What Is A Frozen Shoulder?

 

Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, occurs when the shoulder capsule thickens and tightens, restricting movement in your shoulder joint. This can lead to pain, stiffness, and limited range of motion in your shoulder.

Causes Of Frozen Shoulder

Frozen shoulder causes can include injury, overuse, or underlying conditions like rotator cuff tears. Treatment for frozen shoulder may include stretching exercises, shoulder exercises, and steroid injections to reduce pain and improve shoulder motion. In some cases, shoulder arthroscopy may be necessary to diagnose and treat the condition.

Indications Of Treatment For A Frozen Shoulder: The Signs And Symptoms 

The main symptoms of a frozen shoulder include pain and stiffness in the shoulder that makes it hard to move. The pain may be constant and worse at night. A frozen shoulder happens when the shoulder becomes still for a long period, such as after a shoulder injury.

  • Weakness
  • Numbness
  • Spasms 
  • Joint clicking

Physiotherapy For Frozen Shoulder

Hear at Head2Toe our physical therapist can diagnose a frozen shoulder through a physical exam. From this to then treat the frozen shoulder, they will create a personalised treatment plan which may include exercises to help stretch the shoulder while shoulder manipulation may also be used.

If you are experiencing pain in your shoulder and have a limited range of motion, it is important to seek medical attention to determine if you have developed a frozen shoulder, where then the appropriate treatment plan can be put together.

Dr. Nayna Boohla was incredible adjusting my twisted back and hips after a fall I took in the rain on holiday. She is very caring and incredibly knowledgable at chiropractic and Accupuncture. And only because of her I could continue my trip for another 3 weeks.

Yvonne is a miracle worker! I was in pain for months with lower back pain and nothing was working--went to Yvonne at Head to Toe and over time she has made my pain manageable and most days non-existent! She listened to me and we worked out a plan that included me getting back to the gym and getting off pain killers, and so far its working out brilliantly! I can actually move again and enjoy my life which frankly, didn't seem possible 6 months ago...I cannot recommend Yvonne highly enough-Thank you!

I had my first session yesterday! After years of injuring my back while working I’ve had masseuses refuse to touch it out of fear of damaging my back even more. I’ve had numbness in my arm, terrible sleeping patterns and my lower back locks up very often. Out of fear, I was nervous to try acupuncture but Nayna was so calm and made the process very relaxing. She took all the time she needed, clicking and relieving my back, neck, arms, pelvis and legs. I slept like a baby last night for the first time in ages! My back was so inflamed and I can now feel the instant relief after going only once. It is costly but so so worth it (in my opinion the expense of going to many cheaper places adds up and doesn’t have the same effect). I’m able to go about my day pain free and I’m not even taking any pain killers or anti inflammatories, I feel amazing! Thank you Nayna X

I went to Barry Murphy Mid April for physical therapy treatment due to ongoing pain in my left hip and lower back brought on from running. In short Barry was fantastic. Not only did he help alleviate symptoms he also gave me the tools and skills to ensure that I wont end up in the same place again. Thanks to Barry, I now have a much better understanding of my body and how it works and how to take care of it. Finally he's a lovely guy and completely put me at my ease.
