Frozen Shoulder

Debbie is a kind, vibrant woman who radiates joy and the love she has for her beautiful family. One day, she reached behind herself to close the car door and was overcome by excruciating pain in her left shoulder. From that point forward she was never able to reach behind her back without the agonizing shoulder pain that would sometimes travel into her neck and arm. She lost complete range of motion in her left shoulder, leaving her unable to even dress herself and lessening her quality of life. “I soon found myself unable to sleep at night because I simply could not get comfortable. The discomfort was truly impacting my life in a negative way.”

Debbie was suffering from a severe case of frozen shoulder. The medical advice she received was to increase Advil in order to reduce inflammation and they would re-check her in six months. “I was reaching my wits end as I did not want to have surgery, nor did I want to continue using Advil on a daily basis.” Once Debbie’s husband began treatment at Via Vitae Chiropractic, he encouraged her to see Dr. Babin for her frozen shoulder but she was hesitant. “I was uncertain if chiropractic care could help my shoulder pain. In addition, I had previously had a cervical fusion and I wasn’t sure if this care would work for me now.” After learning that Dr. Babin uses a different approach to chiropractic care called upper cervical chiropractic, a gentle and specific technique, Debbie decided to give it a try.

After only six appointments, her range of motion was much improved, she started sleeping at night, began dressing herself, and was able to stop taking Advil altogether. “My treatment results were amazing! In three months, my neurological scan was much improved. The pain was gone!” Debbie is now pain-free and is happily telling everyone she knows about the life-changing beneEits of upper cervical chiropractic care. Debbie loves being a practice member at Via Vitae Chiropractic. When asked about her experience, she said that “VVC is very high tech and professional. Dr. Babin and his staff made me feel so welcome and comfortable that I was excited to begin my journey of healing there. Dr. Babin is the most caring and passionate doctor I have ever met. He truly believes in his practice and explains to you exactly how upper cervical chiropractic works.”
