How Richart Functional Medicine can help

​Richart Functional Medicine sees a wide variety of health issues in our Arizona and Illinois chiropractic practice, and one problem we see is frozen shoulder. Frozen shoulder generally consists of three stages:

  • the freezing stage which is when the pain sets in and motion starts to become limited,
  • the frozen stage as the shoulder becomes stiffer and harder to move, and
  • the thawing stage which is when the pain and stiffness begin to lessen.

While medications and injections are a common medical treatment, Richart Functional Medicine finds that chiropractic may also help. The scientific literature confirms that a non-invasive approach can work.

Arizona and Illinois Chiropractic Care for Frozen Shoulder

As reported in the literature, chiropractic has been found to possibly  alleviate frozen shoulder symptoms for some people, offering a complete recovery from the pain and stiffness that may come with this particular condition. In others, people with frozen shoulder have reported significant relief, ranging from 50 to 90 percent improvement.
