Misconceptions about Chronic Shoulder & Arm Pain
Most people think that shoulder and arm pain is caused by things like tight muscles, muscle aches, sore muscles, strained muscles or a “pulled” muscle. In some cases, this may be true and chiropractic care can address these issues with treatment and corrective exercises.
Another misconception people make is that exercising their arm will strengthen the “weak muscles” and reduce the pain. Proper diagnosis of the cause of the pain should be the first part of any plan to rehabilitate a weak or injured area.
- Frozen shoulder pain
- Tennis elbow pain

Traditionally, people may try applying heat, ice, stretching, massaging the painful area and medication. These treatment options can be ineffective as they are not addressing the cause of the condition.
