An older patient fell while doing yard work injuring his shoulder. He rated the pain 8/10 and his pain was waking him up multiple times a night. He had seen another chiropractor, but did not get any relief.
Instead of just looking at the shoulder, I tested his vestibular system. The vestibular system is responsible for balance and was not working correctly since he fell.
We did an vestibular exercise called the BBQ roll, electronic stimulation and 5 chiropractic visits his pain was gone in a week and a half. Just because there is pain one area of the body doesn’t mean that is the cause. It’s fun too see results so quickly.
