Frozen Shoulder

Frozen Shoulder Physiotherapy Treatment

Frozen shoulder is a painful and usually severe disorder. Although there is no clear cause of frozen shoulder, there are effective treatments that work for the majority of patients. Here, we examine the stages of frozen shoulder and highlight physiotherapy treatments for the condition as well as frozen shoulder preventative techniques.

What is Frozen Shoulder?

Adhesive capsulitis, another name for frozen shoulder, is a painful condition that causes stiffness and loss of movement in the shoulder. The complicated shoulder joint, sacrifices stability for ranges in movement. The tissues around the joint become swollen when a person has a frozen shoulder. The capsule refers to the tissues that encircle and stabilise the joint. The capsule becomes swollen in the frozen shoulder, which results in scarring and tightness of the joints, which causes discomfort and mobility limitations.

Symptoms of Frozen Shoulder

Patients often report new shoulder aches and movement restrictions, but there is typically no traumatic, infectious, or inflammatory incident. Usually, the pain around the shoulder is often severe at night.

Frozen Shoulder Physiotherapy Treatment

Based on the stage and symptom presentation of a frozen shoulder, physiotherapy is used as a treatment. Patient education, pain management, and easy stretching exercises are all part of early intervention. To keep shoulder range of motion within a pain-free range, these workouts include particular shoulder mobility movements.

Later phases of physiotherapy treatments may include additional stretches, posture exercises, strengthening exercises, and a pain management approach. Acupuncture, heat, ultrasound treatment, and manual therapy are some examples of pain management methods.

Additionally, a home workout program is advised to keep the shoulders strong and mobile during the various stages. Additionally beneficial for preserving pain-free shoulder mobility is hydrotherapy.
