Effective Shoulder Pain Treatment

Bay Shore Chiropractic Supports Shoulder Pain

According to experts, around 2-5 percent of the population will experience painful problems like frozen shoulder syndrome at some point in their lives. That makes shoulder pain a common occurrence and one that Dr. Selzer sees in our Bay Shore clinic on a regular basis.

Research Supports Chiropractic Therapy 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 stretches can sometimes help relieve the pain, so too can chiropractic adjustments.

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

The doctors found that almost all of the study participants fared very 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 participant reported an improvement of 50% or less, so reports like this demonstrate just how effective chiropractic care can be when it comes to lessening shoulder pain and improving quality of life.
