I just want to be able to lift my arm!
Frozen shoulder is where the shoulder joint ligaments have started to stick to the bone causing the shoulder to lose is mobility.
This condition is extremely restrictive and often very painful. Usually the cause is a trauma or fall involving the shoulder but there are many other reasons
The shoulder is a ball and socket joint and around the joint is a capsule which holds the joint together. The capsule is damaged and while trying to heal it lays down new material. Unfortunately, this material sticks to the bone stopping the shoulder moving. Mostly people are unable to lift the arm to the side or rotate it backwards.
In order to help, we gently get the shoulder moving again and work on the surrounding muscles and joints to ensure the healing process can complete fully and naturally.
