The shoulder complex is the most mobile joint in the body. As a result, it is subject to a wide range of injuries and conditions. Due to that, your shoulder pain may develop over time or come on immediately.

Causes of Shoulder Pain

Since the shoulder is a joint we use continually throughout the day every day, any injury should be treated early to prevent additional damage. The list of causes of shoulder pain is long, but some of the most common include:

Some symptoms of a shoulder problem are more pronounced than others and should be evaluated immediately such as

  • Pain lasting more than a week
  • Pain that comes and goes frequently
  • Difficulty raising your arm above your head
  • Trouble or pain carrying objects
  • Pain that becomes more pronounced at night
  • Obvious signs of injury like bruising or swelling
  • Unusual snapping or clicking sensation or sound in the joint during movement

The neck and upper back are where the muscles and structures that control your shoulder movement are located. Spinal misalignments (subluxations) can be the initial source of shoulder pain. Left untreated, additional damage to the shoulder can develop. Our chiropractors are trained to identify referred pain that could be the source of your shoulder problem.



Treatment for Shoulder Pain

The best treatment for your shoulder pain is determined by the cause of the problem. That is why an accurate diagnosis is essential. MDR Advanced Medical Associates is fully equipped and trained in the various techniques for diagnosing the cause of shoulder pain.

Our Boynton Beach chiropractors begin with the clinical information provided from your health history and continue assessment with advanced imaging techniques and orthopedic procedures to determine the exact cause of your shoulder pain. Chiropractic care has been shown to be effective for most shoulder issues. The correct diagnosis will then be used to develop a chiropractic treatment plan tailored specifically to your condition.

Whether the pain originates from the spine or is caused by damage to the shoulder joint, chiropractic care can provide a non-invasive and effective treatment option. If your shoulder pain requires correction of spinal misalignments or adjustments to the shoulder complex, our doctors at MDR Advanced Medical Associates are trained and have the experience necessary to provide chiropractic treatments to help ensure a fast recovery.

Dr. Abe was quick in assisting me with my neck and shoulder pain! I had very little movement of my head going into the office but Dr. Abe assured me that I would be taken care of. He not only adjusted me but taught me ways to alleviate my pain through at-home stretching and better sleeping positions. Three days later and my pain is gone! Thank you Dr. Abe and thank you MDR!! I will be back!

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Abe. This was the first time I felt absolute comfort at a chiropractor and will 100% be back. I felt comfortable and felt that Dr. Abe was treating me like a member of his family. I really appreciate Dr. Abe and MDR Advanced Medical Associates. Dr. Abe thoroughly explained to me my options and helped me set follow up appointments the fit into my daily packed schedule. Thank you !

I've been coming here for over a year now and the service is exceptional, Dr Abe has been a huge help in my recovery and also always have a great conversation with him. If you're not coming here you're going to the wrong place.

I decided to visit this group after a pinched nerve/muscle spasms in my neck/arm were not getting better. Great location, good hours, if you are in pain, they do anything they can to try & see you and not make you wait a week.Dr Mark & Dr Abe went thru my x-rays and came up with a game plan & discussed with me.I mainly see Abe for manipulations, he is very skilled at what he does. I'm glad I took the chiropractic route. Had me up & running pretty fast. Amazing that I felt that good without medicines.Jessica & Deasy are fun to deal with. Nice, friendly, & they keep things moving! It all starts and ends at the front desk.Chris. What can I say. I guess it isn't really isn't his fault that he gets to inflict pain on me from time to time, but, he is also great to work with 🤣🤣. He gets to demonstrate the "at home" things to do, never the fun part but when done regularly, they may help you from coming back as much.Worth checking out. They are all good people.❤
