Frozen Shoulder Pain

Affordable Sciatica Chiropractor in Terrace

Looking for Frozen Shoulder Pain Relief?

Your shoulder joint is one of the hardest working, most mobile joints in the body. If you experience pain and stiffness here, it can severely impact your day-to-day living, even making it hard to sleep or get dressed. The good news is that we can successfully help you get long-term adhesive capsulitis—“frozen shoulder”—pain relief.

Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) causes pain and stiffness in your shoulder, making it hard to lift or move your arm, or even sleep properly. Sometimes it develops after an injury, or it can develop from inflammation or poor ergonomics. Schedule an appointment with Terrace BC chiropractor, Dr. Davis Lindsay today for effective, drug-free shoulder pain relief treatment.

 

Frozen Shoulder Pain Causes

Chiropractic care can effectively and naturally relieve the underlying causes of frozen shoulder pain so that you can resume normal activity levels and enjoy complete wellness again. The two most common causes of shoulder pain are:

Custom Orthotics

Injury

Anything from a sports injury to a car accident injury and personal injuries can strain muscles and leave scar tissue that can impinge movement in the shoulder joint.

Spinal & Postural Screenings

Poor Posture

Poor posture habits can cause misalignments in the vertebrae that impact nerves serving the shoulder joint. This is particularly true of nerves pinched in the upper back and neck. Many people who sit at workstations with poor ergonomics, or who look down at their phones all day report a combination of headaches, neck pain and frozen shoulder as well!

Drug-Free Frozen Shoulder Pain Treatment

Dr. Davis Lindsay has been helping Terrace BC residents with natural frozen shoulder pain relief treatment options since 1998. After a thorough examination and diagnosis of your shoulder condition, he will design a treatment program that helps you regain comfortable full range of motion. They may suggest the following treatment modalities:

Chiropractic Adjustments

While painkillers can only cover up your pain, chiropractic care addresses the direct causes by correcting spinal misalignments pinching the nerves that control your shoulder. He will also coach you on how to maintain correct posture to avoid those nerves getting pinched again.

Corrective Exercise Coaching

Corrective exercises train your shoulder muscles and tissues to improve shoulder alignment, flexibility and rebalance muscle strength.

Soft Tissue Release

Frozen shoulder is often associated with scar tissue that restricts joint movement. Soft Tissue release involves gentle treatment to release scar tissue pain and improve flexibility. Soft Tissue release is usually a combination of focused laser and shockwave therapy plus gentle stretches
