Any one of a number of conditions can be involved where shoulder pain is the problem. Some shoulder pain may not even be coming from the shoulder joint itself. For example, it may actually be referred pain from the neck. A clear diagnosis is therefore vital. Our Hertford chiropractor and acupuncture specialist will carefully assess your shoulder complaint and provide you with a specific diagnosis. This means you receive the right treatment that gets to the root of the problem, right at the beginning of your care.
Many patients come to Advance Chiropractic & Acupuncture Clinic in Hertford complaining of shoulder pain. It’s not surprising really. The shoulder joint is a shallow, somewhat unstable ball-and-socket joint. Only a few key muscles and other tissues keep it stable while we move it. It’s very easy to injure the joint.
As a result of our extensive training in chiropractic and many years of experience, we know that shoulder area pain is not always due to a shoulder joint problem. Our first task then is to establish if your pain is indeed coming from the shoulder, or is in fact referred pain from another area. This might be for example pain referred from a problem in the neck, elbow or even an internal organ.
