If you are suffering from pain and stiffness in your shoulder you should understand your treatment options.
Frozen shoulder can have a variety of causes and can be secondary to other conditions such as diabetes or heart disease.
In this condition, the capsule around the joint gets “sticky” and stiff. Moving creates pain, so the sufferer tends to move it less and less. Pretty soon the range of motion is restricted.
This condition can be made worse if you have a job which requires sitting at a desk, in front of a computer all day.
Everyone can benefit by range of motions exercises every day, that keep the shoulder joints moving freely.
If you already have this condition, don’t assume that you must suffer in silence, or that surgery and medication are your only options. Have a through examination.
As with any other field, chiropractic has benefitted from advances in knowledge and technology in recent years. A doctor of chiropractic can use the traditional conservative methods (such as increasing motion, prescribing exercises, and warming and cooling the area when indicated), as well as gentle, specific treatments to the area that do not require “cracking” or “popping”.
If you have shoulder problems don’t suffer needlessly. Explore your options and make a committment to getting on the road to health and better function.
