Physical Therapy is the Best Frozen Shoulder Treatment
Frozen Shoulder, medically referred to “adhesive capsulitis”, is when all the ligaments surrounding the shoulder joint tighten up spontaneously, leaving you in a great deal of pain and with a very limited range of motion. Unfortunately, there is not a lot of conclusive research explaining why frozen shoulder happens or what causes it. There are a few studies that link it to diabetes, but many individuals who do not have diabetes still suffer from this. When frozen shoulder happens, it progresses very quickly. If you begin to notice pain and a decreased range of motion, see a doctor or physical therapist as soon as possible. The sooner you begin to treat frozen shoulder, the better. On this segment of The Drs In, Brianna Hoffarth, Doctor of Physical Therapy, explains how it can be treated and how you stretching can help.
