Elbow or shoulder pain caused by tendinitis

The muscles are "attached" to the bones via tendons, which are fibrous tissues that allow the muscle movements to be transmitted to the joint. When you feel elbow or shoulder pain, it’s likely due to the tendon suffering a micro-tear.
This engenders an inflammation of the tendon or of the layer that covers it, along with pain and limitation of movements. This is diagnosed as tendinitis. The most common forms of tendinitis are called lateral epicondylitis (pain on the side of the elbow) and rotator cuff tendinitis (pain on the side of your shoulder).
Tendinitis can be caused by an overextension (sudden contractions of the tendon), by a poor posture at work that affects the tendons day after day, by overuse of the muscle supported by the tendon (computer usage), or by a problematic joint.
Massages, accompanied by laser, ultrasound or shockwave therapy, can help reduce the pain associated with elbow or shoulder tendinitis, while promoting its healing.

Elbow or shoulder pain caused by bursitis

Elbow or shoulder pain can also be triggered by an inflammation of the bursae, which are small lubricated “pads” found either between two tendons, between the tendons and the skin, between a bone and a muscle, a tendon, a ligament or a fascia. This is diagnosed as bursitis, and this pain in the elbow or shoulder can be the result of an injury (blow), an abrupt movement, an over usage of the area surrounding the bursa, or it can be related to arthritis.
Massages, accompanied by laser, ultrasound or shockwave therapy, can help reduce the pain of elbow or shoulder bursitis, while promoting its healing.

A chiro for you elbow or shoulder pain

Using targeted manipulations, the chiropractor can reduce you elbow or shoulder pain and allow you to regain mobility in your arm. Laser, ultrasound or shockwave therapies can help relieve pain in the area. The biomechanics of the joint, the muscle and the tendons will be restored, while the muscles and soft tissues will be relaxed. Recommendations will also be given to you to help avoid another bursitis or tendonitis.
