Shoulder pain has a way of creating limitations that prohibit you from doing many of the things that you love. Conventional medicine often turns to shoulder surgery or pain medication as a solution to shoulder injuries or degenerative conditions, but these treatments carry certain risks that many people want to avoid.
Our treatments can help you experience the long-term shoulder pain relief you’re looking for without resorting to invasive surgery or potentially dangerous pain medication.

Treatments for a Painful Shoulder
Shoulder injuries and conditions that cause ongoing pain can be relieved when the underlying cause of the pain is addressed and resolved.
The problem with masking the symptoms with pain medication is that the real reason your shoulder is hurting isn’t addressed, so any relief you feel is only temporary.
As soon as the medication wears off, you have to take another dose, leading to a dangerous cycle with no end in sight.
And if you opt for shoulder surgery, you’re looking at an invasive procedure that includes a lot of potential risks like infection, blood clouds, long recovery times, and possibly even more pain if you don’t follow your treatment plan closely.
Our treatments like chiropractic adjustments, laser therapy, physical therapy, massage therapy, and acupuncture are safe and effective treatment options for shoulder pain that don’t include surgery or medication. For example, chiropractic adjustments help to realign your vertebrae and relieve pressure that may be impinging your shoulder joint and causing you pain.
Treatments like physical therapy and massage therapy help to relieve tense muscles, stretch and strengthen injured shoulder tissue and increase the blood flow to your damaged shoulder. Laser therapy is effective in removing scar tissue and reducing inflammation that may be causing you pain. Acupuncture helps to stimulate your central nervous system and facilitate the healing process.
