Stiffness and pain in your shoulder may be a sign of a frozen shoulder. Symptoms of this condition may come and go at first but are likely to worsen as time passes. Frozen shoulder can greatly limit the functional use of your arm. Conditions that affect your ability to move your shoulders — such as a mastectomy or stroke — can increase your risk of developing a frozen shoulder.

Physical therapy is often the primary recommended treatment for frozen shoulder. If you have a shoulder that’s stiff, painful, and keeping you up at night, your Brooklyn physical therapist can develop a customized program to help restore your shoulder movement and decrease pain in the safest possible way.

Your body is meant to move. TRI PT is devoted first to restoring function. Our specialists are committed to finding the plan that best suits your lifestyle and goals with customized services.

Your best physical therapy team begins by doing a thorough evaluation, looking for patterns in your decreased range of motion. Your physical therapist moves the affected arm in all directions to determine if movement is limited, whether there’s pain with movement, and how well you can move the arm on your own.

Another term for frozen shoulder is adhesive capsulitis. If you have this condition, moving your arm overhead or behind your back causes pain or tightness in your shoulder. You may experience severe pain that gets worse at night. Simple movements such as reaching up to brush your hair can become extremely difficult.

If you haven’t received any relief from your shoulder pain from traditional medical doctors, look to a physical therapist. An experienced and trained physical therapist offers relief from stiff, painful shoulder problems. When your pain is limited to just one area in your shoulder, there’s a good chance you suffer from a condition called frozen shoulder. A physical therapist can treat the condition. Visit TRI Physical Therapy. Ask for techniques that ease your discomfort and return you to full function with exercises designed specifically to treat frozen shoulder.
