Impingement syndrome is a very painful problem affecting more people than you might imagine. Very often people involved with activities that require them lifting or raising their arms above the head frequently suffer with this problem. Impingement syndrome also occurs due to an injury and frequently to older adults. The first noticeable symptom is a very persistent sharp burning pain in the shoulder area. A chiropractic doctor is able to offer the patient a number of options to treat the condition and improve mobility in the area.
The chiropractor might suggest spinal adjustments because the arms and shoulders are connected to this area. Other treatment options might include massage, physical therapy, and exercises to strengthen the muscles in the space. If you are experiencing shoulder pain or impingement syndrome, contact The Spine and Wellness Centers for a consultation.
