Frozen Shoulder Physiotherapy | Move Physiotherapy Fremantle
Have you been diagnosed with a ‘frozen shoulder?’. Perhaps you are experiencing long term pain in the shoulder and are simply worried about your potential diagnosis.
A ‘Frozen Shoulder’, or scientifically named ‘Adhesive Capsulitis’ refers to a painful inflammation and stiffening of the shoulder joint. Its consensus definition is “a condition of uncertain etiology, characterised by significant restriction of both active and passive shoulder motion that occurs in the absence of a known intrinsic shoulder disorder.” It is relatively uncommon in the realm of shoulder injuries, but most frequently occurs in females between the ages of 40 and 60 years.
Most commonly, those affected will have difficulty with tasks such as reaching their arm behind their back, reaching for their bra strap and reaching for overhead cupboards, in addition to often unrelenting pain in their shoulder and upper arm.
The following guide offers a detailed explanation of a Frozen Shoulder, along with key information you should know when receiving treatment. Due to its long term nature, it is important to receive sound early advice and appropriate exercise prescription to minimise your pain and shoulder dysfunction.
