Why the Shoulder and Clavicle Become Injured
This part of the body is likely to become injured because of its many parts. Additionally, the clavicle is quite thin, which means it can become broken or injured more easily than other areas of the body. Shoulders have many complex parts for movement, which is why there are so many things that can go wrong.
A variety of issues can cause shoulder and clavicle pain. They include:
- stress fractures, often caused by increased weight placed on the clavicle
- bruising, often the result of an accident
- osteomyelitis, a type of bone infection
- joint separation and dislocation
- poor sitting or sleeping posture
- osteoarthritis, caused by the cartilage in the shoulder wearing down
If you experience the symptoms of a shoulder injury, you need to make an appointment with a professional immediately. Failure to treat these issues can cause them to worsen.
Treatment for Shoulder and Clavicle Pain
Chiropractors use non-invasive treatment options to relieve shoulder pain. These techniques rely on your body's ability to heal itself when it has the resources available to do so. Your chiropractor will work with your body to create the best circumstances for healing.
Physical therapy is highly effective for treating shoulder pain. In therapy, you may learn corrective exercises and stretches that help reduce pain and improve your shoulder's range of motion. Ultimately, this treatment often prevents further injury.
In some cases, massage therapy is an important part of a treatment plan. Additionally, treatment may include active release therapy, which focuses on scar tissue that is causing tension and pain.
Each treatment plan is different. Your plan is customized based on your injury and your needs.
