Chiropractic Treatment of Shoulder Pain & Dysfunction


Shoulder pain and dysfunction is a common chief complaint prompting a patient to seek out chiropractic care.  According to the Job Analysis of Chiropractors 2000, upper extremity pain and injury account for 8.6% of the chief complaints among chiropractic patients.  Moreover, after low back pain, shoulder pain is the second most common cause of occupational injury claims.  These statistics are not at all surprising when one takes an in depth look at the shoulder joint.  The shoulder is inherently one of the most unstable joints on the body.  

The shoulder is prone to a vast number of different pathologies: 

-adhesive capsulitis

-arthritides (osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, polymyalgia rheumatica etc.) 

-inflammatory conditions

-impingement sydromes
