As your trusted chiropractor in Lake Worth and all surrounding cities, we understand that living with this type of pain can make everyday activities become huge obstacles and keep you from living to your full potential.
Because the shoulder and neck area are essential for completing daily activities, it only makes sense that common injuries and chronic pain affecting these areas must be taken seriously.

Diagnosis & Treatment
Our experienced chiropractor in Lake Worth will first complete a comprehensive chiropractic examination to determine the root cause of your pain. Once we have concluded that you have a neck or shoulder injury, we may use a combination of treatment methods to help you find pain relief. These treatment methods may include the application of heat or ice packs to the area, massage therapy, gentle chiropractic manipulation designed to help the affected areas return to maximum functionality and gentle stretching and strengthening exercises that can be completed at home.
Can Chiropractic Manipulation Help with Frozen Shoulder?
Frozen shoulder is usually characterized by stiffness, pain and limited range of movement in the shoulder due to an overuse injury or complications from other medical conditions like diabetes, thyroid disorder or a stroke. As the tissues around the joint begin to stiffen, scar tissue will form, making even the slightest shoulder movements become more difficult and painful. Through chiropractic manipulation, our team will develop a treatment plan that will provide you with the pain relief you have been looking for while also helping to build muscle and increase your range of motion. These steps, combined with at home exercises, can also help to speed your healing process and reduce painful inflammation surrounding the affected areas as well.
