Effective treatment for frozen shoulder

There are many causes of frozen shoulder

Frozen shoulder usually occurs when the shoulder joint becomes inflamed, leading to progressive tissue tightness, stiffness and pain. Often times, frozen shoulder has no clear cause and typically affects people over 40 who have an underlying injury or medical condition like diabetes. Some experts believe that it is caused by a combination of inflammation from soft tissue tears, lack of general activity in the shoulder joint or sleeping on the same side for an extended period of time. Whatever the cause may be, if you experience any signs of frozen shoulder it’s important to seek assistance from a regulated health professional such as a chiropractor or physiotherapist as soon as possible.

Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is an incredibly common musculoskeletal disorder that affects the shoulder joints. This condition is characterized by extreme pain and an inability to move the shoulder joint – usually accompanied by stiffness and swelling. It generally comes on after injury or prolonged immobility, though it can occur for other reasons too.

Symptoms of frozen shoulder typically develop gradually and can include pain in the affected area along with limited range of motion and stiffness throughout the joint. This pain may be dull or aching initially and can become more severe over time if not properly treated. Individuals with frozen shoulder will often complain of difficulty reaching behind their back or lifting their arms above their head due to intense pain in the shoulder joint. Additionally, when turning in bed or attempting to adjust clothing, people with frozen shoulder may experience a grinding sensation due to lack of lubrication within the joint capsule.

Frozen shoulder is a common condition characterized by progressive pain and stiffness in the shoulder joint. There are several treatments available that can help manage its symptoms. Seeing a chiropractor is recommended to reduce any underlying imbalances in the musculoskeletal system that may be contributing to the condition. Physiotherapy will include various stretching and strengthening exercises to improve range of motion, flexibility, and strength in the affected area. Massage therapy can also be beneficial as it aims to loosen shoulder muscles and release surrounding tension. To get the best results, it’s important to remain consistent with these treatments as they can help decrease pain intensity and increase comfort levels over time.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
