Shoulder Pain

If you have shoulder pain from a sports injury, an auto accident, or a condition, the discomfort can make simple tasks challenging and affect your quality of life. At The Russell Center for Chiropractic & Sports Medicine in Beverly, MA, we offer shoulder pain treatments like acupuncture and massage therapy. Along with that, we utilize chiropractic techniques that provide pain relief, help you heal naturally, and prevent the discomfort from becoming chronic.


Understanding Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain can be debilitating and hinder you from participating in hobbies you love. The shoulder includes muscles, tendons, ligaments, connective soft tissues, and nerves that connect with the upper arm bone and collar bone. Not only that, but the rotator cuff also has connective tissues and allows the arm to move in different directions and angles.

Since the shoulder joint is such an elaborate structure, it is more susceptible to injuries than other body parts. In order to take care of your shoulder and maintain its ability to function properly, it is important to understand the symptoms and causes of shoulder pain. Be sure to notify our chiropractor of any shoulder pain symptoms, no matter how insignificant they may seem in the moment.
