Shoulder Pain Treated Without Surgery or Medication
The shoulder joint can shift out of alignment causing the muscles and ligaments to pull differently. This leads to muscle spasms, inflammation, and pain that may not go away on its own. Dr. Anthony Criscuolo will provide gentle adjustments to the shoulder to distract the joint or shift it forward or backward, depending on symptoms. He will also adjust the spine to bring balance to the body and improve posture. By having the neck and upper back adjusted, it will also help relieve shoulder discomfort.
Dr. Criscuolo also provides other treatments that effectively help reduce shoulder pain. All of our therapies work with the muscles and tissues to reduce inflammation and allow the body to stay aligned. These treatments will also help release stubborn knots from tight or damaged muscles and tissues.
Treatment for Elbow Pain
We ask a lot of our elbows. We often make it a habit of leaning on them or having them endure continuous repetitive motion. But the elbow is like any other joint, an interconnected web of muscle, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and bones. When one of these structures is compromised, it can have cascading side effects that limit or impair your function and mobility. The most sources of elbow pain are tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow, affecting the exterior and interior tendon respectively. Other sources of pain may include:
- Seized muscles
- Muscle sprains
- Pinched Nerve
- Bruising or trauma
If you have sustained an elbow injury, it’s important to seek professional help to ensure that the injury heals fully and correctly. Allowing injuries to heal on their own can lead to complications down the road, or in extreme cases, permanent loss of function.
