treatment options safe?

Yes. All of the treatment options available from Solutions Integrated Medicine are non-invasive or minimally-invasive. The risk of side effects and complications is low for most patients. However, the provider will explain any risks in detail with you before you begin any treatment process.
