Frozen Shoulder Physiotherapy is a unique form of physical therapy, in which the physical structure of the shoulder, as well as the muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones involved in the shoulder, are manipulated by a qualified Physiotherapist or other similar type of physical therapist. The goal with frozen shoulder physiotherapy treatments is to increase the range of motion of the shoulder, as well as strengthen the surrounding musculature so that the symptoms of frozen shoulder do not reoccur.
Frozen shoulder is a painful condition in which the tissues of the shoulder become frozen or brittle due to lack of blood flow to the tissues of the shoulder. Frozen shoulder physiotherapy seeks to relieve the pain, stiffness and mobility of the shoulder, while reducing the damage done to the tissues by the disease process.
The onset of frozen shoulder usually coincides with the loss of one or more shoulder muscles. Most physicians will recommend physiotherapy for patients suffering from arthritis in the shoulder. This is because frozen shoulder physiology plays a very significant role in the rehabilitation of arthritic shoulder movements. Once you have been diagnosed with this condition, you will then be encouraged to seek out and schedule regular physiotherapy appointments.
