Shoulder Pain

Find Shoulder Pain Relief with Proctor Chiropractic in Tacoma, WA

Dealing with shoulder issues can be not only uncomfortable, but cause major pain for daily activities. While we use our shoulders throughout any given day, dealing with this pain can be frustrating, annoying, and limit your mobility. Many people try to take medication to temporarily relive the pain, but sometimes medications aren’t very effective, and they’re just short-term solutions. One solution to the problem involves seeing a chiropractic expert. Treatment for shoulder pain at Proctor Chiropractic in Tacoma, WA is a healthy and safe way to combat shoulder issues and the results are long lasting. In order to receive the best treatment plan for your pain, it’s vital to first understand how this pain is caused. See below for the common causes of shoulder issues:

Woman suffering from shoulder painDislocated Shoulder

While a dislocated shoulder is common in basketball, football, or any high-intensity activity, a dislocation can happen at any time and to anybody. A chiropractor can help people after a dislocation bring back movement and restore functionality to the shoulder through corrective exercises and chiropractic rehabilitation.

Shoulder Bursae 

Shoulder bursae is a sack of fluid that is found between tissues in the shoulder. When working properly, this forms a cushion for our joints to move comfortably. When it’s irritated, it can cause discomfort and pain. 

Frozen Shoulder

Frozen shoulder usually happens when scar tissue forms in the shoulder joint. This can cause severe stiffness and pain in the whole shoulder region. 

Rotator Cuff Injury 

Rotator cuff tears and injuries are usually caused from playing baseball, but you’ll also see these injuries happen in football, softball, or any sport that uses the shoulder aggressively. Depending on the severity of the injury, it can take a while to heal, but chiropractic care can help limit the pain and improve your range of motion. 

Strains and Sprains

Since we use our shoulders at an intense level on any given day, common strains and sprains can happen. Whether you’re riding a bike, taking a run, or walking the dog, our shoulders are used more than you think. 


Tendinitis in the shoulder is usually caused by sports injuries, but it can also be caused by a high-impact injury or wear and tear from everyday life. Tendinitis occurs when tissues in the shoulder become stiff and inflamed.
