Frozen Shoulder Treatment

 Frozen shoulder is a term that covers a ranges of symptoms, usually pain and reduced range on motion, the stiffness and pain seems to just come on, lasting months and even years. 

A difficult condition that you may have seen unsuccessfully your GP will look at:

  1. Pain relief – advise to avoid movements that cause you pain. Only move your shoulder gently. Use paracetamol or ibuprofen to ease the pain.
  2. Further Strong pain and swelling relief – prescribed painkillers. Maybe steroid injections in your shoulder to bring down the swelling.
  3. Referral for physio – shoulder exercises once it’s less painful, physio within the NHS is generally exercise orientated and limited access. 

Treatment for frozen shoulder can take a while to recover from and can take unto 18 months, though this tends to be much less with pain management and effective treatment.

Our treatment for frozen shoulder will consider the whole shoulder complex, not just the painful bit  with a view to encourage movement and a return to full function. 

Your GP may prescribe treatment though this is generally limited in time, access and to exercise sheets. 

Specific aspects for frozen shoulder treatment include:

  • stretching exercises
  • massage
  • warm and cold therapy (thermotherapy)
  • mobilisation
  • manipulation
