Shoulder pain is very common and affects almost half of the U.S. population at some point in their lives. Although the causes may be different, many of the treatment options are similar.
Like any other issue, the sooner that you receive the proper care, the quicker the pain will go away and the sooner you will be able to get back to your everyday routine. In many situations, if you leave the problem untreated for too long, it may worsen and become a chronic problem.
Even if you are not sure what caused your pain, there are lots of treatment plans to get you on the road to recovery. After a thorough evaluation, our trusted and experienced staff will be able to run a few tests to help determine the root of the issue. Once this has been determined, it will help us better understand how to help you. We will discuss your options so that you can get back to being yourself.
Though many people do not like to go to the doctor right away for every little pain, there are definite signs that let you know it’s time to call your chiropractor. If you have pain that persists longer than a few days, the inability to carry objects or use an arm, shoulder pain that is worse while resting, the inability to raise your arm, swelling around the arm or joint, or even signs of an infection such as fever, redness, or swelling, you should give us a call to schedule a consultation.
If you are experiencing any of these, do not hesitate to contact us at (360) 728-0315. We will work with you to determine what is causing this pain so that you can get back to being yourself.
