Massage for Shoulder Pain as Discussed by a Chiropractor In Tallahassee, FL

Posted By Dr. Eric Pragle, DC, LMT

Shoulder pain is quite common with many causes from overuse injuries, direct trauma, improper bed, and even working on a computer for 8 hours a day with one arm forward working the mouse can cause the chest to be tight and aggravate the shoulder.  The most common form of shoulder pain comes from a muscle imbalance.  Many people have tight chest muscles and weak upper back muscles which causes rounded shoulders and extra stress and strain on the shoulder muscles as well as the joint itself.  Massage therapy can be a beneficial treatment for shoulder pain as it reduces muscle restrictions  in the chest, shoulder and upper back.
