When most people think of chiropractors, the first thing that comes to mind is back pain. However, chiropractic care can be used to treat a variety of conditions from joint pain to migraines. When a patient comes in with complaints of pain in the shoulder and restricted motion in the joint, one possible diagnosis may be acromioclavicular (AC) joint injury. While it is often an injury that is common among athletes, it can happen to anyone. Fortunately, chiropractic is a very effective treatment.

Northwest Indiana is so densely packed with resources for seniors, that finding the best resources suited for you or a family member’s needs can seem overwhelming. On Tuesday, Life Care Center of Valparaiso looked to make things simpler for seniors and their families by hosting a health fair that gathered local leaders in senior health and service providers.
Life Care Center of Valparaiso is a 24-skilled nursing facility that focuses on speedy inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation programs. Their staff works closely to build strong relationships with their patients, often helping them find the information best suited to an individual’s specific needs. The health fair was their way of introducing other members of the Region’s healthcare community to their patients, families, and Valpo at large.
The shoulder bears the brunt of a lot of work even in day to day activity. When something goes wrong, it can dramatically impact a person’s quality of life. The joint itself is quite complex with a wide range of motion and that ability can become compromised due to overuse, injury, or age. The goal of the chiropractor is to keep the shoulder moving naturally and ensuring that it is pain free. Frozen shoulder syndrome is one common condition that affects the shoulder, limiting mobility and causing pain. Chiropractic is an effective treatment that helps patients regain range of motion and decrease or eliminate their pain.
People looking to save money on health care costs might consider skipping specialty benefits such as vision, dental or disability during open enrollment, the time each fall when millions of Americans, including Northwestern Indiana residents, select or switch their health benefits for 2019.
