Shoulder & Knee Pain Treatment Center
Shoulder and Knee Pain Treatment in Matawan, NJ
Dr. Sharon Barnum: A & A Chiropractic
Shoulder pain is treated without surgery or medication at our facility using gentle chiropractic adjustments combined with other non-invasive modalities including electric muscle stimulation
The shoulder joint can shift out of alignment causing the muscles and ligaments to pull differently. This leads to muscle spasms, inflammation and pain that may not go away on its own. Dr. Sharon Barnum will provide gentle adjustments to the shoulder to distract the joint or shift it forward or backward, depending on symptoms. She will also adjust the spine to bring balance to the body and improve posture. By having the neck and upper back adjusted, it will also help relieve shoulder discomfort.
Dr. Barnum also provides other treatments that effectively help reduce shoulder pain. All of our therapies work with the muscles and tissues to reduce inflammation and allow the body to stay aligned. These treatments will also help release stubborn knots from tight or damaged muscles and tissues.
These treatments include:
- Electric Muscle Stimulation
- Ultrasound Therapy
- Moist Heat
- Myofascial Therapy
- Rehabilitation Exercises
- Isometric Stretching
Chiropractic care can help with knee pain
Osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis in the knee, is caused by the gradual degradation of the cartilage in the joint. A deformity can lead to arthritis in the knee, but more often, obesity or excess weight, or repetitive stress injuries from sports are the culprits. Symptoms include pain, swelling, stiffness or locking joints.
The knee is a joint that relies heavily on ligaments and muscles for stability. When pain is perceived as coming from the knee, all the anatomical components need to be examined. In addition to the knee joint, the low back, pelvis, hip, ankle and foot need to be evaluated due to the direct influence they have on the knee, and vice versa.
How we treat patients with knee pain
Each patient that visits our facility is unique, therefore the course of treatment recommended by Dr. Barnum will vary from patient to patient. Most commonly, Dr. Barnum will utilize specific chiropractic manipulation techniques to areas of restricted movement in the knee and surrounding joints. These manipulations can increase movement, improve function and reduce pain.
Inflammation is also reduced with ice and a customized rehabilitation and exercise program will be provided by Dr. Barnum. This individualized program will include rehabilitative exercises to complete at our facility, as well as the patient’s place of residence.
“Absolutely great services”
Came here to get my DOT medical examination and it was a quick appointment so I could get back to work !!
I’ve had lower back issues from a herniated disc for about 7 years. I went to see Dr. Barnum about 6 weeks ago after not getting the results I wanted from other chiropractors. Dr. Barnum is very thorough and detailed in her assessment and care. I love the fact that she stresses preventive care (strengthening and stretching) along with medical treatments. I haven’t felt this pain free in years. She is easy to get ahold of and even made sure there was another doctor available when she was on vacation. I will continue to see Dr. Barnum and highly recommend her services. I couldn’t not be happier.
Dr Barnum is outstanding doctor. Easy to talk to. She really cares about her patients. One of my issues was that I could not move my neck. Within a a few weeks with Dr Barnum I had full range of motion. I highly recommend Dr Barnum.
Great place to get your CDL medical done. Very nice woman at the front desk and the Doctor is terrific. Will definitely go back again.
I have used Dr. Barnum twice. She is top notch in her profession. I have used her twice for 2 different incidents. I did try someone else but found myself coming back to her. I have found myself referring others to her. Hopefully will not have a need for. Her again tho.
For years I had bad stress pains running all along my back. After going to see Dr. Barnum I don’t get my bad stress aches anymore! Very friendly and knowledgeable staff, and I look forward to going!
Came to the office for my DOT psychical for first time and didn’t know what to expect. I made my appointment over the phone with Kathy who was very nice.Dr Sharon Barnum was kind very professional. I definitely recommend this place.
I originally sent into see Dr Sharon for my physical for my CDL, after dealing with her and the professional treatment I received. I noticed that She is a Chiropractor , after talking with her about a 3 month treatment with another chiropractor for a injury to my neck and lower back and being in pain for years ,we agreed to give her a shot after 3 visits I’m a believer and I will never go elsewhere , Kathy at the front desk is amazing to deal with .If you have any issues this is the the only place for treatment, thank you for the amazing experience see you Friday.
Dr. Barnum is very nice, very helpful and kind and friendly. She is like family. I would highly recommend.
