Adhesive Capsulitis is the Medical term for Frozen Shoulder. Stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint which begins gradually but worsens over time is the sign of a Frozen shoulder. Some common causes of the Frozen shoulder are age, immobility, and systemic diseases. The risk of a frozen shoulder is increased if you are recovering from a procedure that restricts your shoulder movement. Usually, a frozen shoulder does not recur in the same shoulder but may occur in the opposite shoulder for some. During Frozen shoulder, some people may experience worsened pain during sleep, which might disrupt sleep.
There are three stages of Frozen shoulder:
1. Freezing Stage: in this stage your shoulder movement causes pain and the range of movement gets limited.
2. Frozen Stage: Shoulder stiffens and using it becomes very difficult but pain may diminish during this stage
3. Thawing Stage: The range of motion improves in your shoulder.
Treatment for Frozen shoulder involves exercise, numbing medications, or arthroscopic surgery. The method of treatment can be suggested by a competent authority on joints like Dr. Manish Maheswari, the leading Joint specialist, a well-known name is Joint surgery with a long list of procedural accomplishments under his belt. Dr. Manish Maheswari is famed all over Central India as the best Joint Surgeon and Specialist.
People who may face more risk of developing Frozenshoulder are people with diseases like diabetes, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, tuberculosis, cardiovascular disease, and Parkinson’s disease. Another set of people who may develop a frozen shoulder are people who have undergone surgery for Rotator cuff injury, broken arm, stroke, or any such surgery which restricts movement and that too mainly of the shoulder.
Prevention from such conditions can only be sorted out by giving movement to the shoulder as advised by the doctor. Never do anything without advice from a proper medical professional.
