Shoulder Impingement Syndrome and SoftWave Therapy: A Holistic Approach to Pain Relief

Published November 2nd, 2023 by Dr. Sam Camarata

Shoulder pain is a common complaint, affecting millions of individuals each year. One of the prevalent causes of shoulder pain is Shoulder Impingement Syndrome. This condition can be both painful and debilitating, impacting your daily activities and overall quality of life. At Camarata Chiropractic & Wellness, led by Dr. Sam Camarata and his dedicated team, we take a holistic approach to addressing Shoulder Impingement Syndrome, offering patients a superior non-surgical, non-injection option for pain relief: SoftWave Tissue Regeneration Therapy.

Understanding Shoulder Anatomy

To comprehend Shoulder Impingement Syndrome, it's crucial to grasp the intricate anatomy of the shoulder. The shoulder is a complex joint, involving multiple bones, muscles, and soft tissues. These include the humerus (upper arm bone), scapula (shoulder blade), and clavicle (collarbone), as well as the rotator cuff muscles, tendons, and the bursa sac.

Upper Crossed Syndrome and Poor Posture

Poor posture, often caused by prolonged periods of sitting and computer work, can lead to Upper Crossed Syndrome. This condition results in muscular imbalances, affecting the alignment of the shoulders and neck. Upper Crossed Syndrome contributes to dysfunction in the shoulder, increasing the risk of impingement.

Causes and Symptoms of Shoulder Impingement Syndrome

Shoulder Impingement Syndrome occurs when the rotator cuff tendons and the bursa sac become compressed within the shoulder joint, causing pain, inflammation, and limited mobility. 

The key causes of this condition include:

Overuse: Repetitive overhead activities, such as lifting weights or reaching, can strain the shoulder muscles and tendons.

Poor Posture: As mentioned, Upper Crossed Syndrome and poor posture can lead to shoulder dysfunction.

Bone Spurs: Abnormal bone growth can reduce the space within the shoulder joint, leading to impingement.

Common symptoms of Shoulder Impingement Syndrome include:

Pain when lifting the arm, potential weakness, and a limited range of motion in the shoulder.

Traditional Treatments for Shoulder Impingement

Traditional treatments for Shoulder Impingement Syndrome often include rest, physical therapy, pain medications, and corticosteroid injections. While these methods may provide temporary relief, they do not address the underlying causes of the condition or promote long-term healing.

A Superior Alternative: SoftWave Tissue Regeneration Therapy

At Camarata Chiropractic & Wellness, we offer patients a groundbreaking non-surgical and non-injection alternative for pain relief and healing: SoftWave Tissue Regeneration Therapy. This cutting-edge therapy employs electrohydraulic supersonic acoustic waves to stimulate the body's natural healing processes. 

The mechanism behind SoftWave Therapy is a multi-faceted approach, which includes:

Pain Reduction: 

SoftWave Therapy effectively decreases pain associated with Shoulder Impingement Syndrome, allowing patients to regain their comfort and mobility.

Inflammation Reduction: 

It targets inflammation at its source, aiding in the reduction of swelling and discomfort.

Scar Tissue Breakdown: 

SoftWave Therapy helps to break down scar tissue that may have formed in the shoulder, improving tissue flexibility.

Enhanced Blood Flow and Circulation: 

The therapy stimulates angiogenesis, promoting better blood flow to the injured area and facilitating the body's natural healing processes.

Stem Cell Activation: 

SoftWave Therapy activates stem cells, encouraging them to migrate to the injured shoulder area for joint and tissue repair and regeneration.

A Comprehensive Approach to Healing

While SoftWave Therapy plays a vital role in pain relief and healing, we recognize that a holistic approach yields the best results. Alongside SoftWave Therapy, our treatment plans may include corrective exercises for strengthening and stretching, postural correction techniques, and chiropractic care at Camarata Chiropractic. These elements work in harmony to address the root causes of Shoulder Impingement Syndrome and provide long-term pain relief and improved function.
