An Adhesive Capsulitis, popularly referred to Frozen Shoulder, is among the list of longer lasting and most debilitating shoulder disorders, but its recovery times can be drastically cut down with specific frozen shoulder physical therapy exercises aimed at recovering range of motion gradually. The most striking symptom of a Frozen Shoulder is not pain, in which common to many other shoulder disorders and injuries, but the inability carry out movements, especially over head, thus affecting daily tasks like reaching for high shelves, shampooing, steering difficulties wheel and so on.
Other conditions still allow some mobility, however painful, but with a Frozen Shoulder the arm is locked by the adhesions restricting the space a shoulder joint, thus blocking it. The adhesions are scarred tissues of the capsule membrane surrounding the rotator cuff, hence the medical term Adhesive Capsulitis. The usual treatments on a Frozen Shoulder are anti inflammatories, cortisone injections, hot packs and ultrasounds. A radical approach is manipulation, the breaking of the adhesions by the surgeon under general anesthesia, but this is costly and mostly avoidable. Drugs and injections carry side effects, while hot packs and ultrasounds are only temporarily effective at best.
The best and well organized treatment is a program of physical therapy training. Gradual stretching exercises help recover mobility and functionality, cutting down recovery times for a disorder can easily commonly last to year and sometimes even many. An Adhesive Capsulitis develops in phases, a freezing phase, a frozen phase and a thawing part. Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) thawing phase alone can last up to year, but can be greatly reduced with the implementation of specific frozen shoulder physical therapy methods. These exercises and stretching can vary in length and duration, depending on phase and severity, and should be professionally devised along with a specialist with knowledge of the rotator cuff disorders as well as proper rehabilitation.
