Dr Brad Ivanchuk here. I am a Burlington, Ontario chiropractor at Life Chiropractic Centre on Guelph Line in Burlington, Ontario.
I am also a Certified Posture Expert and Postural Neurologist with the American Posture Institute, and a canfitpro certified Personal Training Specialist.
Today we are going to discuss the different possible causes of shoulder pain
The shoulder joint is not just one joint but it is actually 4 joints. There is one joint at each end of the clavicle (collar bone), the ball and socket joint (the shoulder joint proper), and a gliding type joint in the back between the shoulder blade and the rib cage.
Even though there can be a problem with one or more of these, there are surrounding structures that can also mimic shoulder pain – namely the cervical spine (neck), the upper part of the back (thoracic spine) and the ribcage itself; Posture Quadrants 1 and 2.
The most common area that shoulder pain sufferers point to is the top of the shoulder between the neck and the shoulder joint proper.
Once we have ruled out any issues with the 4 shoulder joints, then the cause of the shoulder pain is most likely due to a spinal misalignment (pinched nerve) or posture distortion in Posture Quadrant 1, 2 or both.
And we have talked about this many times before as we were learning about the 4 Posture Quadrants.
And it has been my clinical experience over the years that chiropractic adjustments and postural correction gets greats results with people who suffer from shoulder pain.
So if you or your kids are suffering from shoulder pain, I can help. All you need to do is call to schedule an appointment for your Free Initial Consultation which includes a detailed postural analysis. We will take a close look at the entire posture system including your shoulders.
