Frozen shoulder is a painful condition with significant restrictions in movements at the shoulder joint. The shoulder capsule becomes tightened and inflexible. Progression of frozen shoulder happens in three stages:
Initial (Acute) Stage – capsule of the shoulder becomes painfully contracted
Subacute stage – fibrosis (excess tissue) stage where fibres of muscle/tissue holds things together
Chronic stage – where the inflexibility gradually releases
Frozen shoulder if left untreated can take up to two years to heal. Therefore for ideal results we recommend that treatment for frozen shoulder should begin immediately. If the condition is caught early treatment may only take several weeks to correct.
