What is shoulder pain?

With a team of professional chiropractors in Delray Beach, Dr. Steven Silverman is experienced in shoulder and upper back pain relief. As the most mobile joint in the body, shoulders are subject to a wide range of injuries and conditions that hinder one’s ability to lift and extend arms, carry, wave and other motions and tasks. Conditions such as tendon inflammation, tendon tear, osteoarthritis, and a dislocation are some of the various ways that discomfort can appear. Our Delray Beach clients offer suffer from shoulder pain, which is often caused by neck and upper back tightness, spinal misalignment, arthritis, abnormal patterns of movement, or direct injuries.

While some of these conditions may indicate localized swelling in upper joints, more point to the spine as the probable source of shoulder and upper back pain. If the vertebrae around the neck and upper back are compressed or injured, the nerves that go directly to the shoulder will also be affected. Even a minor spinal misalignment can interrupt communication between the nerves and the shoulder and what may appear as upper body soreness can be referred pain from the spinal column. Though it can be easy not to pay mind to some discomfort, injuries that are left without shoulder pain treatment can lead to life-long debilitating issues, especially if they originate near the spine. Signs of an injury are occasionally very subtle, but can develop into major issues over time.

Dr. Silverman can provide chiropractic treatment for shoulder and upper back pain relief in Delray Beach as a gentle, non-invasive alternative to medications and surgeries. Dr. Silverman is trained to deal with issues in the spine and the shoulder complex that contribute to this condition using shoulder pain treatment.
