Following an accident, if you have been injured, even slightly, it’s always best to seek medical attention as soon as possible so you give yourself the best chance of recovering completely. With accidents, shoulder injuries are common. Lucky for you, our Jonesboro chiropractors have had a great deal of experience treating these injuries and can help you get on the road to recovery.
Deep Tissue Bruising
When you think of a bruise it may not seem that bad, however, when the bruise is located deep in the tissue, it can be extremely painful. When bruising occurs internally within your shoulder, the shoulder and into your arm can become completely immobile.
Rotator Cuff Tear
When the rotator cuff in your shoulder becomes torn, this makes lifting your arm up high seem almost impossible and causes a great deal of pain. This type of injury after an auto accident can take many months heal, however, working with our Jonesboro chiropractors may help alleviate the pain and may help in the healing process.
When the inner cartilage of the shoulder has torn all the way off the shoulder joint this is known as a SLAP tear. It’s called a SLAP tear because the tear occurs from the superior labrum to the anterior to the posterior. Mobility with this injury is limited but the pain will be intense. The healing process may be slow as it takes time for the cartilage to heal, however working with a chiropractor may be an effective pain management tool to utilize.
