Shoulder pain can prevent you from living your life and doing the things you love. This type of pain can range from mild to severe and typically occurs from overuse. Chronic shoulder pain most commonly affects adolescent and adult athletes and people who work physical, repetitive jobs. At the office of Dr. Hunter A. Mollin, DC, we effectively treat shoulder pain issues by identifying the cause and customizing therapies for each patient in order for them to live pain free and with restored range of motion.
Most shoulder problems fall into four major categories:
Chiropractic care can be a great way to manage and relieve swelling and discomfort caused by shoulder pain. Chiropractors deliver a gentle, non-invasive, non-addictive therapy — known as “adjustments” —which reduce joint restrictions or misalignments in the spine and all joints in the body. The goal is to reduce pain, decrease inflammation and improve flexibility, muscle tone, and strength using the body’s own mechanics rather than drug therapies.
At the office of Dr. Hunter A. Mollin, DC, we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate chiropractic care. Based on the findings of your consultation and exam, we may co-treat your shoulder pain with other healthcare professionals including massage therapists, physical therapists or your primary care physician.

If you’re experiencing pain in your shoulder, whether due to an injury or just normal wear and tear, you may benefit from seeing a chiropractor. Shoulder pain is very common with athletes who have suffered injuries or overuse, but can also be a result of inflammation (eg, tendinitis), or even diseases such as arthritis.
Whatever the cause, seeking attention from a chiropractor is a good way to help relieve the pain as part of a holistic approach to your health. The goal is to reduce pain and inflammation, improve your range of motion and flexibility, and strengthen your shoulder muscles.
All of our chiropractors are specially trained in the treatment and diagnosis of neuromuscular disorders and manual adjustment techniques. These techniques involve a varied approach, depending on your specific needs, including:
For shoulder pain, your chiropractor will likely want to see you on a regular basis to provide the best outcomes. All care is safe and non-invasive, and incorporates your overall wellbeing. The approach is based on the premise that your body is interconnected so that correcting any misalignment in the spine can help reduce inflammation and improve nervous system function. This, in turn, can help to manage the pain in your shoulder.
The first step is to set up an appointment for an evaluation. At this meeting, we can diagnosis the issue and design a plan that is best for you.
