Shoulder, Neck and Back Pain

WHAT CAUSES SHOULDER PAIN?

Is your shoulder causing you discomfort and pain?

Where exactly is the pain?

Shoulder pain can be caused by subluxations in your spine. So if you are having shoulder pain, you need to get to the root cause of the problem. You may relieve yourself of shoulder pain by using a cold or warm compress, take pain killers or just ignore it but the real reason for the pain has to be addressed so you don’t have recurring issues.

If you have shoulder pain, or someone you know has it, pay careful attention to what I’m about to share with you.

Shoulder pain can be “helped” without the use of drugs or surgery… a lot of the time. At Divine Spine Yorba Linda our spine doctors will evaluate your condition by first taking an x-ray. The x-ray will tell us (yes the doctor and you) what is happening, where the issues are and it will determine if our computerized spine therapy is an option to get you the right treatment to address the root cause of the problem.

Ever wonder what is really causing your shoulder (a ball and socket joint with a large range of movement) to hurt?

Such a “mobile” joint tends to be more susceptible to injury.

Shoulder pain can stem from one or more of the following causes:

  • Strains from overexertion
  • Tendonitis from overuse
  • Shoulder joint instability
  • Dislocation
  • Collar or upper arm bone fractures
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Pinched nerves (also called radiculopathy)
What happens after our doctors review your x-rays?
1. You come in for a full consult and education on what is causing you the pain
2. Our doctor will explain why you are in pain and provide insights on what treatment needs to be done, remember we don’t twist or pop your spine, nor do we do anything invasive or surgical.
3. If we cannot help you, our doctor will refer you to another specialist – in some cases this is possible and our integrity is to ensure you get the best care.
4. If you qualify for our computerized treatment, we will schedule you in, and provide you with a comprehensive care plan.
Shoulder pain can prevent you from going to work, carrying your baby or simply playing your favorite sport. Talk to us about your situation.
