Frozen Shoulder

Adhesive capsulitis or “frozen shoulder,” occurs in about two to five percent of the U.S population. Physical therapists help people with adhesive capsulitis address the main cause of the pain and stiffness and restore movement/shoulder range of motion in the safest and most effective way possible.


Some of the causes for “Frozen Shoulder” are:


-Immobilization of the arm due to surgery and/or arm being in a sling or cast.

Reactions after surgery or injury.


-Pain from other conditions, such as a rotator cuff tear, tendonitis, arthritis, bursitis, or any other condition that has caused a person to stop moving the shoulder.


-Sometimes, there is no clear reason why adhesive capsulitis develops.



The overall goal is to restore movement, so you can perform your daily activities. Once our Physical Therapists evaluation process has identified the stage of your condition, we create an individualized exercise program tailored to your specific needs. Specific shoulder exercises and manual therapy have been found to be most effective for those suffering from Adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder).
