However, the reasons for the condition are not fully understood. Adhesive capsulitis seems to be associated with systemic issues, eg it’s more common in people with diabetes, it affects about 10% -20% of diabetics, they have also found a link with people who have had heart surgery, or thyroid issues.

Sometimes the pain occurs in the upper arm. The most frequent symptom is stiffness and restricted motion, usually they cannot raise their arm.
At Eastern Suburbs Chiropractic centre the Doctor will take you through a thorough assessment of your spine and shoulder. We may need to take x-rays to better help us to understand and deal with your treatment.
We will be specifically looking for any misalignments creating biomechanical distortions throughout your shoulder girdle therefore putting your shoulder at greater risk of getting the condition in the first place, and nerve interference which will interfere with the body’s ability to heal.
Once the interference to your normal function is found, the Doctor will specifically adjust you. You will also receive some specific exercise to do at home and some postural advice. We have found that we have greatly improved the healing time and debilitation caused from having the condition known as frozen shoulder.
