Frozen shoulder also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a condition characterized by stiffness and pain in your shoulder joint.
Frozen shoulder typically develops slowly, and in three stages. Each stage can last a number of months.
• Freezing stage. Any movement of your shoulder causes pain, and your shoulder's range of motion starts to become limited.
• Frozen stage. Pain may begin to diminish during this stage. However, your shoulder becomes stiffer, and using it becomes more difficult.
• Thawing stage. The range of motion in your shoulder begins to improve.
For some people, the pain worsens at night, sometimes disrupting sleep.
• Physical exam, doctor may ask you to move in certain ways to check for pain and evaluate your range of motion (active range of motion).
• Doctor might then ask you to relax your muscles while he or she moves your arm (passive range of motion). Frozen shoulder affects both active and passive range of motion.
• Frozen shoulder can usually be diagnosed from signs and symptoms alone.
• Imaging tests:
A physical therapist can use heat, short mobilization, ultrasound, short wave diathermy, interferantiol, electrical stimulation and other measures to help ease your pain and prevent a recurrence.
A physical therapist can teach you range-of-motion exercises to help recover as much mobility in your shoulder as possible. Your commitment to doing these exercises is important to optimize recovery of your mobility. Aadil Hospital has been provided well qualified physiotherapist for physical therapy.
