Don’t Let Shoulder Pain Slow You Down
The Process Of Alleviating Specific Pain
If you have a frozen shoulder, just rubbing or icing the area may help temporarily but the symptoms will probably persist. That’s because, in some ways, you could say that chiropractic care is a bit like building a house. Certain things have to happen in a particular order in order for everything to stand strong and work together correctly. When building a house, if you tried to build your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually might even collapse. If you tried to build your roof before the walls were ready, the roof certainly wouldn’t hold for long. These concepts apply to your body, as well, and chiropractic care addresses many common reasons why people experience pain and other health issues. If something is not right with your body’s foundation, than that needs to be addressed before true health can be achieved. At Relief Care Chiropractic in Delaware, OH, we address your whole body in order to address specific symptoms.
The Phases Of Holistic Shoulder Pain Relief
There are three phases to effectively reducing pain in the long term through chiropractic therapy. The first phase is immediate relief care. If you are in pain when you come into our Delaware chiropractic office, our first objective is to help you reduce pain and start feeling better as soon as possible. Depending on the severity of the underlying condition causing your pain, it is typical for a patient to need chiropractic care or adjustments two to three times per week for up to 12 weeks.
The second phase after helping you immediately feel less shoulder pain is to plan for corrective and restorative care. During the corrective phase of chiropractic care, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal, which helps prevent further injury or pain. The goal of corrective or restorative chiropractic care is to help bring your body back to 100% functioning, in your shoulder and other areas that are indirectly triggering a frozen shoulder or other pain. It’s typical to need chiropractic care or adjustments about four to eight times per month for six months to two years, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.
The final phase of care once your body is healed is wellness care. When your body has fully healed and you are no longer experiencing back pain or other pain symptoms, it is important to come in for periodic chiropractic adjustments to avoid further problems in the future. Usually, this phase of chiropractic care only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor one to four times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.
