Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis)
This is stiffening of your shoulder. It happens over
time, and you may not know what caused it. With a
frozen shoulder, it can be hard for you to be as
active as you like.
We don't fully understand this condition. It's a
problem with the shoulder's joint capsule. That's a
membrane that surrounds the joint. With frozen
shoulder, this membrane thickens. Bands of tissue
we call "adhesions" develop. Frozen shoulder may
be linked to swelling. It can develop after an injury.
It can happen after surgery, or after your shoulder
is immobilized for a period of time. And, it may be
linked to diabetes and to other diseases.
Frozen shoulder is most often a problem for older
people. It starts slowly, with mild pain. Over a few
months, the pain gets worse. It can be hard for you
to sleep. You begin to have trouble lifting your arm,
or moving it backwards. With time, pain can lessen,
but your shoulder may become so stiff that you can
barely move it.
A frozen shoulder might take long time to get better on its own, and sometime it will not get better without an intervention. You may benefit from treatment
options such as medications, injections and
physical therapy. NorTex is here to help and the new Regenerative medicine options "Stem Cell" injections have shown promising results for treatment of frozen shoulder and it's underlying cause (s) when combined with other therapies.
