Frozen Shoulder / Adhesive Capsulitis

Frozen Shoulder is a commonly used term to describe “Adhesive Capsulitis”, a disabling and sometimes severely painful condition of the shoulder. Most often the condition affects people between 40 and 60 years old and more common in women.

What Causes Adhesive Capsulitis?
Adhesive capsulitis occurs as the area around the shoulder joint thickens and contracts.

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.

Chiropractors, in their clinical experience have found that correcting body biomechanics and clearing any nerve interference has had amazing results.

What Are the Symptoms?
Usually there is a dull or aching pain in the outer shoulder area.

Sometimes the pain occurs in the upper arm. The most frequent symptom is stiffness and restricted motion, usually they cannot raise their arm.

How Can Eastern Suburbs Chiropractic Help?
The pain of the frozen shoulder may get better on its own, but improvement can take 2-3 years.

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.
