What is a frozen shoulder?
Another name for frozen shoulder is adhesive capsulitis
which implies the presence of the joint adhesions (scar tissue), that severely restrict a joint’s range of motion.
If you have a sharp pain in your shoulder joint and are unable to lift your arm up sidewards or bringing your hand up behind your back, you are likely to suffer from frozen shoulder.
This is a very painful and debilitating condition which can last many months – even up to 3 yeras or more.
The good news is that the pain is mainly only at the first stage, whereafter you are left with the disability in moving your arm.
Frozen shoulder generally consists of three stages:
The freezing stage which is when the pain sets in and motion starts to become limited.
The frozen stage as the shoulder becomes stiffer and harder to move, and
The thawing stage which is when the pain and stiffness begin to lessen.
The first step in diagnosing a frozen shoulder
will include taking a medical history and a physical examination.
A range of motion tests will be performed.The osteopath or physiotherapist in London will try to move the shoulder joint manually, and if that cannot be done, a diagnosis of a frozen shoulder is likely.
There are many other elements of the examination and case history that will determine the exact diagnosis and treatment plan for you shoulder injury.
