Acromioclavicular arthritis is usually caused by overload and repeated movements between the shoulder joints, which have lost their stability. The Chiropractor’s job is to get the shoulder back to function correctly.
Pain in the arm - Cervical radiculopathy
Cervical radiculopathy presents pain, tingling, or a sense of weakness in the arms and hands. It is usually caused by compression or traction of one or more nerves originating in the neck. Often, it presents with painin the neck, shoulder, arm, and/or hand, tiredness, and rapid fatigue after a few movements with the arm,tingling, and weakness in the hand’s grip. The most common causes are herniated discs and cervical arthrosis. In both cases, it is a problem due to mechanical dysfunction of the musculoskeletal system andresponds well to chiropractic treatment.
Bursitis is the inﬂammation of a “bag” of ﬂuid, which acts as a cushion in some joints. It often occurs in the shoulder or hip. This inﬂammation frequently responds to physiotherapy treatments which, while decreasingthe pain, do not resolve the cause of the problem. Often, bursitis is the consequence of a dysfunction in jointmechanics, which causes compression or rubbing of the bursa. The Chiropractor intervenes effectively inthis problem.
Adhesive capsulitis or frozen shoulder
Resolving this issue may take some time. For this reason, it is usually diﬃcult to beneﬁt from traditional treatments. It generally has an excellent prognosis in the absence of ruptures or calciﬁcations.
The rotators are the four main muscles of the shoulder. When the cuff gives symptoms, it means imbalances in the functioning of these or other muscles and the skeleton. By correcting these imbalances, we can get ridof the symptoms.
Due to muscle and joint sprains, the scapula no longer moves in sync with the rib cage, collarbone, andhumerus.
Instability - Dislocation
Often caused by shoulder trauma or repeated movements by athletes (such as volleyball players, swimmers,basketball, or rugby players), the instability, if not treated, can cause a shoulder dislocation. Through various muscle tests, the Chiropractor can identify the muscles that need activation and rehabilitation.
Myalgia - muscle aches or pains
Through applied kinesiology, which assesses muscle function non-invasive and painlessly, the Chiropractorcan trace the origin of muscle problems.
The generic term usually used to indicate shoulder pain, periarteritis, can be solved through the chiropracticapproach.
Shoulder conﬂict syndrome has various causes. The Chiropractor can speciﬁcally isolate these causes to determine the health of the shoulder joint, muscles, tendons, and bursae. Once the problem has been identiﬁed, the Chiropractor can advise the patient and start the treatment.
Excessive and/or inappropriate use of a tendon and repetitive motion can create excess friction leading to inﬂammation and irritation. This factor causes joint pain and movement restrictions. In conjunction with physiotherapy, the chiropractic approach allows us to identify and correct this problem.
Golfer's elbow or medial epicondylitis
This pathology is manifested by pain localised on the inside of the elbow and the inside of the forearm. Caused by muscle overload, the chiropractic approach helps release muscle tension and restore appropriatemovement.
Tennis elbow or lateral epicondylitis
This pathology manifests as pain localised outside the elbow and the forearm. The Chiropractor’s approachhelps release muscle tension and restore appropriate movement.
Cubital tunnel syndrome
Cubital tunnel syndrome is a disease caused by compression of the ulnar nerve at the elbow. Symptoms can range from numbness and stinging in the ring and little ﬁngers to severe elbow pain and weakness in the hand and forearm muscles. This problem is generally mechanical and can be solved through the intervention of the Chiropractor.
Carpal tunnel syndrome
This syndrome is a common condition that causes pain, numbness and tingling in hands and ﬁngers. Thisproblem occurs when the median nerve is compressed as it passes through the wrist. The chiropractic adjustment restores the height of the carpal tunnel, reducing the pressure inside until the symptoms areremoved.
Round pronator syndrome
The pronator teres syndrome is a painful pathology caused by compression of the median nerve in the proximal 1/3 of the forearm. The Chiropractor can relieve the patient through the release of the muscles, the restoration of the elbow mechanics, and the other structures involved.
This syndrome is similar to that of the pronator teres. The Chiropractor can relieve the patient through the release of the muscles, the restoration of the elbow mechanics, and the other structures involved.
Guyon's tunnel syndrome
Trigger points are muscle contractures that can cause local or referred pain. Contractures will no longer be an issue thanks to chiropractic treatment, muscle release, and corrective exercises.
