Chiropractic Treatment May Relieve Shoulder Pain

If you suffer from pain in your shoulder on a regular basis or have noticed a new twinge developing, you’re likely on the lookout for a new treatment that will eliminate your pain and help you regain your range of motion.

Even if you only have minor pain, the use of this new treatment could really make a difference. It’s called the Trigger Wheel and the Intracell and it is a real innovation from chiropractor care. Both of these devices are used for a wide variety of pain conditions on many muscles, but they can be used specifically on the shoulders for excellent results.

The Trigger Wheel consists of a metal wheel that spins on a plastic grip. The Intracell is made from several plastic rings that hang on a flexible rod with grips on both sides. The use of these devices significantly reduced the pain experienced by patients in initial trials and regain significant shoulder flexibility. Better yet, following regular treatments from a chiropractor, the patients noticed their symptoms didn’t come back.

Initially, the Trigger Wheel is used by being rolled across the shoulder blade area. This helps determine if there is an issue with the underlying muscles. Then the patient is instructed to stand against a well at which point the Intracell is rolled across the shoulder blade. Often, this creates more pain but after a few runs across the muscles, the pain will go away. Several treatment sessions are required before lasting results can be realized.
