The most common therapies used for shoulder pain include chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue therapy, exercise rehabilitation, and lifestyle modifications. Spinal adjustments focus on bringing the spine and joints into alignment and thereby relieving pain and pressure, reducing inflammation and improving range of motion. Soft tissue therapies can include massage, trigger point therapy, and myofascial release, all of which reduce muscle tension and increase circulation. Strengthening exercises and stretches are an integral part of the chiropractic approach to shoulder pain. Exercise rehabilitation for shoulder pain bolsters the muscles surrounding the shoulder joint and increases flexibility while simultaneously reducing the risk of future injury and pain. Dr. Llaird Likens also provides lifestyle advice ranging from nutrition or home ergonomics to help with prevention of shoulder pain.
