Pain is often caused by the muscles that surround the shoulder joint. Frozen shoulder is caused by inflammation within the shoulder joint and can lead to severe restriction of movement in the long term. Shoulder pain presents as soreness, tension and/or stiffness in the shoulder and shoulder girdle region. Chiropractors treat shoulder pain using a package of care that may include manual therapies, exercise, therapeutic advice and postural advice.
