Frozen Shoulder? How Chiropractic Treatment Can Melt the Pain Away

Have you ever felt like your shoulder was stuck? Like it just didn’t want to move anymore? 

That’s called a frozen shoulder. It’s a problem that can make you feel uncomfortable for sure. But don’t worry! We have good news. Chiropractic treatment can help.

What is a Frozen Shoulder?

Think of a frozen shoulder like a stuck door that no longer opens and closes easily. That’s what happens to your shoulder. You find it hard to move it up, down, or around. 

Frozen shoulder usually happens in three stages.

1. Freezing Stage (Painful Stage): This is the initial stage of the condition, typically lasting between 6 weeks to 9 months. Here, you’ll start to feel a gradual increase in pain. As the pain worsens, your shoulder loses range of motion. Even simple tasks like reaching for an object or dressing yourself can become painful.

2. Frozen Stage (Adhesive Stage): This stage usually lasts 4 to 6 months. The hallmark of this stage is stiffness. It might be challenging to perform daily activities.

3. Thawing Stage (Recovery Stage): Lasting anywhere from 6 months to 2 years, this is where the light at the end of the tunnel starts to shine. During the thawing stage, the stiffness in your shoulder begins to decrease.

Why Does Frozen Shoulder Happen?

Some people might get a frozen shoulder because they didn’t use it for a long time. This could be because of an injury or after surgery. Other people might get it because of diseases like diabetes or heart disease. Sometimes, we don’t know why it happens.
