What is a Frozen Shoulder?
The technical name for a frozen shoulder is adhesive capsulitis. Symptoms typically include stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint which leads to restricted movement.
How does a frozen shoulder feel?
Shoulder pain is intense but short lived when the shoulder is moved in a particular way. Patients will often have difficulty doing simple tasks such as getting dressed or just lifting their arms up.
The longer it is left without treatment the more restricted the movement.
Frozen Shoulder Treatment
There are a number of treatment options for shoulder pain from manipulation to injections and even surgery. One of the newest treatments available is shockwave therapy.
It is clinically proven that pressure waves, when applied to injured tissues, stimulate metabolic reactions, in less technical terms it encourages the body to heal itself. These reactions include:-
- Reduction of pain felt by nerve fibers
- Increased blood circulation in surrounding soft tissues
- Beginning of healing process triggered by stem cells activation
