Effective Shoulder Pain Treatment
According to experts, roughly 5 percent of the population will suffer from painful conditions like frozen shoulder syndrome at some time in their lives. That makes shoulder-related pain a common occurrence and one that Florida Wellness & Rehabilitation Centers sees in our Tallahassee, FL office on a regular basis.
Research Shows Chiropractic Helps With Shoulder Pain
Generally, this ailment 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 often times help alleviate the pain, so too can chiropractic care.
For example, a study published in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine looked at 50 patients with frozen shoulder who were given chiropractic care. The duration of care ranged from 11 days to 51 days, with 28 days being the average.
The researchers found that nearly all of the patients fared very well with chiropractic care. Here are the results:
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 patient reported an improvement of 50 percent or less, so reports like this show just how beneficial chiropractic care can be when it comes to decreasing shoulder pain and increasing quality of life.
