Common Questions About Shoulder Pain Relief

Written By Gulf Coast Injury Center on May 21, 2018

The chiropractor, medical doctor, massage and physical therapists at Gulf Coast Injury Center in Tampa, want to keep you free from shoulder pain while you work and play. Our locations in Tampa, Brandon/Riverview & Holiday make it easy for you to find us when you need immediate shoulder pain relief. We understand that shoulder pain can appear quickly or gradually and want to answer your pain relief questions.

Why does my shoulder hurt?

Shoulder pain can be the result of overuse, heavy lifting, muscle tears, car accident or sports injuries or may occur without a known origin as is sometimes the case for a frozen shoulder. Our doctors evaluate your shoulder and may identify your shoulder pain as one of the following:

  • Frozen shoulder
  • Muscle strains
  • Joint sprains
  • Dislocated shoulder
  • Inflamed bursae
  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Tendinitis

What are my options for shoulder pain relief?

Our chiropractor provides gentle shoulder adjustments to position your joint into a healthy alignment for healing. This allows your body to repair muscle damages and reduce inflammation so healing occurs quickly. When your shoulder is aligned, you also regain pain-free range of motion. Once your shoulder is aligned, our other services such as massage therapy to ease muscle tension and scar tissue, along with physical therapy exercises to restore your shoulder's strength are added to your care plan in our Tampa, Riverview/Brandon & Holiday offices.
