Dr. David Sniezek of Advanced Integrative Rehabilitation Center, with locations in Washington DC and McLean, VA, offers care to those suffering from shoulder pain. Our practitioner assists with both acute and chronic problems. Let's discuss everything our practitioner has to provide patients in these areas!
Treatment for a Variety of Issues
Our chiropractor treats both acute and chronic shoulder pain. For instance, you could develop arthritis in your shoulder, which happens when there's swelling in the joint. You may specifically develop osteoarthritis in the shoulder, which is painful damage to the cartilage at the ends of the bones. You could also experience rheumatoid arthritis in this joint, which is when your body's immune system attacks the synovial lining of the joint.
Our chiropractor, with offices in Washington DC and McLean, VA, also treats muscle or tendon stains, shoulder ligament sprains, or a dislocated shoulder, among other issues.
When you arrive, our practitioner will have you fill out a medical history report. It'll include information about any current or previous injuries you've sustained. Our chiropractor will also want to know about your lifestyle and if you've ever had a surgery on the area, among other aspects of your health.
The next step of the process of diagnosing your shoulder pain consists of our practitioner asking you to move your shoulder in specific ways to evaluate your range of motion. Our chiropractor may manually place pressure on different areas of the shoulder to look for tight or inflamed spots.
Variety of Treatment Options
After our chiropractor determines the cause of your pain, he'll decide on a treatment approach most suited for your needs. It may include electrical stimulation therapy or cryotherapy. If our practitioner determines you have a dislocated shoulder, he may move the shoulder joint back into its proper position. Some patients who have shoulder pain may benefit from acupuncture, which consists of our practitioner placing thin needles into designated spots to encourage healing.
For many of our patients, exercise therapy is part of the recovery process and may be used to manage chronic conditions as well. In these cases, the treatment can slow the progression and help you maintain as much of your function and flexibility as possible.
Whether you visit our Washington DC or McLean, VA, office, Dr. Sniezek of Advanced Integrative Rehabilitation Center will assist you in managing or healing your shoulder pain, depending on your particular case. You may visit our office and receive a variety of treatments, all tailored to your unique situation.
