Find out if your shoulder pain could be due to tendonitis.

What is tendonitis, exactly? Perhaps you’ve heard people talk about it but you aren’t entirely sure what this condition is all about. As you shoulder tendonitismay be able to guess from the name, tendonitis is a condition that is characterized by inflammation of the tendons. From the office of our Gaithersburg, Potomac, Clarksburg and Urbana, MD chiropractor, find out the symptoms of shoulder tendonitis and how we might be able to help.

Do you think you may have shoulder tendonitis? If you notice pain, soreness or tenderness in the shoulder, or if you have trouble holding certain arm positions, then you may be experiencing shoulder tendonitis. Of course, there are other medical issues that can cause these symptoms too, so it’s important that you seek a proper diagnosis from our Gaithersburg, Potomac, Clarksburg or Urbana chiropractic doctor.

How is shoulder tendonitis treated?

A lot will depend on the severity of your condition. While your regular doctor may recommend resting and avoiding certain activities that could make your condition worse, they may also recommend medications, icing or physical therapy.

Of course, we can also help get you on the road to recovery. We can show you certain strengthening exercises that can help restore and improve function in the tendons of the shoulder. If you have shoulder tendonitis you may also find that the joints in your neck and back have also become stiff due to inflamed, tight and aggravated tendons in the shoulder that are pulling on these surrounding muscles. Fortunately, spinal manipulation is a great way to improve the alignment of the spine. Spinal manipulation can also remove unnecessary pressure from certain joints and areas of the body while improving blood flow to these regions.

We can also discuss ergonomic options for both your personal and working life that can help prevent the tendons in the shoulder from pinching, which can also lead to inflammation. Fortunately, a technique known as mobilization is a great way to move the muscles and tendons of the shoulder through a passive range of motion. By doing this we can increase blood flow to these areas and promote faster healing.

If you are concerned that you may have shoulder tendonitis, or if you are looking for other ways to treat your condition, then turn to King Chiropractic in Gaithersburg, Potomac, Clarksburg and Urbana, MD.
