What Athletes Want To Know About Frozen Shoulder Syndrome

The shoulder bears the brunt of a lot of work even in day to day activity. When something goes wrong, it can dramatically impact a person’s quality of life. The joint itself is quite complex with a wide range of motion, and that ability can become compromised due to overuse, injury, or age. The goal of the chiropractor is to keep the shoulder moving naturally and ensuring that it is a pain-free. Frozen shoulder syndrome is one common condition that affects the joint, limiting mobility and causing pain. Chiropractic is an effective treatment that helps patients regain range of motion and decrease or eliminate their pain.

What is frozen shoulder?

Frozen shoulder, or adhesive capsulitis, is characterized by pain, stiffness, and limited range of motion of the shoulder joint. It can occur as a result of overuse or after an injury, but can also be caused by diabetes or other diseases or even stroke.

It happens when the tissues that surround the joint become stiff, and scar tissue begins to form in the area. Shoulder movements become painful and difficult. It typically has a gradual onset, then goes away just as slowly. It can take a year or longer for the condition to subside.

What are the symptoms of frozen shoulder?

There are three stages of frozen shoulder and from onset to resolution. It develops gradually and subsides just as slowly with each stage lasting several months.

  • Stage 1 – Freezing Stage – The shoulder experiences pain during movement and the
  • Stage 2 – Frozen Stage – The shoulder is stiffer, but the pain may begin to decrease. However, using it becomes increasingly difficult.
  • Stage 3 – Thawing Stage – The shoulder begins to “loosen” and the range of motion starts to return.

Some patients may experience worsening pain at night which can lead to sleep problems.

What causes frozen shoulder?

Frozen shoulder often develops when the patient ceases regular use of the joint due to injury, pain, or a chronic health condition. There is no single cause of frozen shoulder; it can be caused by any problem involving the shoulder that prevents the patient from maintaining a full range of motion.

It can also happen when the capsule that encases the connective tissue of the shoulder becomes thick and tight. The movement of the shoulder joint is restricted, impacting its ability to move.

People who are 40 and older tend to be more at risk for frozen shoulder, and it occurs more often in women.

Patients who have had prolonged mobility of the shoulder or their shoulder has been completely immobilized are also at risk. These mobility issues may result from conditions including:

  • Broken Arm
  • Surgery recovery
  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Stroke

Certain diseases can also place patients in the high-risk category for frozen shoulder. Some disorders that may increase that risk includes:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Diabetes
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Underactive thyroid
  • Tuberculosis
  • Overactive thyroid

How can chiropractic help frozen shoulder?

The primary treatment for frozen shoulder involves pain management and preserving the shoulder’s range of motion. Over the counter pain, relievers like NSAIDs and aspirin are often the first line of treatment. Physical therapy may also be used.

In situations where the symptoms persist, more aggressive treatment may be necessary. Doctors may recommend invasive remedies such as surgery and steroid injections.

However, chiropractic can treat the condition from onset through resolution. Even in instances where the symptoms persist, chiropractic can still be very effective. It can be as effective as more aggressive measures without drugs or invasive procedures. Regular chiropractic care can help return range of motion to the shoulder and return the patient’s quality of life.
