Frozen Shoulder is Very Painful

Obviously I have heard of chiropractors before, but I honestly did not know much about them. I figured the only people who were patients of a chiropractic doctor would be those who had back issues or were involved in a car accident. I had no idea that they are able to treat so many other things, but that changed when I was diagnosed with frozen shoulder. That is another thing I really did not know a whole lot about, even though I have heard of the term before. I ended up going to a Huntington chiropractor after my endocrinologist referred me to him.

My endo doctor is the one who explained exactly what frozen shoulder is and why it is so difficult to treat, and he told me that he would not be able to do anything for me once the diagnosis was made. That is when he recommended that I see a chiropractor, who would work with my physical therapist to make sure that I was having everything done to help me with this very painful condition. I went into the chiropractor’s office not knowing very much at what was going to happen, but I walked out feeling very comfortable and optimistic.

I did require twice a week physical therapy, and that was probably the most painful experience I have ever been through. The chiropractor also did adjustments at least once a week, and I had massage therapy as well. That absolutely felt the best, but I knew that it was still an integral part of my healing. Because of the chiropractic care that I received during this time, I was able to handle the frozen shoulder more than what I would have been able to without any kind of therapy or chiropractic care at all. Even though I no longer have it, I am still having adjustments done at least once every couple months because I just feel so much better when I do!
