This procedure is also used for frozen shoulder, hip, knee, elbows, also. It has been around since the 1930’s done primarily by orthopedists and osteopaths, in the mid-1980’s, specialty trained chiropractors starting utilizing their knowledge of spinal and joint biomechanics to help patients with these various conditions. This procedure is done primarily for patients who have failed or have hit a plateau with conservative care. Dr. Dhesi was one of the first chiropractors in Northern California to get trained and do this procedure. He currently performs this procedure for selected patients at local centers.
