Chiropractic Can Decrease Shoulder Pain

Depew shoulder pain treatment and recoveryAccording to experts, approximately 5 percent of the population will experience painful disorders like frozen shoulder syndrome at some time in their lives. That makes shoulder pain a common problem and one that Dr. Palmer sees in our Depew office on a regular basis.

Research Supports Chiropractic Helps With Shoulder Pain

Usually, this condition is more common for people in their 40s, 50s, and 60s, and it tends to affect women more often than men. While ice, heat, and gentle stretches can sometimes help alleviate the discomfort, so too can chiropractic adjustments.

For instance, a study released in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine looked at 50 people with frozen shoulder who were given chiropractic care. The length of care varied from 11 days to 51 days, with 28 days being the average.

The doctors found that almost all of the study participants fared extremely well with chiropractic care. The authors found:

8 of the subjects reported 50-75 percent improvement
25 indicated improvement ranging from 75- 90 percent
1 participant had complete resolution of their frozen shoulder pain

Only one participant reported an improvement of 50 percent or less, so studies like this demonstrate just how beneficial chiropractic care can be when it comes to decreasing shoulder pain and improving quality of life.
