A painful condition of shoulders is a frequent complaint. Shoulder pain is the third leading reason for musculoskeletal pain. The majority of adults be suffering from shoulder pain at one stage in their lives. A shoulder injury is more frequently at the middle of age (40-65 years).
The shoulder pain of some patients is such that they will undergo surgery. Many will gain a great degree of pain relief. However, some will be left with an injury to their shoulder after surgery. This article will provide a natural method for providing shoulder pain relief after surgery. It will also introduce research that details a non-surgical and treatment that is free of drugs to help post-surgical shoulder problems with persistent pain . We will also present two successful case study presentations.

As a chiropractor for over 35 years I have helped many people with shoulder pain. It’s a complicated joint. There are a variety of bursas, bones, tendons, muscles and ligaments associated on the shoulders. Additionally, there is a fibrous capsule, containing fluid, that covers the joint. It is a joint that is able to move in any direction.
One of the major characteristics that is unique to the shoulder area is that it is linked with our neck which is also known as the cervical spine. Nerves exit openings between the bones of the cervical spine which connect to muscles which help the joint to move freely and correctly.
The treatment of shoulder discomfort with chiropractic looks to improve improper movement or misalignment of the bones on the cervical spine and therefore improve the functionality of the shoulder joint. In addition, treatment for injury of the shoulder joint itself should be addressed with chiropractic care.
I am reminded of a patient, George who sought me out after having rotator cuff surgery. His surgery had improved his shoulder movement substantially, but he felt moderate discomfort when performing certain shoulder movements. When I examined George I noticed that the misalignment of the neck bones and some slight restrictions on movement of the bones in the socket of his shoulder. Chiropractic manipulation (sometimes known as the adjustment for chiropractic) aids in re-aligning spinal vertebrae and restore movement of the shoulder joint. After the adjustment, George was able to enjoy complete shoulder pain relief and normal shoulder movement.
A patient I have, Tom, had surgery to repair a labral tear in the shoulder. His recovery was initially quite great, but then seemed to slow in the months following the procedure. He said his pain level was reduced by about 20% following the surgery procedure. However, he still felt some slight postoperative shoulder pain in both rest and exercise. The exam of Tom discovered spinal misalignments in his upper and lower back as well as some restrictions in movement of the scapula bone , which is commonly referred to as the shoulder blade. Through chiropractic adjustments, we restored the proper motion as well as alignment for these areas and Tom got rid of his shoulder discomfort.
A research study conducted in 2018 revealed that post-surgical shoulder patients who had persistent pain, receiving spinal manipulation , significantly improved the shoulder’s movement and stability. Studies have found similar improvements in pain, motion and shoulder stability when chiropractic care was performed, following surgery for shoulder discomfort.
A majority of patients who visit chiropractors report that getting a chiropractic adjustment is a comfortable, safe experience since adjustments correct spinal misalignments, and locked up movement of fixated extremity joints.
Because of this, many patients opt for natural, drug free gentle chiropractic care for shoulder pain relief following surgery.
