What happens in Frozen Shoulder

In simple words the elasticity of the rubber-like joint capsule is lost, reducing mobility. It commonly affects people aged between 40 and 60 years, and it is more likely in women than in men. It can affect one or both shoulders. Feeling of being handicapped is one of the worst experiences of life and Frozen Shoulder makes you live that until to get the right treatment.

Common Reasons you should know

Frozen shoulder without any known cause can starts with pain. Pain may or may not have any specific point. There are two main reasons to Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis)

  • Diabetes
  • Injury or jerk to the shoulder joint

Many times there is no cause for this inflammation. However, there are some conditions which might be associated to Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis) but there is very less evidence to establish a direct link. These conditions are:

  • Cervical disc disease of the neck
  • Open Heart Surgery
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Shoulder surgery (this may lead to a very stiff shoulder which may give symptoms like a frozen shoulder but it may not be frozen shoulder)
You should join the treatment sessions if you and any one of these symptoms
  • If you have shoulder pain
  • If you have reduced range of motion of the arm
  • If you have stiffness in the neck, shoulder and arm
  • If you are unable to comb your hair or tie the strap at the back
  • If you are unable to sleep on side
  • If you wake up at night due to pain
  • If you are advised to take an injection in the shoulder joint
  • If you are taking pain blockers (Pain killers) pills
  • If you are advised to take steroids
  • if you are recommended for physiotherapy sessions
  • If the pain is radiating down in your arm
  • If you see there is difference between the muscle-loss of right and left shoulder
  • If you have a history of cervical spondylitis (Neck Pain)
  • Immediately join treatment sessions if you are suffering from it from more than one year
Or should join treatment if your x rays/ MRI reads any of the following:
  • Periarthritis
  • thickening of the joint capsule
  • reduced joint space
  • partial tear
  • full thickness tear
  • edema
  • Adhesive capsulitis

All of these are regular findings in a frozen shoulder case and can be very effectively treated or cured from the root.

Testimonials

Suresh Garg, M/45 yrs, Businessman, Delhi:

“I was completely devastated with pain and the feeling of being a handicap. I took me three months of regular exercise to get out this condition completely. Now after 15 years of recovery i still haven’t forgotten these painful nights before starting treatment with Dr Deepak Sachdeva. I am thankful to him from the deepest core of my heart for the pain-relief within the first week of my treatment. I haven’t experienced any pain of stiffness again since then.”

Sunita Bansal, F/49 yrs, I.T professional, Sydney:

“The excruciating pain of the shoulder had put a big question mark on my professional carrier I wasn’t able to type, wasn’t able to push open the door I had to call for help to keep files in an overhead cupboard. Cooking food at home was equally painful because keeping utensils on the cooktop wasn’t easy. To my surprise all the pain and agony ended within two weeks of following M. Y. Sequence. It was like a nightmare got over. I did continue my sequence for another couple of months to restore the normal range but this was easy and it later encouraged me to do regular fitness exercises as well. I highly recommend everyone suffering from Frozen Shoulder to learn your Customised sequence soon with Dr Deepak.”

Tips by Dr D S

‘Movement of the arm’ is the key to unlock the Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis). Remember to move your arm in whatever capacity you can throughout the day for faster recovery. Immobility of the arm in the shoulder joint leads to increased stiffness. Movement increases the ‘heat’ in the joint which is exactly your ‘Frozen’ Shoulder is asking you for. So move your arm as frequently as possible to the maximum range of motion you can.

Give external heat for quick relief. Sit in the sun or when you are sitting in your office chair let the sunlight fall on your shoulder through the window. Pour warm water on your shoulder when you are bathing.

The easiest way to give heat during the day is to use an electric heating belt of extra-large size around your shoulder. It takes the shape of your shoulder and covers it from all the four sides (front, top, back and side). It can also be used at night when you wake up due to pain. But be cautious to switch it off before falling asleep again.

Come and learn your quick and easy to do M.Y sequence asap to eliminate the pain from the root.
