Frozen Shoulder Melbourne

Do you suffer from Frozen Shoulder?

Frozen shoulder also known as adhesive capsulitis of shoulder, is a condition characterised by stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint.

When the tissues in your shoulder joint become thicker and tighter, scar tissue develops over time. As a result, your shoulder joint doesn't have enough space to rotate properly.

Symptoms: Joint stiffness

The primary symptom is persistent pain that lasts weeks to years.

Common Causes;

The condition occurs more commonly in people with diabetes and in people who've kept their arm immobilised for a long period of time.

Symptoms may start gradually and resolve within one or two years.

Treatment involves stretching and sometimes injecting corticosteroids and numbing medication into the joint capsule. In some cases, surgery is used to loosen the joint capsule.
