Shoulder Pain FAQs

People searching for shoulder pain relief are often left wondering what they can do without having invasive surgery or taking addictive prescription medications. Seeing a chiropractor can provide shoulder pain relief if you have had a shoulder injury, such as damage to the rotator cuff or tendons. If the shoulder pain is also going up the neck, the chiropractor can help relieve neck pain. 


Suppose you are suffering from shoulder pain and have questions about how to find relief. In that case, the chiropractors at Wellness Plus Chiropractic in Carrollton, TX, are dedicated to helping patients live pain-free lives. Below are some of the frequently asked questions our office receives about shoulder pain: 

What are some common causes of shoulder pain treated by a chiropractor? 

The two leading causes of shoulder pain are acute shoulder injury and chronic pain. Chronic pain is often caused by damage or pressure on the shoulder's nerves, cartilage, muscles, tendons, and other structures. Examples of shoulder pain causes can include dislocation, rotator cuff injury, frozen shoulder, bursitis, and arthritis. 

What does the term "rotator cuff injury" mean? 

A rotator cuff injury occurs when the set of four muscles attached by tendons to the bones of the arm to the shoulder become damaged or strained. This can cause stiffness and pain in the shoulder area. This injury can also cause neck pain, depending upon the severity of the rotator cuff injury. 

What is bursitis? 

Bursitis is the inflammation of the cushioning sacs in the rotator cuff, also known as the bursae. When these sacs become inflamed, they press against tendons and muscles, which can restrict movement and cause chronic pain. 

What is a frozen shoulder? 

A frozen shoulder occurs after the shoulder has been in a sling or placed in a stationary position for an extended period. This condition can be painful, and a chiropractor can help relieve it and release the shoulder from its frozen position.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received."

  • "I have benefitted tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced over all. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine: golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible."
