Upper Back, Shoulder Pain

Pain in the upper back or shoulder region can be the result of a variety of factors. There are a number of muscles, tendons and ligaments in this area, all of which can cause or contribute to pain in this area. Unfortunately, most people assume pain in this region is simply muscle pain when a good case can be made that most muscle pain can be a result of faulty spinal alignment and nerve flow to the muscles. A chiropractor, through a series of orthopedic and neurological tests as well as feedback during treatment can determine the source of your problem and advise you how to correct it.
