What is Frozen Shoulder?

Frozen shoulder syndrome is a commonly encountered complaint. Defining ‘frozen shoulder’ is not straightforward. It has been used incorrectly as a general diagnosis for shoulder pain and stiffness. We will define frozen shoulder syndrome as a soft tissue capsular lesion accompanied by painful and restricted active and passive motion at the shoulder joint’ (Grubbs 1993).

How Do We Treat Frozen Shoulder?

We mainly treat this condition with a specific combination of soft tissue and manipulative techniques. Once symptoms decrease, we begin concentrating on the range of motion aspect using cold laser, exercise, soft tissue release and mobility devices. Most patients recover pretty quickly as a result.
