Frozen Shoulder Treatment Montmorency
Frozen shoulder is a condition that causes pain, stiffness, and limited range of motion in the shoulder. It can be difficult to treat, but we’ve found the best way to do it is by combining many different treatment options.
At Bodyline Health, we use a combination of acupuncture, massage therapy, physical therapy and chiropractic manipulation for our frozen shoulder treatment in Montmorency. We know that every patient needs something different when it comes to their treatments, so we customize each session for each of our patients. We also offer payment plans for those who need them!
Your shoulder is one of the most amazing joints in the body. They allow a huge range of motion, whilst providing the base of support for all the hundreds of arm movements we complete daily. Your shoulder’s should easily lift your arm overhead, rotate your arm/hands in any direction, twist inwards to scratch your back and other multiple directions. When frozen shoulder occurs this freedom of movement can become restricted, painful and weak. Frozen shoulder can be difficult to treat – however at Bodyline Health we have some of Melbourne’s leading professionals who have decades’ of experience in Frozen shoulder treatment in Montmorency, and surrounding communities including Bundoora, Viewbank, Greensborough, Doncaster and Eltham.
Before our Chiropractors, Myotherapists, Naturopath or Acupuncturist can determine the appropriate treatment plan for your frozen shoulder, they will thoroughly assess your history and perform standard medical, orthopaedic and special imaging testing. A frozen shoulder refers to the slow loss of movement in the shoulder due to joint capsule adhesions within the joint. There are often several stages of progression, resulting in very prolonged shoulder pain and stiffness (for sometimes as long as 12-18 months). It can be triggered by chest/shoulder surgery, immobilization from a past smaller injury or chronic shoulder tendonitis. First indicators present as innocuous but steadily increase in pain in all movements – followed by stiffness and muscle wasting around shoulder. It is most frequently seen in the non-dominant arm, affects middle aged females and/or sedentary people (rather than active people such as manual labourers) and is a very long slow developing condition which requires ongoing treatment. Most evidence shows that results are not as good without constant patient vigilance and proper treatment.
To further exacerbate things, a frozen shoulder injury can often be seen in both shoulders, as a result of overuse or some form of small trauma to the “good arm and shoulder” whilst recovering from the initially injured side.
For this reason, it is vital that a frozen shoulder is diagnosed and overall body treatment plan is undertaken as soon as possible. It is very important to have the musculoskeletal aspect of both shoulders joints addressed in order to best reduce any or all vulnerabilities. Treatment including, mobilizations bio-puncture injections, dry needling, massage and even neck manipulations can all be needed at various stages of the recovery. Finally, it is very important to strengthen the surrounding muscles of the joint, to avoid any future shoulder instability. Together with your Bodyline Health professionals you can achieve recovery.
