Chiropractic Helps Shoulder Pain

Woburn shoulder pain treatment and recoveryAccording to experts, around 5 percent of the population will experience painful issues like frozen shoulder syndrome at some time in their lives. That makes shoulder-related pain a common problem and one that Dr. Ellis sees in our Woburn practice on a regular basis.

Research Shows Chiropractic Helps With Shoulder Pain

Usually, this issue is more prevalent 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 relieve the pain, so too can chiropractic.

For instance, a study published in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine looked at 50 people with frozen shoulder who were given chiropractic care. The duration of care varied from 11 days to 51 days, with 28 days being the average.

The researchers found that almost all of the patients 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 studies like this demonstrate just how effective chiropractic can be when it comes to decreasing shoulder pain and increasing quality of life.
