Frozen shoulder

Willow chiropractic - specialists in relieving frozen shoulder 

If you are suffering from shoulder pain, you may be suffering from frozen shoulder. Frozen shoulder impacts on mobility, preventing you from carrying out your normal everyday activities. It can be very painful and the persistent pain can get worse when lying down, so that it prevents you from sleeping at night. It is estimated that as many as 1 in 20 people in the UK will suffer this condition in their lifetime and it is most common in people aged between 40 and 60 years of age. 

Our expert chiropractors can help you   

Chiropractic treatment can be a highly effective treatment for frozen shoulder; our chiropractors see lots of people with this condition - from young athletes to more elderly patients. They will work to relieve the pain as quickly as possible and address the underlying problem to make sure that the pain doesn’t come back. 

Here's what one patient said; "I'd tried resting my shoulder but it still wasn't getting any better. After seeing Sarah for 5 sessions she had realigned my shoulder. The tissue very quickly improved, which allowed me to continue competetive Crossfit." 

Often it is a long-term issue, so we recommend that you see one of our specialists so that they can examine your shoulder and neck to see what is causing the problem before discussing the best treatment for you. 

So, whether your shoulder pain is caused by an injury, stress, work, or playing sport, don't just put up with the pain, take action.

Arrange a consultation today with one of our qualified chiropractors for just £20 and start your journey towards a pain-free life.

What is Frozen Shoulder?

Frozen shoulder is a clear case of the body not working properly. It affects your mobility, preventing you from doing everyday activities, and is often very painful. Also known as adhesive capsulitis, it is a condition that leads to pain and stiffness of the shoulder. It is estimated that as many as 1 in 20 people in the UK will suffer from it in their lifetime. Frozen shoulder is most common in people aged between 40 and 60 years of age.

Symptoms

Frozen shoulder symptoms typically get progressively worse over a number of months or years. The pain can be severe for the first two to nine months, followed by increasing loss of function. Having a frozen shoulder can affect everyday activities, and in really severe cases you may not be able to move your arm at all.

What causes Frozen Shoulder?

Frozen shoulder occurs when the flexible tissue surrounding the shoulder joint inflames and thickens. This leads to pain, stiffness, inflammation and a loss of movement. A number of things can increase the risk of developing a frozen shoulder. These include a previous shoulder injury or shoulder surgery, poor posture or repetitive movements. Also diabetes, and other health conditions such as heart disease and stroke.

Treating Frozen Shoulder

Chiropractic treatment can be a highly effective treatment for frozen shoulder. Our chiropractors see a lot of cases of frozen shoulder in a wide variety of people, from young athletes to the elderly. It can happen to anyone, at any time. Often, it is a long-term issue, so it is recommended that you see one of our specialists so they can examine your shoulder and neck, and discuss what is best for you.
