Shoulder Pain

Waking up with an achy shoulder can be a nightmare, especially if you have a long schedule ahead of you. While shrugging off the pain might seem easy,  it would be best to get to the bottom of your symptom. Sometimes shoulder pain can result from an atlas subluxation. That’s why many patients with this health complaint often seek help from a chiropractor for shoulder pain.

When the topmost neck bones – C1 and C2 (atlas and axis) – shift from their neutral position, they can affect the rest of your spine. Additionally, they can cause your neck and shoulder muscles to stiffen, limiting your range of motion. It can also lead to significant pain, especially if the atlas subluxation leads to conditions like levator scapulae syndrome.

If you think you have issues with your posture because of previously sustained neck injuries or physical trauma, you might find it helpful to consult an Upper Cervical chiropractor for shoulder pain. This way, you can undergo the necessary assessments to check for cervical spine misalignments and determine how often you should come back for a follow-up consultation or adjustment. 

Upper Cervical Chiropractic has been the go-to option for many people with recurring or chronic symptoms like shoulder and neck pain. It applies to a broad spectrum of people, regardless of age, sex, occupation, and physical fitness level.
