[VIDEO] What Treatment Options Do You Offer for Shoulder Pain?
Dr. Mark Roczey:
Once we accurately diagnose somebody with a shoulder injury, we're going to use either chiropractic care, physical therapy, or acupuncture to get the best results. We find that a shoulder needs chiropractic care we're typically going to adjust the cervical spine because a multitude of the nerves from the neck go to the shoulder. We're also going to do some specific shoulder points that we've known to get good relief, better mobilization, and increased circulation to the muscles and tissue around the area. If it's a physical therapy case such as frozen shoulder, we're going to have our physical therapists mobilize it, stim, heat, which will allow it to increase it's range of motion. Then after they've gained full range of motion in the shoulder then we want to strengthen it so that it's stable and conditioned. Our acupuncturist is going to stick various needles inside acupressure points, which are going to make everyone feel good because that's what it does.
