Shoulder Pain

Is your shoulder pain limiting your ability to do the activities you love to do? or making it difficult to do even the simplest things? 

We will get to the root cause of your shoulder pain, so when we treat it, it will not only feel better but be less likely to return. Not all chiropractors work on shoulders, but all the chiropractors at Drummond Chiropractic are shoulder experts. With multiple chiropractors in the clinic, one of us should be able to see you ASAP! 

Looking for home remedies for shoulder pain relief? 

Scroll down to the bottom of this webpage for stretches, exercises and other home remedies for shoulder pain relief. Before you try any new remedy, talk with your health care provider to verify it is appropriate for your specific condition. Hopefully that is one of our chiropractors here at Drummond Chiropractic. We are more than neck and pain chiropractors. We have Dr. McCoy, a sports chiropractic specialist on staff, with specialized training with shoulder injuries, be it from sports, or from regular day activities like lifting your children, or helping a friend move furniture. You do not have to be an elite athlete to take advantage of his skills with shoulder injuries.

That is the Drummond Difference.

You may be surprised to find out that your shoulder pain is a symptom of a nerve being pinched in your neck, lymphatic back up, tendonosis of an arm muscle, or maybe it is caused by something wrong with your shoulder. Regardless of the cause of your shoulder pain, we will find it with a thorough history and exam, then determine the best treatment plan for it, even if it means referring you out. We are more affordable than orthopedic surgeons and physical therapists, so start with us, and if able, we will get you back on your feet as soon as possible. 

Dr. Michael McCoy is more than a spine specialist as a chiropractor, but also a joint (including shoulder pain) specialist. He not only will work on your shoulder, but any issue that may be contributing to your shoulder condition. He can train you on how to restrengthen your body so that your shoulder is less vulnerable to re-injury.

Once we determine that we can help your shoulder pain, we will treat same day, demonstrate home exercises and stretches you can do to speed your recovery.

We will follow up the appointment with a Report of Findings email that details what your condition is, what our treatment plan is and lists the prescribed exercises and stretches, complete with videos that you can follow along with. To learn more, check out:

Heat or Ice?

IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING PAIN and are looking for an alternative to over-the-counter pain relievers, temperature therapy may be an option. Heat therapy and ice therapy are useful, and sometimes can be used interchangeably.

The Safest Way to Heat/Ice for Shoulder Pain

I believe the safest self heat/ice treatment for most shoulder pain is to

1.     Heat the upper arm and upper back (avoiding the shoulder) for ten minutes to bring nutrient-filled blood to the area and to relax the muscles surrounding the elbow

2.     Stretch the shoulder muscles gently while the muscles are warm and pliable (as shown in the stretches mentioned above).

3.     Finish with two minutes of ice to the most intense spot of pain in the shoulder to calm any inflammation that may have worsened with the heat and stretching.

Topical creams and oils that can help with shoulder pain


cryoderm for shoulder pain

Cryoderm is a formula designed not only to alleviate pain, but it's ingredients also facilitate healing. Cryoderm is available in a spray, gel and roll-on. For shoulder pain, the roll-on application preferred because the roll-on can be used the physically massage the region during the application process. If you have the spray bottle, be careful not to overspray on to the face, especially cautious to avoid any over spray into the eyes, as it will burn terribly.  CLICK HERE to learn more about Cryoderm.
