To treat your shoulder injuries, our Barrie, ON chiropractors may employ a number of different therapies and treatments.
Shoulder injuries and pain are commonplace, sometimes resulting from car accidents, sports injuries, job pain, or overuse. The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body, making it highly susceptible to injury. Many will ignore the pain or try to treat it with ice, sports cream, a heating pad, or rest. These treatments will provide limited relief, alleviating the symptoms briefly, but never really addressing the pain’s origin.
At Optimum Wellness, we know how debilitating shoulder injuries can be and realize how chronic shoulder pain can really affect your quality of life. Our chiropractors may begin by assessing your overall health, nutrition, previous injuries, and family health history. This will help us better understand how to offer you a total treatment that will not just lessen the pain, but also increase your overall health and wellness.
To treat your shoulder injuries, our chiropractors may employ a number of different therapies and treatments. They may begin by applying varying amounts of pressure to different trigger points in and near your shoulder. This will allow us to determine if there is one specific nerve, joint or muscle surrounding the shoulder that is causing the pain. Finding the root of the problem allows us to create a better treatment plan for you. Rehab is an important part of this process, as well, so you can avoid shoulder injuries in the future. We will help you develop exercise routines that will strengthen the shoulder.
