The shoulder conditions htat are most commonly presented to us include rotator cuff tendonitis, impingement syndromes, A/C (Acromio-clavicular) joint sprains, rotator cuff tears and frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis).
Frozen shoulder is a condition that perplexes the medical world! It consists of a 6-18 month cycle of pain, immobility and remission caused by the inflammation of the sleeve that forms the shoulder capsule. More common in older women, the cause is unknown but trauma and inflamed tendons can lead to inflammation and scar tissue being laid down in the pleated shoulder capsule. Whilst there is no known cure, acupuncture, mobilisations, Deep Tissue Laser therapy and exercise can significantly reduce the severity and shorten the duration in cases we have encountered over the years.
