What Is Shoulder Pain?
Shoulder pain is a condition that involves the inflammation of the connective tissue on the shoulder. The causes include:
- Overuse and repetitive use
- Injuries such as falls
- Frozen Shoulder Syndrome
- Poor posture
- Underlying medical conditions, such as Fibromyalgia
- Nerve Pain
- When accompanied by shortness of breath, shoulder pain may be a symptom of a heart attack.
Effective NE Calgary Shoulder Pain Treatment
Our team at Max Physiotherapy, including our physiotherapists and chiropractors, are experts at assessing your shoulder pain. Once accurately diagnosed, they will recommend the best care plan for you.
At Max Physiotherapy, we use a combination of treatment modalities. In the case of Frozen Shoulder Syndrome, we use OTZ Tension Adjustment and OTZ Muscle Tension Technique. OTZ is a proven, non-surgical method of diagnosing and successfully treating Frozen Shoulder Syndrome.
We also use Active Release to treat the soft tissues of the shoulder and Cold Laser Therapy to treat it on a cellular level. Cold Laser Therapy helps cells to produce more energy, in turn promoting healing. As the light energy is transformed into biochemical energy in the body, the blood supply to damaged cells is increased and the healing process is stimulated. Shock Wave Therapy is another one of the many treatments we use.
Physiotherapy treatment for Shoulder Pain
Physiotherapy is also an effective approach to treatment. Our Physiotherapy team at Max Physiotherapy will work closely with your sports medicine physician or general practitioner to ensure accurate diagnosis and treatment planning occurs.
Can a Chiropractor treat my Shoulder Pain?
Most people don’t realize that chiropractors are fully trained in assessing and treating shoulder pain. There are numerous adjusting and manual therapy techniques that are often required to regain full joint mobility of these structures. Unfortunately, this is often overlooked in many clinical settings, which does not allow a full functional return to the affected extremity. Make sure to let us know if you have any extremity joint issues and we will be happy to consider what one of our Chiropractors can do for you.
How is Shoulder Pain Treated?
Just like any other joint in the body, the extremities have very specific functions and ranges of joint motion. An assessment is made of the injured area, and very specific adjustments and other recommendations are applied to facilitate a full recovery.
Conservative manual therapy, including manipulation and soft tissue therapy, is first-line care for shoulder pain. Our chiropractors and physiotherapists have specialized training to effectively and efficiently do this form of treatment. This, combined with other interdisciplinary care if necessary, will be organized under one roof at Max Physiotherapy to optimize your recovery.
