Volleyball is one of the most popular sports in the world although it comes with many common injuries. Repetitively spiking, serving, blocking or improper techniques can cause shoulder injuries. This can result from the overuse of the rotator cuff muscles or instability of the shoulder muscles. When playing, the arm continuously goes into extreme positions in volleyball which can overwork the muscles and ligaments in the shoulder joint. Consequently, this can cause pain, aches, or discomfort in the shoulder. The most common shoulder pain includes shoulder impingement, rotator cuff injury, and osteoarthritis.

How can chiropractic help?
If you are experiencing shoulder related pain, it is a good idea to visit a Chiropractor! It is important to keep your shoulder healthy as it co-functions with your neck, spine and the rest of your body. A Chiropractor can identify and treat the cause of the pain to help you find relief. They work on more than just joints and bones, a Chiropractor also works on cartilage, ligaments and tendons which all helps in your healing journey! A Chiropractor can perform adjustments to help relieve pain, improve your range of motion and can alleviate your symptoms. Your Chiropractor will do a thorough exam to discover the root cause of your pain and will develop a treatment plan that is best suited to address the issue. Some modalities included in your treatment may include:
- Ultrasound wave to promote healing
- Interferential current therapy to stimulate the nervous system and relax the muscles
- Chiropractic adjustments to realign the joint
- Offer you exercises designed to strengthen the muscles surrounding the shoulder joint
Kinesiologists provide wellness, rehabilitation, as well as disease and injury prevention. Their treatment is rehab and exercise focused to help speed up the process of recovery and to help in preventing future shoulder injuries. Our Kinesiologist will evaluate your entire body instead of just focusing on one area to help optimize your functionality. Seeing a Kinesiologist can help build strength in the shoulder for long term recovery and help you reach your best performance!
