Chiropractic Helps Shoulder Pain

Henderson, NV shoulder pain treatment and recoveryAccording to experts, about 5 percent of the population will suffer from painful disorders like frozen shoulder syndrome at some point in their lives. That makes shoulder pain a common problem and one that Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda sees in our Henderson, NV practice on a regular basis.

Usually, this condition 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 relieve the discomfort, so too can chiropractic adjustments.

For example, a study published in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine looked at 50 patients with frozen shoulder who received chiropractic care. The duration of care ranged from 11 days to 51 days, with 28 days being the average.

The authors found that nearly all of the patients fared extremely well with chiropractic care. The authors 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 of the original 50 reported an improvement of 50 percent or less, so reports like this demonstrate just how beneficial chiropractic care can be when it comes to decreasing shoulder pain and improving quality of life.

Let Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda help you decrease your pain by contacting our Henderson, NV office and scheduling your appointment today.
