Shoulder Pain Treatment

The shoulder is a ball-and-socket joint that’s connected to the body through muscle. So the underlying causes of shoulder pain most frequently have to do with either the joint itself, or the muscles, tendons and ligaments that support the joint. Because of the range of motion required for effective play, football players, baseball and softball players, and swimmers tend to get shoulder pain at some point in their athletic careers. Pierce Chiropractic can help athletes maintain or enhance their range of motion, so they can perform at their best.

What does shoulder pain mean?

Common Causes of Shoulder Pain

There are so many sports that use a ball. Whether it’s being thrown, bumped, hit or caught, our arms are doing work and our shoulders are taking the brunt of it. Sports like baseball, softball, volleyball, football, tennis, and swimming can cause athletes to overexert their shoulders, resulting in shoulder pain.
