Chiropractic Gig Harbor WA New Solutions To Chronic & Acute Shoulder Pain

Here are the most common causes of shoulder pain:

What Are The Typical Treatments In America For Shoulder Pain?

It doesn’t matter if your shoulder pain is acute or chronic, we live in the world where we push pharmaceuticals and steroid shots as the primary solution. Both solutions do not address the underlying causes and at times make the problem worse.

As your Gig Harbor WA chiropractors, we should be asking the question what is the underlying cause, is it the joint, the tendon, a nerve, or muscle problem? WHAT IS CAUSING THE PAIN…… this is what we need to ask!

Instead, we are obsessed with immediate relief and this vicious cycle of pain/meds/pain/meds continues…. There has to be a better way.

Side Effects Of Steroid Shots In Gig Harbor WA

  • Joint degradation
  • Bone loss
  • Increase sugar levels
  • Suppress immune system

Typically, you are only allowed three injections per site per year due to the above side effects.

Hence the question, is there a better way?


  1. Acupuncture: Utilizes needles at specific pressure points that increases circulation to damaged areas. Many studies have shown the effectiveness of acupuncture with rotator cuff syndrome. At Fox we utilize Acupuncture to increase the healing time and increase shoulder range of motion.
  2. Chiropractic: Applies specific forces to mobilize a fixated joint at the GH joint in the shoulder.
    Chiropractic has been a successful modality for many decades with thousands helped with low back pain, neck, pain, and extremity pain
  3. Massage Therapy: can decrease muscle spasms in the mid back and shoulder region to allow increased range of motion and flexibility, this allows the patient to perform daily activities such as reaching up or lifting motions in the shoulder joint

The next time you have shoulder pain, before you take that bottle of pills to get through the next 4 to 6 hours, ask yourself, is there a better way? what is the underlying issue and what’s the right decision for optimal health?
