Do you experience shoulder pain with movement of your arm?

Does the pain limit you from performing everyday tasks?

 

You may be experiencing Frozen Shoulder or Adhesive Capsulitis which is a soft tissue condition resulting from the contracture of muscles around the shoulder joint, causing inflammation, pain and stiffness.

3 Main Symptoms:

– Decreased motion of the shoulder

– Pain

– Stiffness

 

Signs and symptoms typically begin gradually and worsen over time. Pain is usually constant, worse at night and when the weather is colder. As symptoms progress severe loss of movement of the arm occurs. You may become unable to perform activities such as reaching over your head or behind you making even small tasks impossible. Theses symptoms can last up to 2 years without treatment.

 

Common Causes: Frozen shoulder may develop after injury to the shoulder, immobilization or whiplash; most of the time there is no known cause.

 

Treatment: Chiropractic Treatment, Acupuncture and Prescription Stretches/Exercises.

 

Chiropractic Care: Chiropractors can diagnose and treat Frozen Shoulder and other shoulder related conditions. Various treatment options (ie: joint care, acupuncture, electrotherapy, stretches, exercises) may be used to help to decrease pain and restore movement. Frozen Shoulder is very amendable to conservative treatment. Chiropractic Care can help you get back to your daily activities with less pain and improved range of motion.

 

Don’t let your shoulder pain stop you from engaging in your daily activities.
