Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: This case study documents chronological improvements in pain levels and range of motion in a geriatric patient with adhesive capsulitis following chiropractic care.

Clinical Features: A 69-year-old female presented for chiropractic care with complete reduction in shoulder range of motion following a slow recovery from a humeral head fracture. In addition to shoulder pain, she was also experiencing significant cervical spine restriction.

Intervention and Outcome: After chiropractic care using both upper cervical specific and diversified techniques, the patient showed significant increase in all ranges of shoulder and cervical spine motion and decreased pain levels.

Conclusion: Improved outcomes in this geriatric patient could be associated with the correction of vertebral subluxation through chiropractic care.
