Find out how osteopathic medicine could ease your shoulder problems.
Since the shoulder contains the most hypermobile joint in the human body, this also increases the risk for shoulder problems. While our Ft. Lauderdale, FL, osteopathic physician Dr. Darin Bush most often sees people in their 40s, 50s and 60s dealing with shoulder pain, the fact of the matter is that anyone can develop shoulder problems regardless of age.
Common causes of shoulder pain include,
- Strains and sprains
- Soft tissue injuries
- AC joint injury
- “Frozen shoulder”
- Rotator cuff impingement
- Rotator cuff injuries
It’s amazing just how quickly shoulder pain can set in and disrupt your normal routine; fortunately, osteopathy is a great way to treat many types of painful shoulder injuries to promote faster healing and alleviate pain and swelling without having to rely on pain medications.
Treating Your Shoulder Pain
Every patient that walks through our doors has a unique set of health concerns and circumstances, so why should they get the same treatment as everyone else? Here at Mobility Spine and Sports, Dr. Bush and his team provide a personalized approach to care. We first perform a comprehensive physical assessment to determine the cause of your shoulder pain.
An osteopath is most known for providing a variety of gentle manipulative techniques to help alleviate tension in the muscles, tendons and soft tissue in and around the shoulder. Since many conditions may start in a specific area but spread to other areas, you may also be experiencing back or neck pain as a result of your shoulder injury or condition. We can also provide full-body manipulation therapy to help realign areas of the body, alleviate tension and trigger points, and help improve how the body functions as a whole.
Furthermore, regular osteopathic manipulation treatments can also stimulate the body’s natural healing response and improve blood flow, which will bring vital nutrients to the injured shoulder to speed up the healing process. We will also pinpoint any activities or habits that could be triggering your pain and create a comprehensive plan that may include physical therapy and rehabilitation, as well as simple exercises to perform on your own between osteopathic sessions.
If you are dealing with shoulder problems and are looking for a safe, effective way to improve how your body functions as a whole then you may want to consider osteopathic treatment. To schedule a consultation with us, call Mobility Spine and Sports at (954) 414-7080.
