How Chiropractic Helps with Shoulder Capsulitis

Chiropractic as an Ally for Shoulder Capsulitis

Shoulder capsulitis, commonly known as frozen shoulder, is a condition that restricts movement due to pain and stiffness. Although it can be extremely debilitating, chiropractic offers a promising approach to relieving and potentially reversing this condition.

What is Shoulder Capsulitis?

Capsulitis is characterized by inflammation of the connective tissue capsule surrounding the shoulder joint. This inflammation causes a thickening and tightening of the tissues around the joint, severely limiting movement and causing considerable pain.

Stages of Shoulder Capsulitis

  1. Freezing Stage: Pain and limitation of movement begin.
  2. Frozen Stage: The shoulder becomes stiffer and difficult to move.
  3. Defrosting Stage: Pain and stiffness gradually decrease.

Causes of Capsulitis

  • Injuries and Trauma: Such as fractures or surgeries that immobilize the shoulder.
  • Medical Conditions: Including diabetes and thyroid diseases.
  • Extended Inactivity: Due to pain or recovery from an operation.

Symptoms of Capsulitis

  • Acute Pain: Which can radiate to the arm.
  • Rigidity: That limits daily activities such as dressing or reaching for objects.
  • Movement Reduction: Affecting the rotation and elevation of the arm.

How Chiropractic Offers Care for Capsulitis

Complete Evaluation

A chiropractor will begin with a detailed examination to determine the specific cause of the capsulitis. He or she will review your health history and perform specific tests to identify possible vertebral subluxations that could be affecting the shoulder.

Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments focus on:

  • Restore Mobility: By manipulating the shoulder joint and surrounding areas to reduce stiffness.
  • Ease the pain: Adjusting the spine and other joints to improve overall function and reduce inflammation.
  • Optimize Nervous System Function: Correcting vertebral subluxations to facilitate optimal nerve communication.

Personalized Care

Each care plan is unique and may include:

  • Tips on Posture and Ergonomics: To prevent recurrences and improve daily function.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Capsulitis
