About Shoulder pain 

Chiropractors have been known to treat issues of the back and spine, including back pain and neck pain. However, chiropractic care can also be extremely beneficial for problems stemming from the shoulders and the rest of the upper extremities.

Most commonly we are able to deduce two common reasons for shoulder pain that is purely stemming from a shoulder problem: the rotator cuff or the shoulder joint itself. Rotator cuff problems are historically more common than joint problems, where tendinous issues is the most common rotator cuff problem.

More specifically, here are common diagnoses related to both categories of shoulder pain:

Rotator cuff related problems

Bone / joint / capsule related problems

Full tear or partial tear

AC or SC joint separation

Small tear or tendinopathy

Bursitis / capsulitis / frozen shoulder

Impingement syndrome

Labral tear


Fracture / dislocation

However, a common indirect cause of shoulder pain we see stems from problems at the neck. Some of these neck conditions include:

  • check
    Herniated disc
  • check
    Nerve impingement
  • check
  • check
    Thoracic outlet syndrome
