Shoulder Pain Q & A

What causes shoulder pain?

Many factors can result in chronic pain in the shoulder area. Dr. Rainaldo practices applied kinesiology techniques to highlight the cause of the pain.

Through muscle testing and other kinesiology methods, Dr. Rainaldo identifies points on the body that require treatment to relieve your shoulder pain. In some cases, shoulder pain is the result of unresolved issues in other parts of the musculoskeletal system.

Common causes of shoulder pain include the following:

  • Arthritis
  • Pinched nerves
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Muscle inflammation
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Bone breaks or fractures
  • Injuries to ligaments and muscles

Radiating pain from other areas of the body including the back and neck could be causing your shoulder pain.

How is shoulder pain diagnosed?

Dr. Rainaldo performs a comprehensive physical exam to diagnose your shoulder pain.

During your appointment, Dr. Rainaldo reviews your medical history and discusses previous injuries that may be causing your chronic shoulder pain. He also reviews your dietary intake and fitness routine to get a better understanding of what your body needs to heal.

What treatments are available for shoulder pain?

He may apply spinal manipulation techniques to release pressure on any pinched nerves. Dr. Rainaldo also recommends physical therapy exercises if muscle tightness is causing your pain.

Dr. Rainaldo also suggests dietary supplements, including vitamins and herbs, if he detects any nutrient deficiencies. Improper nutrition and consuming food products with harmful chemicals that cause a buildup of toxins in the body, resulting in shoulder pain, hormonal imbalances, and medical problems.
