Due to the fact that your shoulders rely on your spine in your neck and upper back in order to function, if any area of your neck or back is out of alignment, it will inevitably lead to issues with the shoulders as well. However, with proper chiropractic care, we have the ability to correct any pain or discomfort in the event that you do begin to experience tightness in the shoulders or shoulder muscles.
Nerve supply to the shoulders stems from the neck and upper back so as a result, anything that irritates the nerves while exiting those areas can in turn create the same symptoms in the shoulder, arm or hand. This nerve irritation can originate from a number of different conditions, including disc bulges, joint degeneration or vertebral misalignments. It is highly suggested that a chiropractic adjustment be considered if you are suffering from any of the aforementioned conditions and have been experiencing shoulder pain or tightness.
