Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a painful condition typically characterised by pain and stiffness in the shoulder joint.
While the triggers which cause this debilitating inflammatory condition remain uncertain, its characteristic pain and stiffness can make simple daily tasks such as dressing, using a hair dryer, changing gears in the car or reaching for your cup of coffee impossible.
The condition can be serious and tends to get worse over time without treatment as collagen and adhesions build up and the shoulder joint becomes fibrotic leading to pain and restricted movement which can last up to 4 years.
How can we help at Ben&Biao?
We use a combination of acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, manual release therapies and massage in order to stimulate the breakdown of adhesions and to stimulate the body to break down the excessive collagen which has built up in the joint capsule.
