Shoulder Injury from Auto Accident

Are you experiencing shoulder pain from a recent auto accident? Are you looking for a painless, quick, and cost-effective treatment solution? Our team at BlueGrass Chiro with Dr. Dennis Short, DC in Southern Kentucky is here to help.

Shoulder Pain Diagnosis

Shoulder pain diagnosis by our team aims at determining the exact pain points. It's a vital step in choosing the best technique to relieve you from the pain. The diagnostic exam may involve orthopedic tests, CT scans, imaging tests, or an MRI depending on the consultation and physical examination.  

Depending on the severity of the shoulder pain, our experienced team will use techniques to ease your shoulder pain. Most of our patients have reported substantial relief after their sessions.

1. Ultrasound

Treatment of shoulder pain via Ultrasound involves increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation. The process promotes healing the strains, sprains, and tears.

2. Alignment

In alignment, our team not only focuses on aligning and adjusting your spine, but they also go to the extremes of properly aligning your Clavicle, Scapula, and shoulder.

3. Electronic stimulation (E-stim)

Electronic stimulation is a therapeutic technique that we use to ease muscles' tension and pain around your shoulder. It involves the use of electric pulses in mimicking neuron signals in muscles and nerves. The signals sent to the target muscles cause contractions, which improve blood circulation and increase tissue repair rate.

4. Myofascial Release

Our professionals use Myofascial Release Therapy (MFR) in releasing the muscular tension in the shoulder region. The therapy releases fascia, which covers the muscles, thus easing the pain. We may require you to attend a few sessions depending on the extent of your injury or pain.

5. Graston technique

Our professionals use this manual therapy technique to promote motion in muscles. The instruments they use help in determining and breaking scar tissues in areas of restriction. The technique eliminates the need to use anti-inflammatory drugs and fosters quick recovery.
