Condition: Frozen Shoulder
Medical Name: Adhesive Capsulitis
What is it?: Pain and stiffness in the shoulder, usually from the capsule thickening in the shoulder joint. There usually is significant reduction in the range of motion, with the worst motion usually raising the arm to the side (abduction). The etiology of adhesive capsulitis isn’t known, but immobility and having diabetes increases your chances of getting it.
Typical treatment: Range of motion exercises, massage
How we treat it: Advanced soft tissue treatment to the capsule and muscles of the shoulder. This condition can be very difficult to treat, and requires a lot of time spent on each spot to try to release the area. We then will dry needle the muscles, and do specific exercises to increase flexibility and strength.
