The shoulder joint is truly an amazing and complex joint. It allows us to move our arms wherever we want them to go and the movements are so easy that we oftentimes take it for granted, and you never know what you’ve got until it’s gone.

Frozen shoulder, otherwise known as adhesive capsulitis, affects roughly 250,000 Australians each year, and commonly presents itself in people aged over 40.

It usually only develops if there has been some trauma (falling with arms outstretched for example), or potentially after inflammation such as tendonitis.

When the shoulder becomes painful, we partially or completely restrict movement, which is recommended for the first 24-48 hours, however prolonged restriction can lead to adhesions (think of it as internal scar tissue) in the shoulder joint.

This can definitely become a vicious cycle, which is why we are here to help.

We use a combination of trigger point therapy, deep tissue massage, gentle stretching and more in surrounding areas to promote circulation to the shoulder joint.

We will always take great care and use an individualised approach to our treatments.
