The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body and thus is very prone to injury. The joint consists of the humerus, clavicle and scapula being held together by a series of muscles, ligaments and tendons that make up the "rotator cuff". The most important thing when treating a shoulder injury is to have an accurate diagnosis of the problem. With so many structures involved in proper shoulder mechanics it is very important to ensure that you are treating the actual source of the problem. In addition, many times pain that presents as shoulder pain may actually be coming from a misalignment of the vertebrae in the neck. The doctors at SpineCare are expertly trained to determine exactly where the problem is coming from. Once the problem is identified they will begin to work on realigning the spine and the shoulder joint and repairing the soft tissue damage that has occurred.
One of the biggest problems with shoulder injuries occurs if the injury is not promptly addressed. Scar tissue forms in the joint and starts to restrict the range of motion and before you realize it you are left with frozen shoulder.
