Bolster Your Shoulder Stability Naturally With Chiropractic Care

woman arm raisedShoulder stability is crucial for maintaining well-being, as the shoulder has more motion than any other part of the body. This complex joint consists of three bones, various ligaments, tendons, and muscles, all working together to ensure smooth and rhythmic motion. In this blog, we’ll discuss common causes of shoulder instability, signs to watch for, and how chiropractic care can help restore and maintain shoulder health.

Common Causes of Shoulder Instability

“One of the primary reasons people experience shoulder instability is excessive time in a forward hunched posture,” said Dr. Luker. This position not only strains the shoulders, but also contributes to mid-back and neck pain. Occupations that require repetitive, forward-bent positions, from desk jobs to construction work, are examples where shoulder functionality can be compromised.

To address these issues, it is essential to focus on ergonomic changes within your work environment to maintain good shoulder mobility and posture.

Signs to Watch for

Some common signs of shoulder instability include tightness in the chest, popping or clicking sounds, and decreased range of motion. People often experience a decreased ability to reach overhead (e.g. getting something out of a high cupboard).

Pain is often the last symptom to appear. Strain from daily activities or repetitive motions can cause overuse injuries in the shoulder joint over time.

How Chiropractic May Help

The effectiveness of chiropractic treatment for shoulder instability depends on several factors, such as the duration and cause of the issue. Chiropractic care aims to restore proper shoulder movement within eight to 16 visits. However, individual cases may vary.

“We also provide patients with strengthening and mobility exercises to continue using after their treatment, ensuring long-term shoulder health,” said Dr. Luker. Ergonomic support at work and practical lifestyle changes are also recommended to promote overall well-being.

By understanding the importance of shoulder stability and seeking professional help when needed, you can work towards maintaining healthy shoulders and enjoying a pain-free, active lifestyle.
