Stop Living with Shoulder Pain
Shoulder Rehabilitation in Thousand Oaks, CA: We use our arms and shoulders every day. It is very easy, due to daily use, poor posture or injury, to have your shoulders and surrounding areas become injured, inflamed or have torn tissues. All of the tendons, muscles or ligaments around the joint can stretch and tear causing pain. Pain further up the body, such as the neck, can also be due to issues in the shoulder joint. In that entire area, trigger points in the muscle can happen, which feels like a painful build up or a “knot” that can be tricky to treat at home.
Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) is a condition that involves stiffness and pain in your shoulder joint. Signs and symptoms typically begin gradually and can worsen over time. If you’re recovering from a medical condition or procedure that prevents you from moving your arm, such as a stroke or a mastectomy, you may be more prone to developing frozen shoulder.
Complete Performance Center provides many natural treatments to stop shoulder pain: The shoulder joint can shift out of alignment causing the muscles and ligaments to pull differently. This leads to muscle spasms, inflammation and pain that may not go away on its own. Dr. Alvarez will provide gentle adjustments to the shoulder to distract the joint or shift it forward or backward, depending on symptoms. He will also adjust the spine as well to bring balance to the body and improve posture. By having the neck and upper back adjusted, it will also help relieve shoulder discomfort.
Dr. Alvarez and the team at CPC also provide other treatments that effectively help reduce shoulder pain. Patients can receive electrotherapy, ultrasound therapy and bodywork massage therapy. All of these therapies work with the muscles and tissues to reduce inflammation to allow the body to stay aligned. It also helps release stubborn knots from tight or damaged muscles and tissues.
