CLA Update: Chiropractic Improves Frozen Shoulder Syndrome

August 1, 2014

Night pain and limited movement in the shoulder are two common symptoms of frozen shoulder syndrome (FSS). Although it only affects roughly two to five percent of the population, this ailment is more common among those that suffer from Parkinson’s disease, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and many more.

A recent study has shown that chiropractic care can significantly improve the pain and lack of movement FSS patients suffer from. Typically, when FSS patients seek medical help, they undergo invasive surgeries, get potentially harmful steroid shots and take anti-inflammatory drugs which can cause issues with their stomachs. Unsurprisingly, the natural and non-invasive care a chiropractor can provide is much safer.

In the study, 50 patients with FSS received targeted adjustments that were high velocity, but low amplitude. After a period of 28 days, most patients reported an improvement in pain by 78 percent. On a pain scale out of 10, participants reported pain dropping from a nine to a two.

Perhaps more importantly, the majority of patients recovered movement in their shoulders. Sixteen people that participated in the study were able to move their shoulders normally, 25 showed significant improvements of 75 to 90 percent of proper movement and eight had an improvement of 50 to 75 percent. With these outstanding numbers, it’s safe to say that chiropractic care for frozen shoulder syndrome is a safe, non-invasive way to improve painful symptoms.

Subluxation causes nerve interference which can significantly affect movement and increase pain. The bottom line in chiropractic care is this — if you’re alive and living with painful and restrictive subluxations, you’re better off alive without nerve interference.
