Frozen Shoulder, known in the medical community as adhesive capsulitis, is a condition that leads to a painful loss of range of motion in the shoulder joint. It causes persistent shoulder pain, inflammation and stiffness in the connective tissue of the shoulder.
Frozen shoulder causes the capsule surrounding the shoulder joint to contract and form scar tissue, which causes a painful restriction in range of motion. The condition is known to gradually worsen over time. These persistent symptoms can make daily tasks extremely painful and challenging.
However, if diagnosed early,
there is a non-invasive chiropractic treatment that offers outstanding results. There is zero downtime for recovery and no rehabilitation required.
If any of these symptoms sound familiar, it’s time to talk with a medical professional:
Delaying a proper diagnosis and treatment can lead to lifelong, debilitating issues.
Surgery and long-term physical therapy are not always required, depending on a proper diagnosis.
