Osteopathy Treatment in Frozen Shoulder
The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body, sacrificing some stability for mobility. At York Rehab Clinic we see a number of patients displaying signs and symptoms of frozen shoulder and it is our goal to give an early diagnosis, treatment, and effective rehabilitation program to enable the patient to regain full strength and mobility.
Frozen Shoulder, medically known as Adhesive Capsulitis, is a condition that osteopaths can help manage by increasing the range of movement in the shoulder joint which in turn will decrease pain levels. A quick diagnosis by an osteopath is very important as Frozen Shoulder is often incorrectly self-diagnosed, leading to a longer recovery period.
Symptoms will include some (if not all) of the following:
Pain in the outer shoulder area or upper arm.
Stiffness in motion.
Pain will not go away (sometimes for months and/or years)
Pain is often worse at night.
An Osteopath will be able to help reduce pain levels and increase the range of movement by effectively reducing inflammation and pain with some simple soft tissue and gentle articulation. Treatment will take place around the shoulder joint as well as help maintain mobility around the neck and the upper back. Postural advice may also be given alongside some stretching and strengthening exercises.
