Shoulder injuries are extremely common. This is due in part to the shallow joint which allows for extreme freedom of movement, therefore making the shoulder vulnerable. Most athletes are familiar with rotator cuff injuries, but there are other shoulder problems that can develop overtime from everyday stress. Chiropractic is a great way to aid the healing process of all types of shoulder injuries.
what our patients are saying
"I would take ibuprofen daily...but it was never enough."
I had seen a few different chiropractors and acupuncturists about the constant pain I suffered in my neck, shoulders, and back. They would temporarily help for a few days or so, but my pains always crept back. For over five years, this was my routine. The pain made it difficult to drive, exercise, and get things done around the house. I would take ibuprofen daily to help reduce the pain, but it was never enough to remove it. My previous doctors were only addressing the pain, but not the causes.
After just a few visits, I'm MUCH better. I can turn my neck again, and the pain doesn't seem to creep back the way it used to. I thought that I would have to come for several treatments before seeing measurable improvements, but within 3 weeks of seeing Dr. Kelly, I feel better than I have in YEARS!! Her combination of treatments keep me pain-free with only a few follow-up visits--whereas I had been seeing my previous doctors weekly for years.
"...I couldn't reach for anything and when I tried I would be in excruciating pain"
I had an accident at Safeway, slipped on a puddle of water and severely injured my left shoulder. The next few days I couldn't raise my arm, I couldn't reach for anything and when I tried I would be in excruciating pain. I couldn't sleep on it, and was getting a minimal amount of sleep at night. After just a few visits with Dr. Kelly, my range of motion became easier; I now can reach and raise my arm without any pain. i am no longer worrying as much because the pain has subsided and I can relax enough to get a good night's sleep.
"...After only a few visits she had me sleeping through the night without pain."
I had a flare up of arthritis in my left shoulder due to a re-injury of an old injury. I was having trouble sleeping due to the pain. I visited my orthopedic doctor who said I had 4 alternatives: cortisone shots, pain killers, don't use my shoulder, or surgery. I didn't like his answer so I came to see Dr. Kelly. She worked with me and after only a few visits she had me sleeping through the night without pain. 8 weeks later there was significant healing and I was nearly pain free. It has been almost 6 months now and I have no pain. I am able to do everything that I did before the injury.
"The tightness of my neck and shoulders improved by 50%"
A few months ago, while biking, my right knee pain occurred and I could not continue biking. I was referred to Dr. Kelly's clinic by my friend, Raymond. I would rate the pain 7 out of 10 on the pain scale. I came in with pain in my right knee, which occurred a few months ago after an hour of biking. I also had tingling and numbness on neck and shoulder, which had begun to happen last year 2/10.
After seeing Dr. Kelly in 7 visits, I feel no pain in the knee. Also after 25 miles of bike riding I still feel strong with no loss of strength which usually weakened by pain. The tightness of my neck and shoulders and improved by 50 %. After back adjustments, I now can stand more upright, no more hunchback!
