Your shoulder is the most complex joint in your body. Its mobility means that shoulder pain is a high risk for most people. Dr. Paul Bryngelson of Dream Street Chiropractic in Florence, KY, treats the many complexities of your shoulder in a non-invasive way.Chiropractic adjustment
The chiropractic adjustment is the cornerstone of chiropractic treatment. Many different options for how it is provided are available. The Diversified technique is taught at almost every chiropractic college and includes the traditional type of adjustment that most people associate with chiropractic manipulation. It involves a thrust to the vertebrae and produces a distinctive sound. Adjustments can also be used on the extremities and the shoulder joint is in that category.PulStar
PulStar is an instrument adjustment system that also shows the results on a screen for the chiropractor and the patient to see how movement is accomplished. Pain can be greatly reduced within three to four visits and that makes for happy patients. It is particularly good for young and elderly patients or for those who are uncomfortable with the sound produced by traditional adjustment.Electric muscle stimulation
Electrical muscle stimulation uses low levels of electric current to stimulate the muscles in the shoulder and help them to relax. We offer three different varieties of electrical muscle therapy. Your chiropractor will discuss the different options and explain which one is right for your condition. The current can be used not only to relax the muscles but to decrease swelling and pain.Cold laser therapy
Cold laser therapy uses low spectrum levels of light to treat pain and can help with shoulder pain. It raises the temperature of tissues minimally and helps accelerate healing by inducing cells to release more energy.Therapeutic exercise
Therapeutic exercise is designed to help with recovery from a variety of conditions that chiropractors treat, including shoulder pain. This type of exercise is designed to help with flexibility, balance, mobilizing joints, and reducing rigidity. Your exercise plan will be personalized to your particular condition and allow you to continue your recovery while you are at home.
