Frozen Shoulder or Adhesive Capsulitis
The good news is a Frozen Shoulder is often over-diagnosed. By this we mean that there are a range of shoulder problems which mimic the problems of pain and restriction. The problem often occurs between 40-60 years of age, favours females and has an association with people with Diabetes. It can follow a background of increased use, such as when we have hurt the opposite arm, or decreased use, such as when we have hurt the same arm.
At the practice we can offer advice based on experience and the latest research. We can provide treatment when applicable and liaise with your G.P or consultant if dual management is needed.
