The shoulder can suffer from a number of ligament and muscle strains, disclocation, joint inflammation, and fractures.
Whether it’s an annoying ache or a seizing, debilitating pain by assessing the condition and alignment of the body we can find why the body is complaining and help to return the many structures of the spine that can be causing pain (disc, nerves, joints, muscles or even referred from the internal organs) to normalise and so the nervous system will not have to keep those annoying sending distress signals we call pain.
With thorough examination we can identify if there is a need for further investigation or other concerns relating not only to the presenting issue but you in your entirety.
By encouraging the range of movement and better positioning of the shoulder, osteopathic treatment aims to improve muscle tones and circulation to reduce pain and inflamation.
Additionally, we can talk about exercise, stretches and lifestyle adaptations and solutions that can not only keep things going but also prevent other problems in the future.
