The shoulders help us lift and perform many tasks. When they are suffering from pain or stiffness, it can immediately affect mobility and later on lead to bigger, more serious issues. To identify the cause of your shoulder pain, meet with our chiropractor, Dr. David Baggaley.
Shoulder Pain in Spanish Fork
At your appointment, our chiropractor will take a look at the underlying cause of your symptoms. Common causes of shoulder pain are
- Muscle stiffness and pressure in the back and neck
- Misaligned vertebrae
- Car accidents
- Overuse or strained movement
- Sports injuries
While the shoulder joint itself can swell and cause discomfort, often the problem extends towards the spine. Compression in this area can irritate the nerves that extend into the arms and shoulders.
Symptoms of Shoulder Injury
Depending on the cause, the results of the injury may appear immediately or develop over time. Left without treatment, these symptoms can quickly worsen and develop into more serious conditions. It is important to pay attention and note if any of the following occur:
- Problems raising or lifting your arms
- Pain localized in the joint of the shoulder
- Difficulty lifting or carrying objects without pain
- Off-and-on pain that appears frequently
- Continuous pain in the shoulders that stays for over a week
- Bruising or swelling
- Clicking noises as the joint moves
