With many years of experience treating shoulders, we achieve excellent results in relieving pain and getting you back to the activities that are important to you, whether that is your job, housework, gardening, looking after your family or your favourite sport.
Shoulder conditions treated by chiropractors include rotator cuff injuries, sprains and tendinopathies, bicipital tendonitis, bursitis, impingement syndrome and adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder). Impingement syndrome is characterised by worsening pain when you lift your arm away from your body.
Pain in the shoulder may originate from the neck, from the upper back or from the spinal and rib joints.
Typical pain patterns
Causes of shoulder pain
There are multiple causes of shoulder pain, including subacromial impingement, tendinopathies, frozen shoulder, trapped nerves, myofascial pain, thoracic outlet syndrome, strains, sprains, tears and postural issues. Emotional stress can also cause or exacerbate shoulder pain, particularly tension, across your shoulders and up into your neck.
