ProActive Chiropractic provides expert chiropractic adjustments for shoulder pain in San Francisco CA.
- Rotator Cuff Injury
- Impingement Syndrome
Considered as the most mobile joint in the human body, the head of the upper arm maneuvers around a shallow bony socket with the assistance of the rotator cuff muscles. These muscles, including the surrounding joint capsule, not only function to move our upper limbs, but also firmly secure the upper arm into the joint space.
Many times we experience patients have a difficult time pinpointing exactly where their pain is coming from. Due to the overlapping layers of pain sensitive structures, any irregular movement pattern can trigger pain signals in the general area.
That is why our doctors perform detailed movement screenings and execute specific orthopedic tests to find the source of the problem.
Our doctors restore proper shoulder alignment with chiropractic adjustments and correct dysfunctional movement patterns with additional tools and exercises in the office and as prescribed homework.
The tools used in our office consist of Graston (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization), Myofascial Release Technique and Low Level Laser Therapy. One or a combination of these tools may be used to address the soft tissue structures involved in a patient’s pain.
When performed at home during the care plan, band exercises are highly effective in strengthening the forward and rear facing shoulder muscles which disperse work loads on the joint, increasing flexibility and reducing pain.
Our overall goal is to get you pain free as soon as possible. We don’t plan or schedule any visits to our office unless absolutely necessary.
