Shoulder Pain Relief
For all-natural shoulder pain relief, we offer treatments that heal your body both efficiently and effectively. We use injectables containing platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments that enhance the healing process your body already uses to help heal injured muscle, bone, cartilage, and other tissues in your shoulder.
PRP treatments target the bodies natural healing properties. A small portion of your blood is drawn. This blood sample then goes through a process isolating platelets from the other components of the blood.
This plasma is rich in properties which help accelerate the growth of tissue. Since platelets in your blood stimulate healing throughout your body, increasing the concentration of platelets at the site of a shoulder injury can accelerate the restoration process.
Pinched Nerve in Shoulder
A pinched nerve in the shoulder is the result of another body part irritating or pressing on a nerve that travels from your head, neck, and spine. A pinched nerve can happen from a spinal misalignment, muscle tightness, arthritis, and shoulder injuries (e.g., auto accident, sports, repetitive motion, falls).
The stress from a pinched nerve can make carrying objects a challenge, cause pain when raising your arms, or lead to chronic shoulder pain. Whether pain comes and goes, or it is persistent, the issue needs medical attention. Our doctors can heal nerve damage with our treatments, but we also offer traditional treatments to correct misalignments and inflammation.
Shoulder Joint Pain Treatment
Chiropractic care is a hands-on treatment that restores or gradually improves the function of your shoulder joint by manipulating your body structure. Out of place elements of the skeletal structure can severely impact the motion and use of your shoulder. We use simple, safe, non-invasive chiropractic techniques to correct your spinal alignment, enabling your shoulder to recover from nerve pain, muscular tension, bone discomfort, and more.
Laser therapy is another non-surgical solution that involves exposing damaged tissue to low levels of infrared light. The light energy penetrates your skin and cells, signaling them to allow to sufficient flow of blood for healing nutrients and cells to arrive on the scene.
Your shoulder pain may be the result of very tight balls of muscle, called trigger points. A trigger point injections target these knots with a sarapin, a plant extract. Sarapin causes your muscles to relax, heal, and allow blood and other fluids to enter the area.
