Shoulder Pain


Shoulder pain can be quite annoying and can impact your daily life activities, if you’ve experienced this before then you know just how uncomfortable shoulder pain can be. 

Shoulder pain is most common in athletes who participate in regular physical activity, people who work at a desk, and the elderly where the pain is usually coming from arthritis in the shoulder joint 

Shoulder pain can differ from person to person, you can experience one or a combination of the following symptoms: 

  • dull ache 
  • loss of movement and stiffness 
  • sharp pain 
  • shooting pain referring up the neck or into the arms and hands  
  • headaches 
  • loss of shoulder strength 

Some of the common causes of shoulder pain we see at Avia Chiropractic are: 

  • spinal misalignment (spinal joints not moving freely) affecting the shoulder, elbow, and wrist joints 
  • incorrect lifting technique 
  • prolonged sitting 
  • poor posture 
  • poor sleep position 
  • sporting injuries – dislocation, sprains, strains. 
  • overuse/ repetitive strain injuries 
  • car accidents 

If left untreated many of these causes can alter the way in which you move, function, and feel.  Therefore, contributing to wear and tear of the shoulder, elbow and wrist joints, spinal degeneration in the neck and midback, and muscle pain and spasms.


At Avia Chiropractic we take a thorough approach to Shoulder pain, if we determine we can help you, then we will find the root cause of the problem by examining your entire body – not just where the pain is.
