SHOULDER PAIN

HOLISTIC THERAPY CAN HELP YOU GET THE SHOULDER PAIN RELIEF YOU DESERVE

GET RID OF SHOULDER PAIN ONCE AND FOR ALL!

You may be suffering shoulder pain for various causes, and the intensity can range from the transient pain of a torn muscle to the painful “bone-on-bone” friction of arthritis.

Shoulder pain can manifest itself in various ways, such as when you reach for the top shelf to put dishes away or when you struggle to find a comfortable sleeping position. It might appear as a result of an injury, causing you to experience a dull agonizing ache or even as if your shoulder is trapped.

Whatever sort of shoulder discomfort you are suffering, NORTHSTAR INTEGRATED HEALTH & PHYSICAL MEDICINE CENTER is committed to providing you with the most acceptable options to get you well and back in the game as soon as possible.

WHAT ROLE WILL HOLISTIC THERAPY HAVE IN TREATING MY SHOULDER PAIN?

NORTHSTAR INTEGRATED HEALTH & PHYSICAL MEDICINE CENTER treatments are natural, simple, and relaxing. Most importantly, we use excellent methods of relieving shoulder discomfort without the need for hazardous medicines or invasive surgery.

Our holistic therapists at NORTHSTAR INTEGRATED HEALTH & PHYSICAL MEDICINE CENTER have treated several patients suffering from shoulder pains, with patients seeing progress and relief after only a few brief sessions – and sometimes fewer!

Our practitioners are movement specialists trained to identify the source of your discomfort using a range of diagnostic approaches. During your physical assessment, your therapist will move your neck and shoulder, examine your posture and range of motion as well as look for structural damage using special holistic tests. Once completed, your therapist will prescribe a plan for you that will focus on immediate pain relief and symptom modification by using one or more specific movements, manual techniques, therapeutic modalities, and advice tailored to your particular case. Following that, recovery of function is critical, and your therapist will broaden your treatment plan to include strengthening of your shoulder and surrounding muscle groups, as well as progressive (re-)exposure to your activity, and finally back to normal.

No program is complete until you learn specific tactics and procedures for increasing your strength and preventing future shoulder issues.

SHOULDER PAIN CAN OCCUR DUE TO A VARIETY OF DISORDERS.

Because of the complexities of the shoulder joint, there are several possibilities for pain-causing conditions. The following are the most prevalent reasons for shoulder pain:

TEAR IN THE ROTATOR CUFF

The rotator cuff comprises four muscles, tendons, and soft tissues surrounding the shoulder joint. The rotator cuff has to guide the movement of the shoulder joint properly. The rotator cuff can be partly or torn due to injury, misuse, bad posture, or even aging. Depending on the degree and circumstances, surgery may be required, although effective holistic therapy treatments may frequently help relieve pain and restore rotator cuff strength to compensate for the partial tear. If surgery is needed, holistic therapy is an essential component of pre-and post-surgical rehabilitation for a full recovery.

SHOULDER FREEZE

Frozen shoulder, also well-known as “adhesive capsulitis,” can occur if your arm has been in a cast or sling for a lengthy period due to an accident or if you have been bedridden for an extended period. It causes a painful loss of shoulder mobility and tightness of the shoulder joint, significantly limiting motion. There are specific ethnicities that are more prone, and women have more cases than males. Frozen shoulder is common in women between the ages of 40 and 60.

ARTHRITIS

Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are two types of arthritis that affect the shoulder. Osteoarthritis occurs due to “wear and tear,” as you’ve already known, usually as a result of age or heavy misuse. Rheumatoid arthritis occurs due to the immune system attacking the shoulder joint’s membranes, causing pain and inflammation.

 THE NECK 

Believe it or not, issues in your neck might cause up to 50% of your shoulder pain.

ARE YOU BE SUFFERING FROM A ROTATOR CUFF TEAR?

The rotator cuff consists of the muscles and tendons surrounding your shoulder joint. The rotator cuff can get ripped or strained due to repetitive overhead motions such as those done in sports such as tennis or vocations like carpentry. These tears might be unpleasant at times.

If you have a rotator cuff injury or “torn shoulder,” you will often experience a dull ache deep in your shoulder, arm weakness, trouble reaching behind your backs, and disrupted sleep due to discomfort. Our natural and non-invasive treatments at NORTHSTAR INTEGRATED HEALTH & PHYSICAL MEDICINE CENTER can help ease your shoulder pain and allow you to heal from your rotator cuff damage fully.

While severe rotator cuff problems may require surgery, there are numerous circumstances where holistic therapy can work just as well (if not better).

According to recent research, treating non-traumatic rotator cuff injuries, physiotherapy alone gives outcomes comparable to arthroscopic surgery and open surgical repair.” So, in general, non-conservative treatments like physiotherapy, chiropractic, and massage therapy should be regarded as the primary treatment for this illness.

We will carry out several physical assessments to discover the nature of your rotator cuff pain at NORTHSTAR MEDICAL CENTER, and we will build a specific treatment plan based on the demands of your diagnosis and your physical objectives.

WHAT CAUSED MY SHOULDER PAIN?

Your shoulder is capable of a wide range of physical accomplishments. It also has the most incredible range of motion of any joint in your body. The upper arm bone (humerus) fits exactly in the corresponding space within the shoulder blade as a “ball-and-socket” joint (scapula). However, with its complexities comes a greater risk of injury, resulting in shoulder pain and discomfort. The set of muscles that attaches them is known as the rotator cuff.

The sort of pain you experience in your shoulder depends on what is causing it. Impingement pain, for example, often occurs when you lift your arm and begins at a specific position in the range of motion.

Pain from a deteriorating shoulder might cause chronic discomfort whenever you move your arm in specific directions. Acute injuries can cause sharp, excruciating aches that make it hard to move your shoulder at all.
