What is Frozen Shoulder?

Frozen shoulder is a condition that causes pain and stiffness in your shoulders, as well as possible numbness or tingling. It typically affects the top of one arm near your neck or upper back, but it can also affect both arms simultaneously.

There are two types of frozen shoulder: primary and secondary. In most cases, people who have a frozen shoulder will experience pain and stiffness in their shoulders. They may also feel numbness or tingling, particularly when moving the fingers of that arm.

The good news is that it’s not permanent! We recommend physiotherapy treatments like manual therapy, exercise therapy, and acupuncture to help with pain relief and mobility after diagnosis.

What Causes Frozen Shoulder?

Frozen shoulder can be caused by a number of different factors. It often results from an injury that causes the surrounding muscles and tendons to swell, which in turn puts pressure on your rotator cuff leading to a frozen shoulder.

It is also possible for it to develop without any known reason! In most cases, people who have a frozen shoulder will experience pain and stiffness in their shoulders. They may also feel numbness or tingling, particularly when moving the fingers of that arm.

Laser therapy is used to treat a wide range of conditions, including frozen shoulder.

Laser treatment can reduce pain and stiffness, increase joint mobility, improve muscle strength and function in the affected area while reducing spasms associated with the condition. It stimulates blood flow that brings oxygen-rich red cells needed for cell repair by removing waste products from the cells.

Joint traction & Spinal Decompression 

Joint traction & spinal decompression are interventions that help reduce pain and stiffness in the affected shoulder by relaxing muscles, ligaments, tendons, tissues surrounding your joint. We use this therapy to improve the range of motion. It is particularly helpful when combined with other physiotherapy treatments for frozen shoulder treatment like exercise therapy and manual therapy.
