Restoring Shoulder Function: Effective Treatment for Labrum Tears at Southside Chiropractic

Labrum tears in the shoulder are common injuries that can result from trauma, repetitive motion, or degenerative changes over time. These tears can cause pain, instability, and limited range of motion, significantly impacting daily activities and quality of life. At Southside Chiropractic, we specialize in providing comprehensive care and treatment for individuals suffering from labrum tears, offering targeted solutions to alleviate pain, restore function, and promote optimal shoulder health.

A labrum tear occurs when the cartilage surrounding the shoulder socket (glenoid) becomes damaged or torn. This can happen due to a sudden injury, such as a fall or sports-related trauma, or from repetitive stress on the shoulder joint over time. Common symptoms of a labrum tear include shoulder pain, especially with overhead movements or reaching behind the back, a sensation of catching or locking in the shoulder, and a feeling of shoulder instability.

Our approach to treating labrum tears at Southside Chiropractic focuses on addressing the underlying cause of the injury and providing holistic, non-invasive solutions to promote healing and restore shoulder function. We begin with a thorough evaluation of the shoulder joint, including a physical examination and diagnostic imaging, to assess the extent of the labrum tear and any associated damage.

Once the severity of the injury is determined, we develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to each patient’s specific needs and goals. Our treatment approach may include a combination of the following therapies:

Chiropractic Adjustments: Gentle adjustments to the spine and shoulder joints can help restore proper alignment, reduce inflammation, and alleviate pain associated with a labrum tear. By improving joint mobility and function, chiropractic care supports the body’s natural healing processes.

Soft Tissue Therapy: Massage therapy, myofascial release, and other soft tissue techniques can help relax tight muscles, improve circulation, and reduce scar tissue formation around the injured labrum. These therapies can enhance range of motion, decrease pain, and promote tissue healing.

Rehabilitative Exercises: Customized exercise programs are designed to strengthen the muscles surrounding the shoulder joint, improve stability, and enhance overall shoulder function. These exercises may include stretching, strengthening, and proprioceptive training to address muscle imbalances and restore proper movement patterns.

Modalities: We may incorporate modalities such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, or cold therapy to further reduce pain and inflammation, promote tissue healing, and accelerate the recovery process.

Patient Education: We believe in empowering our patients with the knowledge and tools they need to actively participate in their recovery. We provide guidance on proper posture, ergonomic modifications, and home exercises to support ongoing healing and prevent re-injury.
