Chiropractor for Shoulder Pain in Kansas City

Are you experiencing shoulder pain?

Shoulder pain can be caused by muscular tension, lifestyle factors, poor posture, improper biomechanics and stress. Shoulder pain is often the result of inaccurate soft tissue function and muscular activation unless acute or overuse trauma has occurred. Poor breathing strategies require certain muscles of the chest, shoulders, and neck to overactivate, causing pain within the neck, shoulders, arms, and hands.

Common treatments for shoulder pain vary depending on the causative factors. Evidence-based treatment protocols are vital for long-lasting beneficial effects. Leading soft tissue therapies for the shoulder include A.R.T., Dry Needling, and Graston.
