Shoulder pain. Done chiropractor treatment. Hard to lie down and get up. What is your opinion?

I have a pain in my shoulder constantly. My chiropractor says I have a tilted rib and believed he moved it slightly and that I should lay on my back on the floor with legs on a chair for 15 min. A day. This feels good but so so hard for me to get down and back up. I am 70 and not too agile. What is your opinion, and any other exercise where I don t have to get on the floor. Thanks, Gayle

Hi thanks for the query.
The complaints of shoulder pain and the tilted rib could not be correlated. Lying on your back with legs on chair is comfortable to your lower back pain and not to the shoulder pain. i suggest you to visit local orthopaedician and get his opinion regarding the shoulder pain. There are different exercise for shoulder pain which can be learnt after the problem is identified.
