Frozen Shoulder Rehabilitation
What is Frozen Shoulder? - Often referred to as “Adhesive Capsulitis” and characterized by initially painful and later progressively restricted active and passive glenohumeral (GH) joint range of motion with spontaneous complete or nearly complete recovery over a varied period of time"
1. ONSET IS IDIOPATHIC (NO ATTRIBUTABLE REASON)
– Often associated with other diseases and conditions such as diabetes mellitus, systemic diseases such as thyroid disease, and Parkinson’s disease
2. OCCURS AFTER SHOULDER INJURIES OR IMMOBILIZATION :
– Post-surgery, post injury (rotator cuff tendon tear, subacromial impingement, biceps tenosynovitis and calcific tendonitis), post stroke. Where post-injury, there may be an altered movement pattern to protect the painful structures, which will in turn change the motor control of the shoulder, reducing the range of motion, and gradually stiffens up the joint.
Explore the high tendency factors for Frozen Shoulder.
(1) AGE – Most commonly affects patients between the ages of 40 to 60 years old.
(2) GENDER – It is much more common in women than in men. 70% of people with frozen shoulder are women
(3) SHOULDER / ARM TRAUMA OR SURGERY – Those with shoulder injuries may risk frozen shoulder. The person with a history of shoulder injury or surgery has an increased risk to develop frozen shoulder. When injury or surgery is followed by prolonged joint immobilization, the risk of developing a frozen shoulder is highest. Immobility of recovery may cause the shoulder capsule to stiffen
(4) Having Suffered a stroke
(5) OTHER SYSTEMIC CONDITIONS – Several systemic conditions such as heart disease and Parkinson’s disease have also been associated with an increased risk for developing a frozen shoulder
(6) ENDOCRINE DISORDERS – Patients with diabetes are at particular risk for developing a frozen shoulder. Other endocrine abnormalities, such as thyroid problems eg Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) or Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) can also lead to development of this condition
