Shoulder pain

The most common reasons for shoulder pain is arthritis or previous injuries.

Many issues that result in shoulder pain are related to the group of nerves called the Brachial Plexus. The nerves in the Brachial Plexus run from the lower neck through the upper shoulder which enable the wrist, arm & shoulder to move and feel. At JC Nerve Centers, we will offer a comprehensive examination and design a customized individual treatment plan to help alleviate your pain.

Traditional options for patients suffering from degenerative shoulder conditions include arthroscopic shoulder surgery to repair tears, or shoulder joint replacement. Both surgeries come with risks and complications as well as months of rehab to regain strength and mobility. As an alternative, JC Nerve Centers offers powerful regenerative treatments, chiropractic care and manual therapy to help alleviate shoulder pain and degeneration. If you are a candidate for surgery, consider our holistic options.

This is not a complete list, so please contact us if you have questions about whether you or your condition can be treated with these non-surgical procedures.

  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Arthritis of the shoulder joint
  • Thoracic outlet syndrome
  • Labral tears or degeneration
  • Rotator cuff tendonitis & tendonosis
  • AC Joint Separation
  • Recurrent shoulder dislocations

Because each case is different, our providers need to perform a complete diagnosis before offering a treatment plan. However, the most common causes and our respective treatments are listed below.

Arthritis – Long term wear and tear causes the body to deposit calcium to help strengthen the soft tissue attachments. These changes are permanent in nature. Our treatments help to restore lost range of motion to the shoulder, which reduces the progression of arthritic conditions.

Impingements in the neck or mid back – A pinched nerve in the back or neck causes pain, tingling, Nerve Pain, or even burning in the shoulder. We find these problem areas and work to treat and improve these impingements.

Misalignments and fixations – When a misalignment occurs in the neck, mid back, shoulder, elbow, or wrist/hand, this can cause pain elsewhere, especially the shoulder, due to the body’s normal range of motion being distorted. Other joints and areas become overly strained to overcompensate for a misalignment in another area. Our providers have extensive knowledge in diagnosing and correcting these conditions.

Repetitive microtrauma – Constantly misusing a joint does significant damage to the body and its parts. Misusing a joint consistently will cause it to wear out and may require surgery for correction. We offer many regenerative surgery alternatives to prevent surgery where we can.

With years of experience in holistic and regenerative medicine, JC Nerve Centers offers treatments that repair the shoulder’s regenerative potential rather than damaging the area further with surgeries or narcotics. Using a precise, image-guided injection of regenerative tissue, JC Nerve Centers can deliver a concentrated injection of healing factors directly into the damaged area. We have seen amazing results with regenerative and holistic medicine as a powerful surgery alternative and a highly effective treatment for degenerative conditions.

As you can see, we don’t simply treat shoulder pain; we work to eliminate and correct the causes of shoulder pain. Patients will undergo an evaluation with our providers who design individualized treatment plans. Every case is different and treatment plans will vary in length and intensity. Our approach centers around relieving pain and restoring functionality to the body. Our staff has achieved great results for those seeking shoulder pain relief in the Jefferson City.

Medical, physical therapy and chiropractic care combined can be an extremely effective treatment for shoulder pain regardless of its cause. Our experienced doctors begin with an examination of the patient’s neck area since shoulder pain can frequently be the result of “referred” pain from the neck. Whether the shoulder pain is connected to the neck or is limited to the lower part of the shoulder, it can generally be treated with non-invasive methods of natural healing.


Care for an injured shoulder may include application of heat, application of ice packs, physical therapy, gentle chiropractic manipulation, effective gentle stretching and strengthening home exercises or regenerative injections to help the shoulder return to its original state of functionality.
