ORINDA, Calif., March 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Orinda shoulder specialist Dr. Kevin Wong announced that his practice, Orinda Chiropractic Center, has had substantial success treating patients for shoulder pain using non-invasive chiropractic adjustments. According to Dr. Wong, adjustments to the five main shoulder joints are effective pain management techniques because they address the underlying cause for pain. Dr. Wong frequently treats patients for rotator cuff tears, tendinitis, bursitis, and arthritis of the shoulder.

Individuals who are suffering from shoulder pain many benefit from chiropractic adjustments as an alternative to medication, according to Orinda chiropractor Dr. Kevin Wong. Dr. Wong, an Orinda shoulder specialist, frequently treats patients for shoulder injuries and chronic pain, including rotator cuff injuries and arthritis-related pain conditions.

"The shoulder joints are some of the most frequently used in the body and also have the widest range of motion for any of the joints," said Dr. Wong. "Consequently, they are susceptible to injuries, which can lead to chronic pain. Without proper care, patients can easily end up experiencing chronic pain for years to come. I believe in proactive intervention that directly addresses the root cause for pain."

Shoulders may be injured in several different ways. Some injuries occur as the result of a traumatic event. Repetitive stress or non-ergonomic movements cause other shoulder injuries. The most common shoulder injuries are rotator cuff injuries, tendonitis, arthritis and pinched nerves, according to the Orinda chiropractor.

Rotator cuff tears, for example, are common from golf, tennis and even yoga, says Dr. Wong. The shoulder specialist says that rotator cuff tears occur when repeated movements tear down the tendon, leading to inflammation, restricted mobility, and chronic pain.

"Pain, stiffness and limited mobility are the most common symptoms of a shoulder injury," said Dr. Wong. "Individuals may also experience weakness in the shoulder when they try to lift or push anything. There is a general feeling that the shoulder is not stable, and that the joint may pop out of place at any point."

Orinda chiropractor Dr. Wong offers chiropractic adjustments to the five shoulder joints as a drug-free treatment for this pain.

"Time and time again, patients come to our practice feeling frustrated by their shoulder pain and worried that the only effective treatment option will be medication or surgical intervention," said Dr. Wong. "Chiropractic care is a safe, effective patient-proven treatment option that I strongly recommend."

In addition to providing chiropractic care for shoulder pain, Dr. Wong and his partner, Dr. Isabel Eleazar, offer comprehensive wellness care services, including cold laser therapy and instrument adjusting.

"Dr. Eleazar and I recognize that there is no single one-size-fits-all solution for pain management," said Dr. Wong. "That's why we offer a variety of treatments for fully customized care."
