Shoulders consist of the collar bone, shoulder blade, and upper arm bone. Together they comprise the most movable joints in your body. However, because the ball of your upper arm is bigger than your shoulder socket, it is vulnerable to injury and problems.
Shoulder conditions can be excruciating and may affect your capacity to do everyday tasks. In most cases, they severely limit your ability to participate in sports and other active movements. Even sitting upright can sometimes cause severe discomfort.
If you injure muscles, tendons, bones, or ligaments in your shoulder or have chronic issues, you may suffer some of the following problems:
You can sometimes treat minor shoulder conditions with ice or heat, pain medication, elevation, and rest. But if they are more severe or persist, contact us. We love to help people with their shoulder pain.
It may be harder to spot a fracture in your shoulder. Still, if you notice any significant physical change, if you are suffering a lot of pain or swelling or have a chronic condition, you want to call us to schedule a consultation.
AZ Spine Disc & Sport can do a complete history, physical examination, and any imaging tests to determine the root of your problem. Many shoulder conditions can be treated non-surgically, and we offer physiotherapy, chiropractic care, acupuncture, and more.
Do not continue to live in pain and risk permanent damage to your shoulder, spine, and other parts of your body. Let us help reduce or eliminate your suffering and return you to your optimal condition. We can also assist with long-term wellness and strengthening so that you continue to stay healthy and well and do not reinjure your shoulders!
