Treating Shoulder Injuries with a Chiropractor

There are several types of shoulder injury that can cause pain or distress. There are also various remedies that can be taken to alleviate or improve the pain. Painkillers notorious as the most obvious, but depending on the severity of the injury, this may not be enough.

Chiropractic treatment is often used to treat shoulder pain. As one of the leading clinics in West Yorkshire, below, Morley Chiropractic Clinic have listed a few injuries, and the treatment you can use to reduce or remove the pain.


Symptoms of tendonitis are often similar to other ailments. Once the injury is confirmed as tendonitis, a chiropractor would ease the inflammation using reduction techniques such as bracing, R.I.C.E. (Rest, Ice, Compress, Elevate) and electrical muscle stimulation. Once the tendon has loosened and become less inflamed, the chiropractor can then begin massage, physical therapy, joint manipulation and other strengthening exercises.

Dislocated Shoulder

Shoulder dislocations are common for athletes or for those who have had a fall. Active exercises as well as passive treatments can be used to treat the recovery from a dislocated shoulder. A chiropractor would encourage using active exercises such as rotations, ice, and potentially a sling.

General Sprains and Strains

Strains can occur from over exercise, whiplash, and lifting heavy objects. In extreme cases, these can cause severe pain and discomfort; to the point where painkillers no longer alleviate the agony. Chiropractic treatment for sprains and strains can not only reduce the pain in the short term, but also strengthen the affected muscle tissue going forward.

If you are experiencing any of the above in your shoulders or are experiencing muscle and joint discomfort elsewhere in your body, feel free to consult a member of our team at Morley Chiropractors.
