One of the most commonly injured body parts is the shoulder. A shoulder injury can be very debilitating and interfere with your daily activities. If you have been injured, it is important to seek our chiropractor, Dr. Christopher Frey at Circle Chiropractic Center, PC in Fairfax, VA, for shoulder pain treatment.
Types of Shoulder Injuries
The following types of shoulder injuries can occur:
Rotator Cuff Tear
Rotator cuff tear is a common shoulder injury that occurs when the tendons or muscles in the shoulder are torn. Rotator cuff tear can be excruciating and limit your range of motion.
A dislocated shoulder occurs when the joint ball pops out of the socket. This can be a painful injury and can also cause damage to the surrounding ligaments and muscles.
The collarbone is the bone that connects the shoulder to the chest. A fracture of this bone can occur if you receive a direct blow to the area.

There are many ways that a shoulder injury can occur. Typically, the force of the impact during an accident causes the shoulder to be forced out of its socket. This can result in a dislocated shoulder or a rotator cuff injury. Sometimes, an impact can cause a fracture in the shoulder blade.
