Pain is as natural to life as eating, sleeping, and breathing, and while no one likes being in pain, people who are unable to experience it live significantly shorter lives. This is because pain informs us that something is wrong, it tells us to stop what we are doing, and alerts us when it is time to seek help. This is no exception with chronic pain. Oftentimes chronic pain is the result of a problem that has gone untreated for way too long, or a bad habit that goes unchecked. One of the most common occurrences of chronic pain is in the form of tight shoulders. Many people suffer from shoulder pain, and most are clear as to why. If you have tried everything to alleviate the discomfort, it’s time to contact Total Wellness Solutions and try chiropractic care for tight shoulders. 

 

Why Do I Have Tight Shoulders

Tight shoulders can result from several different factors, and the approach you use to treat the discomfort can depend on the cause of the problem. When you work with the chiropractic team at Total Wellness Solutions, we will ask as many questions as necessary to understand why you are in pain. Once we have an idea of the cause, we can begin drafting the treatment plan. Some of the most common causes of tight shoulders can be attributed to: 

  • Stress 
  • Tension 
  • Injury 
  • Overuse 
  • Poor posture 
  • Sitting for long periods 
  • Poor sleeping positions

Is It Really My Shoulders 

If you suffer from chronic discomfort, then you might think it would be easy to identify the origin of pain. However, the body is made up of complicated systems and pathways that criss-cross over one another and can make it difficult to decipher the underlying issue. This can be very problematic because pinpointing the exact source of the problem is necessary for creating an effective treatment plan. For example, our neck and shoulders are so interconnected that sometimes we can misinterpret pain signals from one as originating from the other. This can often result in trying treatments that target the wrong area, which can cause people to become frustrated when there is seemingly no progress. This is why it is important to work with a professional that can identify and accurately pinpoint the exact origin of the problem. Below are some cues to look for when attempting to decipher the correct cause of your discomfort. 

  • How to identify shoulder pain.
    • Pain on the outside of the underarm
    • Pain is dull and aching 
    • Pain flares up when you reach overhead 
  • How to identify neck pain. 
    • Stabbing, burning, or tingling
