Frozen shoulder

Osteopathy for Frozen shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis)

Frozen shoulder often occurs for no apparent reason, but it can result from a mild shoulder injury or following surgery. This condition causes inflammation of the capsule of the shoulder joint, resulting in adhesions which cause severe pain and reduced range of movement. It typically has three stages – pain, followed by stiffness and then resolution as the pain decreases and the range of movement improves. This process can take place over an extended period of time, often up to 2 years.

Osteopathic intervention can help prevent further stiffness and maintain range of movement, which can greatly enhance the recovery period.
