1. WHEN SHOULD I SEE A CHIROPRACTOR?
Many patients seek chiropractic treatment for wellness care. Others, like seniors, find that treatment helps them to maintain mobility and good range of motion. Pain should never become a way of life, especially when there is qualified help available.There are many reasons to seek Chiropractic care. Work, accidents, sports injuries, household chores, back pain, even the stress of daily living can cause painful joint and spinal problems. Even if you do not have painful symptoms, chiropractic care can help you maintain healthy spine and joint function.
Here are some of the most common reasons why more than 4 million Canadians visit a Chiropractor each year:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Strains and sprains from daily activities
- Repetitive strain injuries
- Work and sports-related injuries
- Restricted movement in the back, shoulders, neck or limbs
- General health and well-being
3. WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM TREATMENT?
That depends on your condition. The length of time you have had the problem, your age and the degree of your disability all affect the length of your treatment. Your chiropractic doctor should tell you the extent of treatment recommended, and how long you can expect it to last.One of the main reasons people choose chiropractic is that they often get quick results. Individual cases vary and chronic conditions obviously need more treatment, but Workers’ Compensation Board studies show that people with low back pain get back to work much faster with chiropractic care.
You might also consider the benefits of regular chiropractic adjustments even when you feel healthy. Sometimes you won’t know you have a disorder of the neuromusculoskeletal system until it becomes acute and painful. So, just as you see your dentist to have your teeth checked and your optometrist for eye exams, regular visits to your chiropractor can catch related health conditions early, often preventing them from developing into major problems. Remember, your spine is every bit as susceptible to wear and tear as your teeth and your eyes so you should look after it.
You can make an appointment with Dr. Luciano Di Loreto by calling 647-873-4490. He is located at Fit for Life Wellness & Rehabilitation Centre inside the Vellore Medical Centre and Walk-In Clinic.

Patient: Male 35 Years of Age
I recently had a patient come see me in regards to shoulder pain. While bench pressing the patient felt a pull in his left shoulder. Not knowing what it was, he stopped exercising and took a break. He is in his mid 30’s and physically active. X-ray and Ultrasound came back unremarkable. No swelling in the shoulder. Only pain when reaching overhead and when bringing his arm across his body (adduction movement). What is happening, he asked? What would cause this type of shoulder pain, decreased motion and weakness.
Let’s talk about shoulder anatomy for a moment
Our shoulder region is made up of the arm bone (humerus), shoulder blade (scapula), and collarbone (clavicle) – see images below. The humerus attaches into the scapula. Furthermore, the scapula has a protruding bony area at the top of the arm bone called the acromion. The acromion attaches to the collarbone or clavicle. This joint or connection is known as the acromioclavicular joint (AC Joint). The AC joint is held together by various ligaments. Ligaments are soft tissues which connect bone to bone. The ligament between the acromion and clavicle is called the acromioclavicular ligament. Furthermore, you have two other ligaments which hold the clavicle down on the scapula. These are known as the coracoid-acromion ligament and coraco-clavicular ligament. Surrounding the bones and ligaments are muscles. The rotator cuff muscles are responsible for most movements in the shoulder. They help us to raise our arm over head, comb our hair and open a door.
What is the purpose of the AC Joint? The AC joint allows the ability to raise the arm above the head. This joint functions as a pivot point, acting to help with movement of the scapula resulting in a greater degree of arm movement.
How do the ligaments surrounding the shoulder sprain or tear?
The ligaments of the shoulder sprain or tear most commonly is one falls on an outstretched arm, falls on their shoulder or endures a sport injury (football, weightlifting, rugby, etc.).
How are AC Joints Graded?
AC joint separations are graded from mild to severe. The grading depends on which ligaments are sprained or torn. The mild type, grade 1, is a simple sprain of the AC ligaments. A grade two AC separation involves a tearing of the AC ligaments and a sprain of the coracoclavicular ligaments. A complete tear of the AC ligaments and the coracoclavicular ligaments is a grade three AC separation. This injury results in the bump on the shoulder which is known as a step defect.
Let us recap the grading of an AC joint injury:
- Grade 1 is a simple sprain to the AC joint
- Grade 2 involves rupture of the AC ligament
- Grade 3 rupture of both AC and CC ligaments which often results in a superior displacement.
- Grade 4 involves posterior displacement (movement backwards)
- Grade 5 superior (upwards) displacement, to a greater degree than grade 3, with an increase in coracoclavicular space by 3-5 times normal
- Grade 6 involves full rupture of both AC and CC ligaments with the clavicle being displaced downwards.
How do I treat an AC joint dislocation?
Ice, graston therapy, soft tissue therapy, taping techniques, exercises/rehabilitation as well as laser therapy helps to heal the A/C joint area. Grades 4-6 may require surgical intervention. If this injury is neglected and allowed to heal out of place this could increase the wear and tear on your joint causing you problems in the future. Make sure you seek medical attention, if you experience this injury.
What else can this injury be?
It is important to rule out other conditions, such as SLAP lesions (labrum injuries), shoulder impingement, tendonosis and/or tears.
