What Causes Frozen Shoulder?

For many, the condition just arrived one morning after waking up and you suddenly have a drastically reduced range of motion.

You’re unable to:

  • Blow-dry, brush or comb your hair
  • Open or close the car door
  • Pull on a heavy coat
  • and a host of other things you require a full range of motion for

While Frozen Shoulder can improve on it’s own it can take months to progress through the pain and lack of movement.


How to Resolve Frozen Shoulder

Injections directly into the joint, such as hydrodilation or straight cortisone, are often done by MD’s. These can provide relief from the pain and discomfort.

Capsular release surgery is another treatment option where doctors work to remove scarred capsule tissue from the joint.

No matter what treatment path you take, physical therapy will play a big part, be it Chiropractic, Massage or Kinesiologist.
