  • Poor posture

How Chiropractic Care Helps Shoulder Blade Pain

While shoulder blade pain is a common issue many people experience, you shouldn’t accept it as a normal part of life. In fact, more and more people are seeking out natural remedies to help rid them of their chronic and acute pain, leading them to their local chiropractic team. 

Chiropractic care can help with shoulder blade pain in several ways; however, the two most common methods of treatment include spinal adjustments and massage therapy.

Spinal Adjustments

A spinal adjustment, otherwise known as spinal manipulation, is the process of applying a controlled force to the vertebrae of the spine. This process helps to realign the body’s musculoskeletal system to help relieve pain and take the pressure off the body’s joints. 

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is often used alongside spinal adjustments to help relax the body and further target specific muscle groups that could be causing your shoulder blade pain. Much like a spinal adjustment, massage therapists will apply pressure to particular parts of the body to help reduce stress, pain, and so much more.
