Shoulder Pain


Shoulder pain can have a serious impact on your quality of life, affecting your ability to comfortably sit at a desk, sleep through the night, and enjoy an active lifestyle. If shoulder pain is impacting your quality of life, chiropractic care is a conservative treatment technique that may be able to help. This non-surgical, drug-free approach addresses the root cause for your neck pain. Chiropractic adjustments restore correct alignment to the cervical spine for long-term pain relief.

Drug-Free Neck Pain & Shoulder Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Neck and Shoulder Pain Treatment Available in Edmonds.The cervical spine contains seven small vertebrae beginning at the base of the skull. Accident injuries are the most common cause for neck pain in individuals, although extended sitting, repetitive movements and normal aging can also contribute to the wear and tear that causes neck pain.

Poor posture, obesity and a weak core can all affect spinal balance. When spinal balance is off, the head may lean forward, straining the cervical spine and triggering shoulder pain and neck pain.

What To Expect During Your First Consultation

During your initial diagnostic appointment, our chiropractor will perform diagnostic exams to locate the source of your pain. We will also gather information about when the pain started, what you have done thus far for your shoulder or neck pain, and if the pain radiates or travels to other parts of your body.

An x-ray can show whether narrowed disc space, fractures, bone spurs or arthritis may be triggering this neck pain. A CT scan or MRI can help our team identify the precise location of bulging discs or herniated discs. Once we have diagnosed the precise cause for your pain, our chiropractor will create a custom treatment program to bring correct alignment back to the cervical spine and relieve your neck pain.

A neck adjustment is a precise procedure our chiropractor performs to the neck joints. This adjustment will help improve the spine’s mobility and restore mobility. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, we may also recommend corrective exercises and massage therapy.

Our goal is to restore a full range of mobility to the spine, alleviate nerve compression and increase the strength of nearby muscles. If poor posture is a root cause for your neck pain, we will discuss corrective exercises that can improve posture, strengthen the core, and reduce the risk for future neck pain.

Chiropractic care is an effective approach to treating neck and shoulder pain because we focus on the root cause for this pain. This is different from medication that may temporarily “cover up” pain symptoms, but leave patients vulnerable to recurring pain once the medication wears off. Additionally, chiropractic care is non-surgical. There is no need for an invasive procedure, downtime for recovery, or the risk that surgery could leave you in more pain than when you started.

To learn more about how chiropractic care can help relieve your neck pain, schedule a diagnostic exam with our team today.
