Treating Your Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain can interfere with your life in various ways. If you’re dealing with constant shoulder pain, it can be hard to function properly or feel comfortable doing your daily tasks. It’s important to talk to your osteopath about treating your shoulder pain so that you can start feeling your best again.

Treating Your Shoulder Pain With Osteopathic Medicine

Osteopathic medicine looks at your body as a whole instead of just focusing on symptoms. If you’re dealing with shoulder pain, your osteopath will ask you questions about your daily routine to find out what may have caused your shoulder pain. From there, they can create the best treatment plan for you and help you make adjustments to avoid pain in the future.

Your osteopath can help reduce inflammation and pressure in your shoulder and help you strengthen the shoulder to avoid future injury. Your osteopath may recommend starting with manual therapy. This is when your osteopath manipulates your shoulder in different ways to help stretch and strengthen the joint. They’ll use their hands or a small tool to move the shoulder in different ways.

On top of manual manipulation, your osteopath can recommend exercises that you can do at home to stretch and strengthen your muscles around the shoulder. This can help loosen up your joints and help relieve some of the pain that you’re experiencing. When you strengthen the muscles around it, you’re helping give your muscle the extra support it needs to withstand the weight of your arm.

In addition to this, you can also ice the joint to help reduce inflammation and irritation that might occur.
