FROZEN SHOULDER

Frozen shoulder is undoubtedly a debilitating and painful condition, and it is all too common. Massage therapists the world over will be well aware of this condition and the struggles that its sufferers present to them in the hope of some relief. The challenge is in knowing exactly how to manage this condition within the confines of the massage education.

The pain and stiffness in the shoulder can be so severe that you are unable to lift your arm over your head. It causes stiffness and a restricted range of movements in the affected shoulder. There is a medical term for it – ‘adhesive capsulitis’ and most sufferers will be familiar with the term because the pain can be so testing that they visit a Doctor at some point.

The worst thing about frozen shoulder is that it is persistent. Unfortunately the medical industry are more likely to inject the affected muscle with steroids than recommend a course of massage treatments, however, most frozen shoulder sufferers are likely to want to go down the massage route at some point anyway.

The condition of adhesive capsulitis usually entails a gradual onset of stiffness and increasing pain in only one shoulder; the joint capsule tightens and inflamed.

Benefits of Massage for Frozen Shoulder

Massage therapy is very beneficial in treating frozen shoulder as it increases the blood circulation to the injured region and also reduces the formation of scar tissue. Regular massage should be done to reduce the muscle stiffness. The pain and stiffness usually gets relieved after several massage treatments.
