Shoulder pain is an extremely common musculoskeletal complaint and one that when present should be addressed with proper evaluation and treatment. The shoulder is a complex joint consisting of muscles, ligaments and tendons which are all required to create proper motion and stability. Shoulder complaints can be either acute/traumatic or chronic in nature. Regardless of the cause it is important to have a thorough consultation, physical examination and often time’s evaluation of diagnostic testing to properly diagnosis and formulate a treatment plan for shoulder injuries.
Some common injuries we diagnose and treat at HealthBridge Chiropractic are:
- Rotator Cuff Syndrome or Tearing
- Impingement Syndrome
- Shoulder Sprain/Strain
- Overuse Injuries such as tendonitis
- Work related and Post Traumatic Shoulder Injury
- Shoulder Injury related to Motor Vehicle Accidents

Common treatment for shoulder injuries consist of chiropractic manipulation, mobilization of the shoulder, stretching and strengthening exercises, the use of therapeutic modalities and the prescription of personalized home exercise programs. In addition, with certain shoulder injuries it may be necessary for orthopedic or specialist evaluation which do understand the importance of at HealthBridge Chiropractic.
In addition, the shoulder is a common area of referred pain from the neck. At HealthBridge Chiropractic we are focused on looking at the whole patient and making sure all areas of the body contributing to an injury are evaluated.
