A shoulder impingement can cause shoulder discomfort. When you raise your arm and or cross your chest, impingement means that some soft tissue near the shoulder rubs on a bone. The rotator cuff is a bunch of muscles that connect the bones of the shoulder. If any of the soft tissues rub or gets pinched by any misaligned bones of the shoulder, that causes pain.

What are the most common shoulder injuries?

Shoulder strains happen with over worked or over stretched muscles. Strains range from some minor soreness after a workout to serious muscle tears that need surgery.

Shoulder sprains effect ligaments and the labrum of the shoulder. Even minor sprains never heal completely and can become a source of chronic shoulder pain and instability. But up to a 25% tear can be rehabilitated to minimize lasting disability.

How do you relieve shoulder pain at home?

Rest and ice may be necessary. If you choose to ice, put ice directly on skin, no cloth, for no more than 15 minutes at a time. Less than 15 minutes if you have a circulation problem. If icing provides relief and is well tolerated without skin damage, repeat hourly for up to 3 days.

Heat may feel good on arthritis and sore muscles but the temporary relief costs a spike in inflammation and pain for days.

Early mobilization in the pain free range of motion is recommended. So move it all you can, as soon as you can.

How should I sleep with shoulder pain?

Sleeping on your back reduces the stress as much as possible. You may need to prop up your arm or upper back with pillows to get more comfortable. But side sleeping, even on the good shoulder will stress the neck and shoulders all night long.

What is frozen shoulder?

Your shoulder joint is made up of bones, ligaments, and tendons. Frozen shoulder can happen when the connective tissue around the joint thickens and tightens, making it hard to move your shoulder.

Shoulder and Neck Pain Lasting Relief Secrets Revealed

For almost a year, it felt like I had a knife in my back. It didn’t matter what activity or time, 24/7/365. I’d always shift positions, trying to find some relief. But no amount of physical therapy could touch it and I knew pain management would be toxic and damage my shoulder even worse. For the first time in decades I considered orthopedic surgery, even though the last one left me with permanent nerve damage.

But then, I spent a weekend at my best student’s clinic in Canada. I though over a thousand doctors but he was one of the few that I could trust with a real challenge. He did a whole new exam and evaluation, worked on my neck and shoulder half a dozen times the first day and no relief. I was getting discouraged. Then again on the second day and there was some temporary relief, finally. Then on the third day the spasm broke and after a year of torture, I was pain free again.

Shoulder Pain and Upper Cervical Chiropractic

I had become spoiled and expected relief within a few treatments. But when I experienced chronic, severe shoulder pain for a year straight, it just took more. Twenty treatments over three days. So now I don’t have problem with recommending more than the five visits that most insurances allow. And I feel comfortable with treating chronic and severe pain daily until it breaks. Because sometimes that’s what it takes. But I understand when some people want to “try it and see how it goes” and while I can respect that, I just don’t accept them as patients anymore because that never works.

Still, I remember how skeptical I was with my first chiropractic experience. That is, until it helped me get better from lifelong pain under constant, excellent medical care.

I woke up one morning and couldn’t turn my head, everything from head to shoulder was in painful spasm. And that was the one thing that my medical family cautiously considered a chiropractic issue. I got lucky because the chiropractor had advanced training. No twisting or cracking, thank God.

I started feeling better and faster than I did in the past with medication, not my first episode of head, neck, shoulder pain. But this doctor predicted I would feel better within a few treatments and that it would take much longer to rehabilitate my neck. So it wouldn’t keep happening at the worst time, again and again like it did up until then. I trusted him enough to see if that really meant anything to me.

And long story short, within the first year of treatment, for the first time in my life, I was pain and medication free. I became more active and had fewer injuries because my flexibility, balance and coordination improved dramatically.

Unlike any other doctor, the chiropractor examined and measured my postural Alignment, Balance, and Coordination. And by treating that, instead of just managing pain, all my old chronic injuries started to heal properly.

Chemical Dependency

None of the surgeries or medications, none of the physical or psychological therapy ever gave me the lasting relief that I found with someone my medical family didn’t even consider a real doctor.

But it took me a whole year to detox from years of daily medication. Some of the damage, from those medications, may never completely heal. But now I work and play as hard as I want to every day, and sleep straight through every night. And haven’t even taken an aspirin in almost 40 years.

Most Doctors Agree

Recently the American College of Physicians, a distinguished group of over one hundred thousand medical doctors and healthcare providers, published formal recommendations to avoid pain management and surgery whenever possible. Instead, they suggest non-invasive therapies if the patient responds to those treatments.

And the world-famous Cleveland Clinic released an extensive two-year study tracking thousands of patients who got better Quality of Life results with functional medicine than just conventional medical care alone.

Functional Medicine

Functional medicine provides a systematic integrative approach towards restoring function instead of just managing symptoms. This drug free, non-surgical system of healthcare uses diet, nutritional supplements, exercise and stress management to relieve pain, relax stress, and restore function.

Most doctors know that appropriate diet and exercise is the best long-term medicine for any condition. But they’re expected to write a prescription in a few minutes. Even though any search engine could do that in less than a second. And neither of those options are good medicine.

How I Got Rid of My Shoulder Pain

After I was properly examined and treated for Alignment, Balance, and Coordination. With specific, no twist or crack, chiropractic to reduce the physical stress, throwing my posture out of balance and coordination... My neck started moving and improving better than previous injuries treated by bracing, PT, and medication. Most of the lifelong pain in my joints, muscles and nerves went away too. And once I saw how out of balance I was I could understand how that postural misalignment was a constant strain on everything else. So now, as long as I stick to my daily stretches and anti-inflammatory diet, I have little if any pain anywhere and feel fully rested on 6-7 hours of sleep a night.

Not Intended As Medical Advice

Even with several new injuries that forced me to find more amazing drug free, non-invasive therapies... Not only do I save time and money by proactively staying healthy, but I don’t miss out on irreplaceable experiences with friends and family. Like I used to when I relied on emergency medical care and constant medication to manage my lack of health.

Our quantified functional exam costs thousands of dollars in most specialists’ practices. More than just a few vitals and asking where it hurts, I touch my patients.
