Looking for shoulder pain relief? The shoulder is one of the most flexible joints of the body. The shoulder is composed of tissues and tendons that give you the strength and stability to function with ease. When there is even the slightest damage, you’ll notice sharp or dull shoulder pain.
Acute Shoulder Injuries
Injuries are the leading cause of shoulder pain. They could stem from weeks of repetitive movement, come after a fall on your outstretched arm, or from a random twist of the shoulder. Depending on the severity of the accident, it can take months to years of recovery without massage therapy.
You might be asking, “what are acute injuries?” They are a type of injury that occurs suddenly. It is often associated with a traumatic event – from aggressive sports on the field to falling off the treadmill. It is often associated with sharp pain, muscle tears, fractures, or further damages to the affected area.
Those with a shoulder injury often complain of discomfort when they reach for something; or severe pain when lifting their arm above their head. That’s why so many people turn to a chiropractic for immediate assistance. At Advanced Spine & Sports, the treatment plan we offer will cater to your needs.
We also treat shoulder pain associated with medical conditions like:
- Rotator cuff tears
- Rotator cuff sprains
- Frozen shoulder
Massage Therapy is The Answer
Most people gravitate toward home remedies. You might want to spend a day or two icing the wound and compressing the injury. But until it is assessed by a medical professional, it will be much harder to see any progression. Massage therapy is a safe way to penetrate damaged tissues. We want to increase your range of motion by increasing the blood flow through the injury site. Deep tissue and frozen shoulder massages are especially beneficial, as they can also repair surrounding chronic pain of the neck and back.
