Why Consider Chiropractic Treatment For Frozen Shoulder

Why should you consider chiropractic treatment for frozen shoulders?

  1. Reduce aches and pain
  2. Improve your mobility
  3. Prevent shoulder problems in the future
Frozen shoulders occur when a joint in your shoulder has become stuck, causing limited mobility and pain. This happens when the surrounding tissues of the joints are inflamed and scarred. The scarring stops the joint from moving properly and is often painful when forced. The main goal of chiropractic treatment is to reduce pain and also improve mobility. This is why you should consider chiropractic treatment for frozen shoulders. Keep on reading to learn more!

Reduce Aches And Pain

Frozen shoulders can be painful when neglected. Some people experience worsening pains at night that can make sleep difficult.  The symptoms typically develop in three stages. First, there’s the freezing stage where any movement can cause pain. Then, the frozen stage is when the pain decreases but the shoulder becomes harder to move. The last stage is thawing, where the motion gradually improves. Each stage can last for months. A chiropractor's expertise is caring for the nervous system and musculoskeletal system, including the joints. They’re experienced in providing treatment to the joints through manipulation. This process helps to reduce the pain and also correct your body’s alignment.

Improve Your Mobility

Improve Your Mobility It can be very difficult to do your normal tasks for the day with a frozen shoulder. This is both because of the pain and the stiffness the inflammation causes. In the frozen stage, which can last between 4 and 12 months, the stiffness will only get worse. Neglecting your condition for this long can cause a negative impact on your job and quality of living.  A chiropractor can help you improve your range of motion through your sessions. Once the shoulder joint is manipulated properly, it can help restore the proper motion to your shoulders too. Aside from that, they will teach you simple exercises that you can do at home that slowly increase your mobility. 

Prevent Shoulder Problems In The Future

Although the exact cause of frozen shoulder is not clear, it’s more likely to happen if you have diabetes or had to immobilize your shoulder for a long period. Immobility can be caused if you have a broken arm, had a stroke, or are recovering from surgery.  A chiropractor can guide you on strengthening your shoulder joints and how to keep the joint moving. They are also experienced in treating other shoulder problems, so if you want to prevent aches and stiffness in the future, you can follow their recommendations. 

Key Takeaway

Having frozen shoulders can negatively affect your quality of life. You won’t be able to do your normal daily tasks and enjoy your hobbies due to the aching and lack of mobility.
