  Title Resolution of frozen shoulder in a 68-year-old male following chiropractic care: A case study
Journal Ann Vert Sublux Res. 2020 Jul;2020():9-102
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To describe the outcomes following chiropractic care on a man with frozen shoulder and vertebral subluxation.

Clinical Features: One patient with previously diagnosed frozen shoulder complicated by cervical and glenohumeral degenerative joint disease (DJD) along with vertebral subluxations.

Intervention and Outcome: Chiropractic care directed at removing subluxations of the spine and upper extremity in conjunction with passive rehabilitation. The patient showed an increase in range of motion of the left shoulder, measured using a single hinge goniometer. The patient also experienced a decrease in pain, recorded using a variation of the standard VAS pain scale.

Conclusion: Improvements in subjective and objective findings were noted while receiving chiropractic and rehabilitative care. Further investigation with a larger sample size over a longer period of time must be conducted to confirm a relationship between frozen shoulder and chiropractic care with functional rehabilitation.
