Frozen Shoulder Treatment in Delta

What is meant by Frozen Shoulder?

Frozen Shoulder, also known as Secondary Adhesive Capsulitis, is largely a mystery and a rare condition where the shoulder becomes stiff and painful without any proper reason. People struggling with a frozen shoulder lose their normal range of motion. The discomfort from the loss of movement becomes severe, limiting individuals to carry out their daily activities. Frozen shoulder is caused by inflammation, thickening, or shrinkage of the capsule surrounding the normal shoulder joint. Injuries such as bursitis, rotator cuff injury, or tendinitis could also lead to a frozen shoulder.

Phases of a Frozen Shoulder

Someone suffering from a frozen shoulder goes through three phases:

  • Freezing Stage - Developing pain in the shoulder that gets worse over time. This stage could last for 6-9 months. It limits how far you can move your shoulder.
  • Frozen Stage - This stage lasts from 4-12 months. The stiffness gets worse, and the shoulder movement becomes difficult. It gets tough to get through everyday activities.
  • Thawing Stage - It is when the range of motion starts returning to normal. It can take from 6 months-2 years.
