Shoulder Pain

 Causes and Treatment for Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain is a common issue that our chiropractors at Spine Pain Center in North Charleston, Mount Pleasant, and Surfside Beach offers treatment for. If you're experiencing shoulder pain due to an injury or some other condition, we can help with your recovery.


Common Shoulder Pain Causes

These are the most common sources of shoulder pain that we see in patients at the Spine Pain Center:

Dislocated Shoulder

A dislocated shoulder is an incredibly painful injury that happens when the upper arm bone slips out of the shoulder blade socket. Once the shoulder has been relocated by a medical professional, it may be a long road to full recovery. However, a Spine Pain Center chiropractor can work with you to relieve ongoing shoulder pain, restore proper range of motion, and reduce the likelihood of the injury recurring.

Shoulder Bursae

Bursitis is a condition that happens when the small fluid-filled sac that reduces friction in a joint becomes inflamed and swollen. A shoulder bursa can be relieved by working with a chiropractor, using techniques to reduce the inflammation, and restore the shoulder and upper arm to a proper range of motion.

Frozen Shoulder

Adhesive capsulitis, better known as "frozen shoulder," is a common and painful condition in which the shoulder joint becomes inflamed and painful. While it often goes away on its own, a chiropractor can help speed up the healing process through chiropractic massage and exercises.

Rotator Cuff Injury

Your rotator cuff includes the muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder. A rotator cuff injury is common for people whose work involves repetitive motion of the shoulder, including painters, carpenters, and even baseball pitchers. A chiropractor can help relieve the pain and speed your recovery from a rotator cuff injury, using chiropractic massage techniques, exercise, and recommendations for body mechanics that will help prevent re-injury.


A sprained shoulder is usually the result of stretching or tearing of the shoulder ligaments. A chiropractor can help relieve this pain and ensure a faster recovery through soft tissue massage, application of cold packs, gentle stretching exercise, and compression.


Plenty of rest and treatment from a chiropractor are two ways that help with recovering from tendinitis. This painful inflammation of the shoulder’s tendons is very common among baseball players and swimmers. The injury needs time to heal, and at the Spine Pain Center, we can help speed up your recovery period using techniques such as chiropractic massage, light stretching exercises, and range of motion exercises.
