Understanding your family’s medical history as it relates to shoulder pain is one of the first steps your Chiropractor will take in diagnosing your injury and how it should be treated. They will most likely ask you a variety of questions that relate to the origins of your pain, whether or not you have noticed any type of pain before, and how you may have treated prior injuries.
Each of our patients is offered a thorough examination that reviews the entirety of your injury, as well as any possible connections to other existing ailments that may have developed as a result of your shoulder pain. During your examination, your Chiropractor will look to identify areas that appear to be swollen, deformed, or abnormal. They will most likely ask you to perform a number of stretches and follow through with a variety of actions in order to assess your complete range of motion.
Depending on the extent of your injury, your Chiropractor may ask to perform a number of tests that help provide additional insight into the nature of your injury. These tests include:
X-rays – May be ordered to see if a fracture exists.
MRI or Ultrasound – Understand whether or not there is any soft tissue damage or if the ligaments and tendons that surround your shoulder joints are torn.
Electrical Studies – May be used to examine and evaluate the degree of your nerve function.
Arthrogram – This sees your Chiropractor add dye to your X-ray study in order to better see whether or not your joints or muscles are damaged.
CT Scans – Combines X-rays with digital technology in order to create a specific, detailed view of the bones that exist within your shoulders.
