How to Treat Frozen Shoulder

Effective Frozen Shoulder Treatment

Frozen shoulder is a very painful condition that is becoming more and more common in my clinics. One of the most effective  Frozen Shoulder treatments is stretching and shoulder exercises.

A big problem with frozen shoulder is that when people experience shoulder pain they stop using the joint. A natural reaction to avoiding pain, but this causes further immobility and makes the problem worse. This is why shoulder exercises and stretching is vital if you suffer from a frozen shoulder.

Over the next few post I will examine frozen shoulder treatment options and exercises

Frozen shoulder exercises are so important that I am going to devote a series of blog posts to treatment options and exercises for frozen shoulder over the next week.

Frozen Shoulder Acupuncture Treatment

Frozen Shoulder, or Adhesive Capsulitis, is called “Frozen Shoulder” because the condition usually results in the shoulder joint becoming stiff or “frozen”. This  causes pain and immobility of the shoulder joint.

Acupuncture is one of the alternative treatments available for Frozen Shoulder.
Acupuncture, involves needles being carefully inserted into specific points on the body to relieve pain.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, each of the acupuncture points lies on a meridian, along which vital energy, called “chi”, flows.

To many westerners the idea of acupuncture as a treatment option is both new and strange, but there are many patients who report frozen shoulder pain relief after acupuncture.

Does Acupuncture Work?

The problem with assessing the effectiveness of acupuncture in the treatment of frozen shoulder is finding unbiased evidence.

Whilst patients do report pain relief, very few medical studies have been conducted on the use of acupuncture for treating frozen shoulder.

Those studies that have been conducted have been received with mixed reviews by the medical community.

What Are The Symptoms of Frozen Shoulder?

Frozen shoulder is  an increasingly common shoulder injury and I’m frequently asked, “What Are The Symptoms of Frozen Shoulder?”

Frozen shoulder is a very painful condition of the shoulder joint. The most characteristic symptom is  severely restricted shoulder movement.

In frozen shoulder, the shoulder joint capsule and the surrounding soft tissues undergo inflammation, stiffness and contraction, thereby affecting all the movements of the involved shoulder. 

Because shoulder movements become painful sufferers tends to keep the shoulder  immobile, giving rise to the name “frozen shoulder”.

The type of pain is another symptom of this condition. Frozen shoulder pain is ususally described as dull, boring, aching in nature. In the initial stages, it gets more in intense at night, often disturbing  sleep. As frozen shoulder  progresses, the pain persists  day and night.

How to Avoid Frozen Shoulder

It is very important to exercise the shoulder after even minor shoulder injuries because even small injuries can develop into a frozen shoulder. This is known as secondary stiffness. Basically, after any sort of trauma the shoulder will tend to stiffen up and that’s when it is particularly vulnerable to freezing.

Exercises to avoid frozen shoulder should include both shoulders, even if only one shoulder is injured. This is so that the working elements of the painful shoulder becomes as strong as the pain-free one. If, however, you are experiencing pain in BOTH shoulders, the exercise regime should be undertaken every other day.

Frozen Shoulder Strengthening Exercises

Shoulder strengthening exercises and muscle toning play an important role in recovery from Frozen Shoulder.

Performing rotation exercises will help restore mobility and build strength.  Small arm circles and shoulder rolls are examples of rotation exercises. For further details about these exercises please see the link below.

Performing strengthening exercises lying on the floor puts less stress on the shoulder and can help reduce the pain. Lie on your good side, and raise the affected arm towards the ceiling. Slowly rotate the arm in one direction, and then rotate is back in the other direction. Gently work up to standing exercises.

How to Treat Arm Shoulder Pain

At its most serious arm or shoulder pain can be a symptom of angina or to a heart attack.

Arm and shoulder pain that is combined with the inability to use the arm, any loss of sensation, or includes paleness of the hands or fingers needs prompt medical evaluation.

Arm and shoulder pain that is accompanied by redness, fever, neck stiffness, or that occurs after an accident should also be evaluated promptly by a doctor.

For other types of arm or shoulder pain, the general rule of thumb is to rest the arm and shoulder for 24 hours and then begin to very gently use the arm, putting it through its’ entire range of motion to prevent “frozen shoulder”.

The application of heat and ice treatment is also recommended along with physical therapy and shoulder exercises.
