The pain may either be confined to the shoulder or radiate to the arm, neck and back. While painkillers provide immediate relief, the best treatment option is chiropractic adjustments for shoulder pain.

It is necessary to diagnose the cause of shoulder pain. A shoulder exam determines whether the pain is primary or secondary.

Primary pain arises because of some shoulder problems. It can radiate to the neck and back and lead to severe consequences. On the other hand, secondary pain is shoulder pain triggered by a problem somewhere else in the body.

Imaging tests like X-ray, CT Scan, and MRI provide for further diagnostic evaluation.


Overextension and abduction of the shoulder can cause misalignment, resulting in inflammation, pain, and distress.  Chiropractic adjustments help restore the shoulders to their normal position. They are performed manually or with the help of specific instruments.

A pinched nerve also results in pain in the shoulder. Manipulating and mobilizing techniques fix it by releasing the pressure on the compressed nerve and alleviating pain.


Postural syndrome is a painful condition where malpositioning and constant pressure on a particular part of the body result in inflammation, pain, and muscle spasm.

Chiropractic adjustments consisting of gently massaging and mobilizing techniques relieve muscle spasms, release nerve pressure, and treat the pain.
