Shoulder Pain FAQs

Shoulder pain is no fun to live with, but people around the world do it every day. If you’re tired of dealing with shoulder pain, our team at NuView Health Medical in Midtown NYC is dedicated to providing the healing touch you need – starting with answers to your questions.


Why is my shoulder in so much pain?

One of the main causes of shoulder pain is an overuse injury. Such an injury is usually due to repetitive movements that cause tears in the soft tissues. Other potential causes can be fractures, dislocations, stiff joints, inflammation, herniated discs, whiplash, and similar conditions. Sometimes, pain in the shoulder is due to an issue in the back or shoulder.

What can a chiropractor do for shoulder pain?

Adjustments to the back, neck, and shoulder are effective for treating the root cause of shoulder pain. Massage therapy and acupuncture can also be used to address pain, tension, and inflammation, as well as promote healing in damaged areas. Corrective exercises are essential in not only relieving pain but helping rebuild weakened and damaged areas. Our team will develop the most effective treatment plan for your pain, which may include changes you can make to your habits and daily life.

When should I see a chiropractor for treatment?

It’s never a bad time to see a chiropractor for shoulder pain. At a minimum, though, you should schedule an appointment at any point when your shoulder pain is affecting your daily life. Many people can’t sleep well with this pain, hold their arms up, brush their hair, lift their groceries, or even hug their loved ones. If this is the case for you, it’s time to see a chiropractor.

How long will it take for my shoulder to stop hurting?

It depends on the cause of the pain. Muscle tension can typically go away in a few days if you use heat and ice therapy, stretch your shoulder, and rest. However, other causes of pain can take a bit longer and require chiropractic care. You can often begin to feel relief after your first visit, but full relief can take several visits.
