Shoulder Pain Relief in St. Cloud

woman with upper back painShoulder pain can be debilitating, affecting every aspect of your daily life. That’s why it’s first crucial to understand the root cause of your discomfort. The source of shoulder pain often lies within the intricate network of muscles surrounding this vital joint. Two key areas to examine are the rotator cuff region muscles and the pectoralis muscle located in the front part of the chest.

Ergonomics, repetitive activities, and poor posture can all contribute to discomfort in these areas, making accurate assessment essential.

Evaluating the Neck Region

Did you know that nerves exiting the neck region significantly impact the muscles and areas surrounding the shoulder? At Advantage Chiropractic, we leave no stone unturned when diagnosing your shoulder pain. Our comprehensive evaluations, including X-rays, range of motion testing, and orthopedic assessments, help us identify the underlying cause of your pain and develop a targeted treatment plan.

Taking a Holistic Approach

At our practice, our approach to treatment goes beyond the traditional chiropractic care. We understand that addressing immediate pain is important, but we also recognize the broader impact it can have on your body. That’s why Dr. Mark focuses on optimizing nerve integrity and joint functionality to provide long-term relief.

One of the ways we achieve this is by adjusting the neck region, which helps improve the nerve integrity that supplies the shoulder muscles. But it doesn’t stop there. We also incorporate stretches, exercises, and physical therapy techniques that are tailored to your specific needs. Our combination of treatments aims to get the nerves flowing, while also addressing the joints and the surrounding muscles.

For instance, if you’re someone who spends a lot of time sitting at a computer with poor posture, we can teach you how to stretch the pectoralis muscle and recommend exercises that can help improve your condition. We might also introduce pulley exercises, where you use an overhead pulley to gradually strengthen and mobilize your arm, or even guide you through wall-walking exercises as part of a personalized physical therapy plan.

At our practice, it’s always our priority to empower our patients with knowledge and tools they can use at home to improve their condition.
