How Chiropractic Care Can Help with Shoulder Instability

chiropractic care for shoulder instability

People suffering from shoulder instability can experience a wide range of symptoms, including pain, weakness, decreased range of motion, and difficulty with everyday activities. Fortunately, chiropractic care can help to address these issues and provide much-needed relief. Let’s take a closer look at how chiropractors can help those dealing with shoulder instability.

What is Shoulder Instability?

Shoulder instability is a condition characterized by the inability to keep the humeral head (upper arm bone) in its proper position within the glenoid cavity (shoulder socket). This can lead to a dislocation or subluxation of the shoulder joint, which can cause pain and reduce the range of motion. Shoulder instability often results from an injury such as overuse or trauma (such as a fall), but it can also be caused by weakened shoulder ligaments due to age or degenerative diseases.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help Shoulder Instability?

Chiropractic doctors are trained to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal problems like shoulder instability. They use manual adjustments that target specific areas of the body in order to improve joint function and reduce pain. Studies have found that chiropractic care helps to reduce inflammation, improve the range of motion, and increase strength in patients with shoulder instability. In addition, a chiropractor may recommend exercises for strengthening and stabilizing the shoulder joint in order to prevent future dislocations or subluxations from occurring.

Additionally, chiropractors may also perform massage therapy or other soft tissue therapies in order to reduce muscle tension around the shoulders. This can help to improve the range of motion and decrease pain levels for those suffering from shoulder instability. Furthermore, many chiropractors also prescribe lifestyle changes such as posture correction exercises or ergonomic modifications in order to reduce strain on the shoulders when performing everyday tasks.

Chiropractic care is an effective method for treating shoulder instability and reducing associated pain levels. Through manual adjustments and targeted exercises designed specifically for promoting joint stability and strength, chiropractors are able to provide relief for those suffering from this condition. In addition to physical treatments, they may also suggest lifestyle modifications such as posture correction exercises or ergonomic modifications which will further reduce strain on the shoulders when performing daily activities. If you are experiencing any symptoms related to shoulder instability it’s important that you seek professional medical attention right away so that you can get back on your feet quickly.
