Frozen Shoulder

We can help restore shoulder function during this painful condition, also called Adhesive Capsulitis.

We can help restore shoulder function during this painful condition, also called Adhesive Capsulitis.

Also called Adhesive Capsulitis, frozen shoulder occurs when the capsule of connective tissue around the shoulder joint thickens and tightens.

This compromises the shoulder by restricting its movement.  

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 it becomes more difficult to move.

  • Thawing stage - The range of motion in your shoulder begins to improve.

Our goal is to relieve pain and to restore function to your shoulder, no matter what stage it is in. We can help you regain full range of motion in your shoulder.
