A case study suggests that chiropractic can provide significant relief of frozen shoulder syndrome (FSS). FSS is a painful condition that causes night pain and restricted shoulder range of motion.
To see if chiropractic could help, a case study evaluated the effects of chiropractic spinal adjustments in patients with FSS. After one to two months of chiropractic care, 98% of patients had significantly improved range of motion; 32% of patients had completely regained normal shoulder abduction; and the median pain score dropped from nine out of ten, to a 2 out of ten. This case study shows that chiropractic care is a viable option for patients suffering from frozen shoulder syndrome.
