Frozen shoulder is a common cause of shoulder pain in people aged between 40 and 60, with women affected more than men.
During the first phase pain comes on slowly and leads to a gradual loss in shoulder movement.
Some patients may not notice anything until they struggle to, say, fasten a bra or comb their hair.
Eventually, over the space of a couple of months, the pain becomes so severe that it interferes with sleep because there is an exquisite pain when attempting to lie on the affected shoulder. This can last up to a year.
Physiotherapy treatment is the first option for Frozen Shoulder. The main aim of physiotherapy treatment is to gently stretch the shoulder joint capsule. This is achieved through performing passive mobilisations which are done at various points in the range of shoulder movement. In addition, the patient must keep up a regular active stretching program to gently improve shoulder range of movement.
