Frozen shoulder pain can impact on day to day life activities such as dressing and showering. Things as simple as putting your arm into a sleeve can be impossible without asking for help.
Frozen shoulder occurs when the shoulder joint connective tissues become inflamed and then thicken, harden and contract. There is a strong link between diabetes, smoking and post-surgical history or trauma and the development of frozen shoulder. However, it can also happen without an obvious cause.
Frozen shoulder can take over two years to resolve when left on it’s own. Sometimes people resort to surgery in order to regain their movement.
Thankfully, osteopathic treatment can help you avoid surgery.
Tracy is one of the few Master Practitioners in the Neil Asher Technique of frozen shoulder treatment, so if you have a troubled shoulder book in to see her today
The techniques Tracy’s use are very gentle and the movements during the treatment sessions are performed within a range that is pain free for you. Most people regain movement in their shoulder when the treatment is based on osteopathic mobilization of the shoulder joint. The treatment tends to be more effective than the patient trying to move the shoulder themselves. This may be because the joint is in a relaxed state.
The osteopathic mobilization I use may ‘remind’ your nervous system of the possibility of movement without pain. This is possibly why osteopathy is an effective treatment to aid ‘frozen shoulder’ recovery. Tracy Hannigan
