Shoulder pain is a very common disease. This can have several causes that can be diagnosed and treated by a chiropractor. All arm movements are dependent on a normal movement in the back, neck, shoulder blade, collarbone and shoulders. If the muscle system does not work, this will give irritation that in the long term can cause pain in the neck, back, shoulders and arms.
The common denominator of the most common pains is acute damage or overloading. Shoulder-position and support muscle plays a particularly important role at all arm movements.
Unilateral posture often causes the arm pain with round or forward curved shoulders. With time it may easily occur with the pain and wear and tear of the tendons and joints.
This is something that most of us have experienced. If muscle pain occurs for a long time, it will create so-called trigger points in the muscles. The chiropractor is an expert at finding these things and treats them. A distinction is made active and latent trigger points. Active can cause constant pain from muscle while latent causes pain only when pressure, activity or stress.
