Seminar participants will receive one free range of motion assessment on the joint that is the primary area of concern. Additional range of motion testing may be conducted at future appointments if you become a patient. Limit one assessment on one joint per patient.
As the most mobile joint in the body, the shoulder is responsible for a wide variety of functional movement in everyday life. From cooking and cleaning to typing and driving, the shoulder joint is often involved in tasks both large and small. As a result, suffering from chronic shoulder pain can be an ongoing nuisance at the very least, and a source of unending pain at the worst. Learn more about chronic shoulder pain and explore options for shoulder pain treatment in Richmond.
Shoulder pain refers to discomfort or pain in the area between the arm and the shoulder blade. The shoulder is a shallow ball and socket joint that consists of the clavicle, rotator cuff, humerus and shoulder blade. Four tendons make up the rotator cuff. Shoulder pain may be located in the joint itself, in the surrounding muscles and tendons or in the nearby bones.
If pain persists longer than six months, it is considered chronic. Chronic shoulder pain may feel like:
Losing any range of motion in the shoulder can create difficulties in everyday tasks. Finding individualized shoulder pain treatment in Richmond may help restore your desired lifestyle.
While the cause of shoulder pain is relatively clear in cases of injury or trauma, some causes are more difficult to identify than others. Without a thorough understanding of the root cause, treating shoulder pain can be frustrating and difficult.
Common causes of shoulder pain include:
Regardless of the cause of your shoulder pain, finding proper treatment and restoring your range of motion and your pain-free lifestyle is a top priority.

All of our treatment programs offer the potential for long-term, lasting results for multiple chronic conditions.
In many cases, chronic pain treatment involves solutions such as:
Unfortunately, in many cases, these options fail to address and improve the root of the problem. Cortisone shots only offer results for a limited time period, and most causes of chronic pain will not be fixed through icing and stretching alone. Many people are hesitant to invest the cost and recovery time associated with surgery, and even those who do may continue to suffer from chronic shoulder pain. Pain medication such as NSAIDs may mask the issue, but can also come with its own set of side effects and additional concerns.
Fortunately, there are other options. Chronic Care of Richmond offers shoulder pain treatment in Richmond that addresses the root of the pain instead of simply masking symptoms or creating temporary relief. With individualized treatments that don’t require extensive recovery periods or cause unwanted side effects, Chronic Care of Richmond works with the body’s natural healing processes.

Dr. Bryant Snyder is a leader in the field of non-drug, non-surgical chronic pain procedures. He has successfully managed thousands of patients suffering from chronic joint pain, peripheral neuropathy, and other chronic neurological and metabolic conditions.
Dr. Bryant Snyder graduated from Life University in Marietta, Georgia and has been in full-time practice since 2002. He regularly attends post-graduate educational seminars on topics such as regenerative medicine, functional neurology, functional medicine, spinal structure, and nutrition and also consults other doctors in his profession.
Dr. Snyder is a graduate of the American Functional Neurology Institute (AFNI). He is Board Certified in Integrative Medicine and is a diplomate in Whole Medical Systems from the American Association of Integrative Medicine.
Dr. Snyder and his wife of 20 years, Jenneane, have three beautiful children, Delaney, Chloe, and Crosby. They enjoy sports of all kinds as well as hiking, camping, and other outdoor activities.
Growing up Jenneane always got an “x” in that box on the report card for “Excessive talking”. Although her teachers may not have agreed at the time, that “x” that just reflected her love of people – being around them, talking to them, helping them. Her passion for people transitioned into a passion for little people as an elementary school teacher. She later moved on to work in a successful children’s franchise company in which she eventually became Vice President, where she helped people who wanted to bring enrichment education to children in their community. But everything changed when Bryant first learned about regenerative medicine and how it was helping people with chronic pain. He was in his 16th year of practice when they realized that by incorporating stem cells into the practice, they could not only help current patients, but they could also help the people in our community who are living with chronic pain and have lost hope. Those who have tried everything else and just want their life back! This was the only natural path for them to take. So, Jenneane quit her career, they both received an immense amount of training, they worked hard, and here they are – offering a safe, affordable, effective, non-invasive procedure for chronic pain to their community. When she is not working in or on their practice, she is with the people she is most passionate about – their three kiddos, Delaney, Chloe, and Crosby who keep them busy and happy. And, at the root of it all, everyone has the right to be happy. If you are living with chronic pain, you, too, can once again be truly happy! Jenneane is seeing the life-changing results in their patients and that, too, makes her happy.
