Frozen Shoulder Treatment in Toronto

What is Frozen Shoulder?

Frozen shoulderAlso known as Adhesive Capsulitis, frozen shoulder is characterized by pain and stiffness of the shoulder joint. It is a painful condition which, if left untreated, can lead to severe restriction of the movement of the shoulder joint, making it extremely difficult for the patient to perform their day to day tasks.

While the exact cause of frozen shoulder is unknown, there are a number of factors that can increase your risk of developing the condition. These include:

  • Age and Gender — Women are affected more commonly than men. The condition is more common in people aged 40 or older.
  • Previous Injury — Frozen shoulder can develop after an injury or surgery of the shoulder joint.
  • Chronic Conditions — Diabetes, heart disease, and stroke increase an individual’s risk of developing a frozen shoulder.
  • Immobility — Limited mobility of the shoulder joint for a long time may lead to frozen shoulder.

The treatment of frozen shoulder depends on the severity of the condition. Depending on the symptoms, physiotherapists develop a treatment and rehabilitation plan that makes use of muscle release techniques, joint mobilization and stretches, acupuncture, and other techniques to improve mobility and relieve pain.
