A stiff neck and a frozen shoulder are common issues that you may face in multiple scenarios. It may be post workout, after lifting something heavy, due to an accident or even after waking up in the morning. The reason for this shoulder pain is usually strain in muscles or pinching of nerves. Shock in accident or the uneven distribution of weight in workout or an incorrect and strained sleeping position can lead to severe pain as well. The type of pain can vary from continuous to intermittent or a pain that sears up when trying to lift something to moving shoulders. Sometimes a little rest stops the pain but after some time it starts again.

In all these situations of shoulder pain and related neck pain, you should seek medical help. First and foremost get a diagnosis. And secondly, trust that surgery as well as medication is not the first and only option. Many types of muscular and nerve pinching issues can be remedied by consulting a chiropractor. Visit a chiropractor in Lexington KY; after all it has some great ones. Tell the chiropractor the issue and let him diagnose it. A chiropractor uses alignment and soft tissue adjustment techniques to decrease the pressure from the strained muscles and also restores muscle tones and balance leading to lowered pressure on nerves. This process when repeated over a period of time can greatly help in pain.

So give our office a call and Dr. Gallentine will judge the nature of your muscle injury and if it is of serious magnitude, will refer you to doctors or surgeons as required.
