WHAT ELSE CAN I DO TO HELP WITH MY SHOULDER PAIN? It’s still the prevailing opinion that chiropractic care is for patients with low back pain. However, there is much research suggesting that manipulation is effective for a variety of other conditions.
This particular study found that the addition of manipulation to a standard course of care for shoulder pain was more effective. In my office, the addition of unique soft tissue approaches like NMR and Graston to more completely effect the soft tissues (fascia, muscles, ligaments, tendons) means that shoulder pain will be a thing of the past for most patients. And we rarely need to use anything beyond some simple elastic tubing home exercises for recovery.
