There are many reasons that people experience shoulder pain. Often the pain is caused by problems with posture. It can also be the result of an overuse injury. The shoulder joints can also be affected by arthritis. Regardless of where the pain is coming from, if you are experiencing it, you want it to stop. At West LA Medical, our integrated health professionals have been providing Los Angeles residents with shoulder pain therapy for many years.
Relieving Shoulder Pain
If a shoulder is simply sore once in a while, it may be tempting to just take an over-the-counter medication. However, if the pain keeps returning you may want to seek out a holistic care option that can help you identify the cause of the pain and treat it appropriately through an integrated health approach. This is our goal at West LA Medical.
Identifying the Root Cause of Your Pain
When treating pain, why is as important of a question as to where. Maybe you spent too long at the tennis court. Maybe calcium deposits are building up in your rotary cuff tendons. Perhaps you've been bedridden and haven't been moving your shoulder enough, causing a frozen shoulder. Maybe you consistently have poor posture at your desk at work. Or you may just be experiencing one of many side effects of getting older. Rarely do any of these reasons mean you need to resign to chronic pain.
If there is an injury to the joint or a tear in the rotary cuff, or some other sprain or strain, a certain amount of rest will likely be needed to heal that injury. There also may be inflammation in the rotary cuff, which can inhibit the joint’s range of motion. Reaching above your head may be more difficult. There may be nerves that are affected due to injury. At West LA Medical, we have various options at our disposable as well as state-of-the-art diagnostic tools such as the 3D Spine simulator that will allow us to identify and address the root cause of your shoulder pain.
