If you’ve been suffering from shoulder pain and restricted shoulder movement then you could be experiencing a frozen shoulder.
With a frozen shoulder, the shoulder capsule thickens and becomes tight. Stiff bands of tissue (referred to as adhesions) develop. In many cases, there is less synovial fluid in the joint.
The hallmark sign of a “frozen shoulder” is being unable to move your shoulder – either on your own or with the help of someone else.
According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons – “More than 90% of patients improve with relatively simple treatments to control pain and restore motion”.
Chiropractors are trained professionals, able to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal conditions including frozen shoulder. At Beach House Chiropractic Dr Patrick Thomas (Chiropractor) has recently become a certified in NAT – one of the leading techniques for treating frozen shoulder. We also provide clients with Low Level Light Therapy and medical acupuncture, two further well recognised treatments for frozen shoulder.
