what do I need to know?
Shoulder injuries are high on the list of the most common problems treated by our sports chiropractors at both our Eden Prairie and Eagan clinics. We have overhead specialists on staff at Premier Sports and Spine Center since we work with so many overhead athletes such as baseball and volleyball players. The most important aspect of treating a shoulder injury is accurately diagnosing the cause of the pain. There are many different conditions within the shoulder that can cause pain as well as problems with posture, deconditioning in the mid back, or conditions of the neck that can create symptoms in the shoulder area. At Premier Sports and Spine Center, a sports chiropractor will take the time to fully review your medical history, evaluate your shoulder and surrounding areas, assess your range of motion and do a complex orthopedic and neurologic examination to identify the actual root of the pain and injury.
The most common Shoulder Injuries include:
Our sports chiropractors have an immense amount of experience with shoulder pain and injuries. Our partnerships with MASH Baseball in Eagan and M1 Volleyball in Bloomington exposes us to numerous athletes with shoulder conditions. This experience with athletes who consistently perform over-head movements can be applied to other athletes such as weight lifters, rock climbers, swimmers, cyclists, and football players. Our sports chiropractic techniques are equally well suited if your shoulder pain is from overuse at work, sitting at a desk, being a weekend warrior work or from an unknown cause.
The treatment utilized by the chiropractors at Premier Sports and Spine Center is highly individualized and extends well beyond traditional chiropractic care. Patients suffering from a shoulder injury receive a combination of soft-tissue work, joint mobilization, and rehabilitation exercises designed to shorten healing time and prevent the injury from returning. Treatment can also include modalities such as therapeutic ultrasound, dry needling, and Kinesio tape. Our goal is not only to get you pain-free and back to the activity you love as soon as possible but to keep you performing in a way that reduces the likelihood of a repeat injury.
