What Causes Pain In The Shoulder Joint? Is It Really A Swimmer Problem? 

Swimmer’s shoulder is a common caused by repetitive use of the shoulder joint. It is most common in athletes who swim, especially freestyle and backstroke swimmers. The condition can also be caused by:

  • Bony changes that cause tightness or weakness in surrounding muscles.
  • Overuse injuries to tendons or ligaments that surround and support the shoulder joint.

Chiropractic Care For Tight Shoulders

Chiropractic care can help relieve pressure on the nerves of the spinal cord and improve joint function in the shoulder.

As swimmer’s shoulder is caused by repeated movement and use of the shoulder joint, chiropractic care can help to restore normal function and range of motion in the shoulder. This will reduce pain associated with swimmer’s shoulder as well as prevent it from returning again in future.

If you are suffering from swimmer’s shoulder, make an appointment to see one of our chiropractors today. With over 20 years experience in the treatment of sports injuries, they will be able to help you get back to your sport as soon as possible.

Physical Therapy For The Sea Swimmer 

Physical therapy can help to strengthen muscles that support the shoulder and prevent swimmer’s shoulder from returning.

Laser Therapy To Reduce Inflammation 

Laser therapy can reduce pain and improve function of the shoulder. Laser therapy works by stimulating the cells in the body to produce energy and promote healing.

This will help reduce pain and inflammation caused by swimmer’s shoulder as well as improve function of the shoulder joint. It uses light to stimulate a positive response in the body – similarly to how light causes photosynthesis in plants, it is just an other form of photosynthesis.

Shockwave Therapy 

Shockwave therapy is a type of treatment that uses sound waves to help relieve pain and improve range of motion by relieving tension in tight muscles. It can be used on its own or as part of physical therapy treatments for swimmer’s shoulder.

There is a lot of research to support the use of shockwave therapy for repetitive, long-term conditions, like rotator cuff tears and bicep tendinopathy.

Intrinsic Core Strengthening

At Dublin Physical & Chiropractic we believe it is important to have a strong core, all the muscles that connect to the pelvis and ribcage.

The core muscles act as a stabilizer for the shoulders during swimming, helping to prevent swimmer’s shoulder from occurring in the first place.

The stronger your core is, the better support it will give you when swimming or performing any other activity that requires strength and endurance of these muscles groups.

Non-surgical Spinal Decompression

Non-surgical spinal decompression is a treatment that uses a machine to help stretch and decompress the spine.

This will help to relieve pressure on the nerves of the spinal cord and improve joint function in the shoulder. It can also help to restore normal movement in the spine.

If you are suffering from swimmer’s shoulder, make an appointment to see one of our chiropractors today. With over 20 years experience in the treatment of sports injuries, they will be able to help you get back to your sport as soon as possible.
