almost four years ago I awoke with the worst kind of pain I have ever felt in my shoulder. So I go to the ER, they give me a shot of cortizone and tell me to make an appointment with my primary doctor. My doctor told me I have "frozen shoulder". He gave me a "pully" to take home and workout with it, but the pain was so bad that any kind of movement would "kill me" after years of going to the "bone"doctor and accupunture, massage, chiroprator (not sure of spelling) getting cortizone shots every 4-6 weeks, taking pain killers and atidepressants. This went on untill I made an appiontment with a Tribal Doctor earlier this year in March!!!!! When I walked into her office she could tell I was in a great deal of pain. She asked me my history and all that kinfd of stuff, after, she had me lie down and she found that one of my upper ribs was pushed up against my shoulder bone and did a little manipulation an "WOW" she pushe it back into place and ever since then I've benn getting better, Oh yeah, I was also getting real bad migrains and now those have gane too!!

  • Great you found someone who understood how ribs out of alignment can cause such pain. Some chiros look for them, some don't. I have found them often to be a primary cause in some cases of back and shoulder pain.
