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.
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.
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.
Find relief with the frozen shoulder physical therapy protocol at TRI PT Clinic by referral from your physician or by calling the rehab clinic yourself.
