Hey! I am a basketball player and I frequently suffer from shoulder pain. I have developed swelling in my right-hand shoulder. My trainer said that I am having shoulder tendinitis. He also said that a mild tendinitis will heal on its own. So I kept it untreated. Yesterday, I jammed my finger when I tried to intercept a pass. My finger isn't fractured but it has swelled up and is really painful. I often consult my regular GP for recurring shoulder pain. I visited his clinic today too. But he suggested undergoing chiropractic treatment from a clinic in Mississauga. I have heard about chiropractic treatment before but never knew that it treats jammed finger. I am planning to undergo the treatment tomorrow. Is there anyone here who had undergone a chiropractic treatment for a jammed finger? How was your experience? Can anyone share the details of this procedure? How long will it take to recover from this procedure? Please share your insights. Any advice is highly appreciated!
Sure, a mild tendinitis might heal on its own. However if the cause of it is not addressed, then it might not heal, i.e. if there is a constant aggravation.
Personally I have never heard of a chiropractic treatment for a jammed finger, however this is not exactly my area of expertise.
