What is Frozen Shoulder Pain and Injury?
The shoulder is a ball and socket joint. It has the greatest range of movement of any joint in the body. With the muscles and tendons holding it into place, this makes it a very unstable, especially after injury. There are several common causes of shoulder pain.
Frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulisitis causes great pain and discomfort to the sufferer with limited range of movement to the shoulder. The normal phase of inflammation is over 18 months, six months to develop it, six months to have it and the last phase six months to rehabilitate it. Early diagnosis of the pragmatic condition is needed to break the cycle of pain.lder pain.
The shoulder is surrounded by four muscles and tendons giving it stability. They are commonly known as the rotator cuff. The rotator cuff is enclosed in a fluid filled sac or bursa, which helps the tendon to slide friction free. The rotator cuff is open to injury and degeneration. If the small space in between the rotator cuff and the bone above it becomes narrowed, the rotator cuff tendons and bursa can become squeezed, causing pain. This can lead to inflammation in the joint and may lead to tendonitis and bursitis. This is called impingement.
Calcification of the tendon (calcify tendonitis) can occur in the rotator cuff causing acute inflammation and pain. Calcification of the rotator tendon can be usually diagnosis with an x-ray.
Normally under orthopaedic examination, if a patient is unable to lift their arm above their shoulder, this is called painful arch. An arch refers to the range of movement of a healthy shoulder normally 180 degrees. The rotator cuff is susceptible to aging, as we get older the rotator cuff goes through a degenerative changes, commonly known as a rotator cuff tear but in fact is more of a wearing and thinning of the rotator cuff.
All Chartered physiotherapists at the City Clinic Group use orthopaedic examination to diagnosis your individual shoulder pain, and if further investigation is needed we can refer you for an MRI scan. In the case of many shoulder problems, the pain is usually muscular in nature and responds very well to laser therapy, ultra sound, electro medical equipment, mobilization and specific rehabilitation exercises.
