Sore Shoulder

Pain in the front of the upper arm with certain movements, coupled with soreness to pressure, may be an inflamed bicipital tendon; aka bicipital tendonitis; or tenosynovitis, which is inflammation of the tendon sheath. The tendon may be under abnormal stress where it lies in a groove on the front of the humerus (bone of the upper arm), due to abnormal internal or external rotation of the humerus. With Activator Chiropractic Technique, I check alignment of the humerus and precisely correct it as needed. Follow up home care is prescribed to address residual inflammation.
