Commonly mis-diagnosed by other medical practitioners it is important that hands-on intervention such as physical therapy is sought immediately after a diagnosis or if you suspect you may have frozen shoulder.
As a physical therapist, you are in safe hands if you suffer from frozen shoulder. Medically referred to as ‘adhesive capsulitis’, we specialise in resolving muscle and connective tissue strains and pains. Frozen shoulder is one of the conditions that can respond brilliantly to our specialised techniques. Stretching alone will not resolve the condition. The deep fascia within and surrounding the joint is dense connective tissue, creating strong, thick adhesions. When you try to move your shoulder into normal ranges of motion, these adhesions try to separate but cannot, creating a strong resistance to your attempted movements, invoking lots of pain in the process. This fascia needs to be gently and slowly restored to its normal resting position. Until these adhesions are reduced you will continue to suffer reduced range of motion and pain.
There are many causes of frozen shoulder and it’s important that you visit a practitioner who will complete a thorough history taking and examination to correctly eliminate or diagnose the condition.
Many factors must be considered. Emotional trauma can be a major cause and must be discussed or eliminated during the consultation. At Harbour clinic we provide you with the time to discuss your condition fully, treatments are never rushed, we do everything possible to ensure you have being attended to professionally and thoroughly.
