Chiropractic Helps Shoulder Pain

Redondo Beach shoulder pain treatment and recoveryAccording to research, approximately 2-5 percent of the population will experience painful issues like frozen shoulder syndrome at some time in their lives. That makes shoulder pain a common problem and one that Dr. Vinick sees in our Redondo Beach office on a regular basis.

Research Shows Chiropractic Helps With Shoulder Pain

Generally speaking, this ailment is more common for people in their 40s, 50s, and 60s, and it tends to affect women more frequently than men. While ice, heat, and gentle stretching can often times help alleviate the pain, so too can chiropractic care.

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

The doctors found that nearly all of the study participants fared very well with chiropractic care. The study 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 reports like this show just how effective chiropractic can be when it comes to decreasing shoulder pain and improving quality of life.
