What Is Frozen Shoulder?

The years after age 40 brings with them many unexplained aches and pains. The average person over 40 has some type of ailment that they never noticed before. It could be that the knees are not as strong as they used to be, or there is pain in other joints of the body. Bone and joint health often decline as you age causing many different types of pain that could be dull or sharp pain, or chronic or maybe periodic pain. This is often expected with aging, but there are some parts of the body that you do not hear much of when it comes to pain. That is pain in the shoulder and upper arm.

When pain occurs in the shoulder, you may take a pain medication, rub it down with liniment, and hope it goes away. Shoulder pain that is constant, and chronic, can be a serious disorder. Frozen shoulder is the name of a shoulder ailment that could happen to anyone at any age, but is more prone to older adults. This is also called adhesive capsulitis, and causes stiffness, pain, and the loss of the range of motion in the shoulder. The shoulder becomes hard to move after a period of time. It is not completely understood what causes this condition, but contraction of the glenohumeral ligaments are involved. Shoulder stiffness, and limited range of motion in the arm are the most common symptoms.

People who have stiffness of the shoulder in Allen TX are fortunate to be near the Plano Orthopedic Sports Medicine and Spine Center. This facility specializes in evaluating and treating orthopedic injuries. It is comprised of a group of 11 fellowship trained, and board certified orthopedic surgeons, rehabilitation and physical medicine physicians. The doctors there specialize in at least two areas that include sports medicine, shoulder, foot and ankle, hand and wrist, back, neck, spine, and joint replacement. They will inform you of all available treatment options for your frozen shoulder.

Sometimes, frozen shoulder will improve on it’s own, but if it has been more than three years of managing this pain and other complications, you need to see the orthopedic specialists for stiffness of the shoulder in Allen TX, and other surrounding areas of Plano.

The treatment options for frozen shoulder include the use of anti inflammatory medication, doing some stretching exercises, and having physical therapy. Surgery could also be an option if the full range of motion in the shoulder does not return. If you are experiencing night time shoulder pain, stiffness and weakness of the shoulder, or general shoulder pain, seeing the orthopedic doctors is the beginning of relief. Frozen shoulder is real pain, and deserves real treatment by professionals. People with this ailment often have pain on the outside of the upper arm as well. This pain is often described as a dull or achy type of pain. Take care of your body by seeing the right physician as needed for your common ailments, illnesses, and chronic pain.
