Shoulder Pain Q & A
by Tim Brennan, DC

What are the most common causes of shoulder pain?

Shoulder pain is most often the result of a musculoskeletal injury or stress caused by repetitive overuse. Certain occupations and sports are common causes of shoulder pain. Pain can originate in the joint itself or from any of the many surrounding muscles, ligaments, or tendons around the shoulder. Some of the most common shoulder ailments treated at Brennan Chiropractic are:

  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Shoulder subluxation
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Impingement syndrome

When should I seek chiropractic treatment for shoulder pain?

Serious shoulder pain generally worsens without treatment and therefore should be treated as soon as possible. Signs that chiropractic treatment should be sought include:

  • Pain persists more than a few days
  • Pain is recurring
  • Shoulder is unstable; making it difficult to carry objects or use your arm
  • Shoulder pain occurs while at rest
  • There is significant swelling or bruising around the shoulder joint or arm

What are the advantages of chiropractic care for shoulder pain?

Dr. Brennan uses safe, non-invasive shoulder adjusting techniques in combination with soft tissue massage and exercise to focus on addressing the underlying source of shoulder pain, rather than simply masking symptoms the way medication and injections can. Addressing the underlying cause can, not only effectively alleviates pain, but also improves function and stability which helps prevent it from reoccurring.*


What is MLS Laser Therapy and how does it alleviate shoulder pain?

This advanced, game-changing technology utilizes dual wavelengths of infrared light energy that penetrate the skin deeply into the affected tissue, muscles, and nerves. The energy stimulates circulation, lymphatic drainage and a metabolic reaction at the cellular level. The overall benefit is a reduction of swelling, inflammation and pain and the activation of soft tissue repair. MLS Laser Therapy is safe, non-invasive, drug-free, and can effectively alleviate shoulder pain without any side effects or downtime.*
