The shoulder is a very flexible joint resulting in some compromise in stability; this may make it vulnerable to injury. Poor postural habits and sedentary lifestyles can also make us prone to trauma resulting in conditions such as tendonitis (rotator cuff tendonitis) and impingement syndromes. The Elbow is also very prone to tendonitis (tennis elbow arising from associated musculoskeletal conditions of the back and neck) secondary to repetitive use.
Chiropractor at City Chiropractic Clinic takes a detailed history of your condition and performs a thorough examination to try to get to the underlying cause of your shoulder, elbow or wrist pain.
Chiropractic treatment aims to improve and maximise joint function. After making a diagnosis, our chiropractor uses techniques such as massage, mobilisation, manipulation and taping, together with recommending postural improvements and exercises to help address muscle imbalances and help to prevent recurrence.
