Chiropractors for Shoulder Pain

on the Sunshine Coast

Are you tired of living with persistent shoulder pain that limits your daily activities and quality of life? Our team has helped Sunshine Coast locals achieve pain relief for the last 33 years.

What causes shoulder pain?

Shoulder pain is common in Australia, affecting 22% of adults. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  • poor posture
  • overuse
  • injuries
  • arthritis
  • underlying musculoskeletal issues

In younger people, it often results from accidents or injuries, while in older people, it can result from natural wear and tear on the shoulder joint and rotator cuff tendons.

The good news is that for most people, shoulder pain can be improved with the appropriate treatment.

Don't let shoulder pain hold you back. Our team of experienced chiropractors are dedicated to diagnosing the root cause of your pain and providing effective treatments to mitigate it, so you can get back to living your life.

Your questions, answered

What types of shoulder conditions can your chiropractors treat?

Our doctors can treat a wide range of shoulder conditions, including rotator cuff injuries, frozen shoulder, tendonitis, and bursitis.

Can chiropractic care help with sports-related shoulder injuries?

Yes, absolutely. We often work with athletes to address sports-related shoulder injuries and enhance their performance.

Is chiropractic care suitable for chronic shoulder pain conditions?

Yes, most definitely. Chiropractic care can be effective for chronic shoulder pain, especially when it's related to musculoskeletal issues.

If I have chronic shoulder pain, how often can I expect to visit your clinic?

This varies based on factors such as the severity of your condition and your response to treatment. Initially, we recommend up to 1-2 visits per week, then fewer visits as pain improves. Once your pain is controlled, we recommend monthly maintenance visits or as needed for ongoing care and prevention.

How quickly can I expect to see improvements?

The time it takes to see improvements varies depending on the severity and cause of your shoulder pain. Many patients experience relief after a few sessions, while others require more extensive treatment.

Should I expect any side effects?

Some patients may experience mild soreness or discomfort after an adjustment, but this is usually temporary. Serious side effects are extremely rare.

Will my private health insurance cover the cost of the treatment?

Many insurance providers cover chiropractic care for shoulder pain treatment. Check with your insurance provider to understand your coverage.

Do I need a referral from my GP to see your team for shoulder pain?

No. As our chiropractors are primary health care practitioners, you do not need a referral to see us. Feel free to book an appointment or ask us any questions.
