Burke, Virginia Frozen Shoulder TreatmentHow Dr. Robert J. Zapf can help
Dr. Robert J. Zapf sees a wide variety of health issues in our Burke, Virginia chiropractic office, and one problem we see is frozen shoulder. Frozen shoulder generally consists of three stages:
- the freezing stage which is when the pain sets in and motion starts to become limited,
- the frozen stage as the shoulder becomes stiffer and harder to move, and
- the thawing stage which is when the pain and stiffness begin to lessen.
While medications and injections are a common medical treatment, Dr. Robert J. Zapf finds that chiropractic can also help. The scientific literature confirms that a non-invasive approach can work.
