Shoulder Pain

Posted , 6 users are following.

So as of lately I've been feeling better (somewhat) but after I started talking about my anxiety and what brought it on to my mom my shoulder started to hurt again. It's like a sharp pain and I usually have it so I'm really wondering if I should go to a chiropractor.

I actually do want to go to a chiropractor but my mom continues to tell me that I'm too young for that and that I shouldn't worry about things like this.

    You don't actually state how old you are, so I am presuming that you are an child, simply because an adult has the ability to out-source medical help without the permission or interference of a parent.

    So then, if you are in fact quite young you should ask your mother to accompany to your doctor, with a view to establishing whether the cause of your shoulder pain is linked to your anxiety issue, or whether there might be another reason for it.

    If I have misread your text and you are in fact an adult, then you do not have to listen to what your mother tells you - if you feel unwell then ask your doctor whether he/she feels that a Chiropractor would help, alternatively go directly to the Chiropractor if you feel that will benefit you.

    Personally I feel that the issue with your shoulder is related to your anxiety, and not to a muskuloskeletal condition, so a Chiropractor would not be much use to you.

    Gabbi, which shoulder and where?  It can indicate other health issues other then anxiety. For example, a sharp pain in your left(?) shoulder can indicate there is something wrong with your spleen  It can also be caused by medication.  Tramadol is notorious for causing bad shoulder and neck pain. It could be anxiety but it is also worth getting it checked out.

    Also, you are never too young to see a Chiropractor, especially if you spend a lot of time hunched over a computer (not saying that you in particular do). A lot of young teens suffer from bad shoulder and neck pains from the amount of time they spend with computers.  It could also be a sports injury.  I once wrenched my shoulder when I was training for my brown belt and it ached badly for six months or more.
