According to research, approximately 2-5 percent of the population will experience painful disorders like frozen shoulder syndrome at some time in their lives. That makes shoulder pain a common occurrence and one that Dr. Bogan sees in our Jenks office on a regular basis.
Generally, 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 stretches can sometimes help relieve the pain, so too can chiropractic.
For instance, a study published in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine looked at 50 patients with frozen shoulder who received chiropractic care. The duration of care varied from 11 days to 51 days, with 28 days being the average.
The researchers found that nearly 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 percent or less, so reports like this show just how effective chiropractic care can be when it comes to decreasing shoulder pain and improving quality of life.
