Frozen Shoulder and Chiropractic Treatment
Shoulder problems can be complex and require a thorough assessment to be accurately diagnosed and as with any other joint problem. The success of any treatment depends on correct diagnosis and cooperation between patient and practitioner.
What is a Frozen Shoulder?
Frozen shoulder, or “adhesive capsulitis” to give it the medical term, refers to loss of arm movement at the shoulder joint combined with inflammation of the tissues within the joint capsule that surrounds the shoulder and is often accompanied by a great degree of pain during even the slightest movements. These tissues become thickened and shortened and eventually ‘stick’ together, hence the medical term – adhesive capsulitis. The good news is that with early diagnosis, the condition is reversible.
