Shoulder Pain/Rotator Cuff

Pain and stiffness in the shoulder joint is a common complaint in our Jackson, MI chiropractic office.  Shoulder pain is evaluated and treated every day in our office.  The shoulder is capable of many movements.  The shoulder is a complex ball and socket joint.  What makes the shoulder unique is that its support, stability, and integrity depend on muscles rather than bones or ligaments.  

The group of muscles known as the rotator cuff are the most commonly involved when shoulder complaints present to our office.  Minor tears in any of these muscles can cause significant pain and restriction in the shoulder.  

As chiropractors, we use a combination of chiropractic adjustment, soft tissue massage, transfriction massage, cryotherapy, ischemic compress techniques (trigger point therapy or acupressure).  At Schonhard Chiropractic, we have the experience and skill to diagnose and effectively treat shoulder conditions.  Discover the Jackson Husband and Wife Chiropractic Team of Schonhard Chiropractic.
