Referred Shoulder Pain Study

Chiropractic Treatment for Referred Shoulder Pain

Sometimes shoulder pain can be referred from the neck (C5/C6 facet joints). Chiropractic "adjustments" have been used to treat this pain, however there are no studies to show whether this works or not.

The aim of this study is to determine if a series of "treatments" with a Mechanically Assisted Instrument (MAI) will help referred shoulder pain or not.

Patients will be randomized into two groups, one will receive a series of treatments with the MAI with an experienced chiropractor, the other will receive placebo treatments. All the treatments are free.
