Treating Frozen shoulder in Plano, Frisco, McKinney and AllenWhat is it?

Frozen shoulder, also called adhesive capsulitis, causes pain, stiffness and loss of motion in the shoulder. Over time, the shoulder becomes very hard to move. It is most common in people between the ages of 40-60, but can affect anyone and occurs in about 2% of the general population. The exact cause of this condition is not fully understood but involves swelling and contraction of the glenohumeral ligaments.

Symptoms

The main symptom is limited motion of the arm and stiffness in the shoulder. Many patients also complain of a dull or aching pain on the outside of the shoulder or upper arm.

Treatment

Frozen shoulder typically improves on its own over time, although it may take up to 3 years. Common treatments will include anti-inflammatory medications, stretching exercises and physical therapy. In severe cases where full range of motion does not return to the shoulder, surgery may be required.

If you are experiencing shoulder pain, weakness of the shoulder, stiffness of the shoulder or night time shoulder pain, give us a call 972-250-5700 or make an appointment now.
