What Should I do if I have Shoulder Pain?
Shoulder problems including pain, are one of the more common reasons for visiting us. Shoulders are a very complex structure. With connections, muscles coming from the neck, chest, back and spine.
We can advise on the best sort of treatment for your shoulder aches and pains. Treatment for Frozen Shoulder for instance will be different to treatment for rotator cuff injury. Our Chiropractor will recommend the right combination of treatment such as massage, exercises and chiropractic treatment for shoulder or elbow pain.

If you are unsure of the cause of your shoulder pain you should seek Chiropractic help. Treatment is directed at the specific cause of your problem to be effective.
