Shoulder Pain Treatment | At The Gilbert Clinic

Common Conditions

Several factors and conditions may contribute to shoulder pain. The most common one is rotator cuff tendinitis. This is a condition characterized by irritation and inflammation of the tendons.

Sometimes shoulder pain is the result of injury or issues to another area of the body, the most common being the neck.

Other causes of shoulder pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Torn cartilage
  • Torn rotator cuff
  • Swollen bursa sacs
  • Bone spurs
  • Pinched nerve in the neck
  • Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis)

Athletes who complain of pain should be functionally tested for contributing problems as well.


Dr. Gilbert is highly trained not only in spinal adjustments but extremity manipulations and mobilizations as well. Manipulation to an extremity utilizes a quick but gentle maneuver similar to that applied to the spine. These adjustments along with soft tissue techniques and manipulation done with Massage Therapy increase joint mobility and range of motion, thereby decreasing pain and increasing overall performance of that specific joint. Cold Laser Therapy can also be very beneficial in both acute and chronic conditions.
