A Chiropractor therapy may be too much too soon(if you get my drift). It was for my situation and I have been lucky enough to find a Physiotherapist for massage and decompression of the spine; Which is often being constantly compressed by the contracting or spasm of the muscles throughout my back.
I hope you find comfort
Here is a link to my floor exercises for decompressing the spine that I often do to keep things in check. sites.google.com/site/beaux...
The most important aspect of Massage therapy is to learn how to relax muscle tissue, and to establish an order (in domino effect) so that you can relax specific muscles when they suddenly go into unwanted painful spasm.
For my situation, Massage therapy is just as important as gentle exercise and a brisk walk.
I have the same in my left shoulder . My left arm is where the pd freezes it and tremors and rigidity. Gp had put me down for steroid jab in meantime take ibuprofen. But went to Pilates yesterday (used to go but hadn’t been for a few years ) and my shoulder afterwards was much much better and had more movement. It is painful again but will do exercises from Pilates and see what happens.
Yes I also agree with physiotherapy and persisting with the exercises they give you. I had a frozen shoulder years ago before PD diagnosis. Since diagnosis it has partly returned and my shoulder felt stiff and painful. With physio and special exercises, I've regained suppleness and it doesnt feel so uncomfortable. It's still an ongoing thing for me.
