What is Frozen Shoulder Treatment?

Frozen shoulder treatment aims to alleviate pain and stiffness in the shoulder joint, commonly experienced by those suffering from adhesive capsulitis. It’s suitable for patients experiencing a limited range of motion, discomfort, or difficulty in performing daily activities. Here are some of the potential benefits of undergoing this treatment:

  • Improved performance in daily activities
  • Restored mobility and range of motion
  • Prevention of long-term complications
  • Alleviation of pain and discomfort

Signs You May Need Frozen Shoulder Treatment In Singapore

Though a frozen shoulder isn’t an immediate cause for concern, it may be exacerbated and cause more pain and discomfort. Early intervention is recommended, especially when the pain disrupts your daily activities. If you experience the following, consult with an orthopaedic specialist:

Persistent shoulder pain

When shoulder pain lasts for more than a few weeks and doesn't improve with rest or over-the-counter painkillers, it's a sign that you may need specialized treatment.

Limited range of motion

Difficulty in moving your shoulder or lifting your arm above your head could be a sign of a worsening frozen shoulder.

Pain during the night

Experiencing shoulder pain while sleeping or when lying on the affected side may be an indication of a more serious condition.

Stiffness in the shoulder joint

If your shoulder joint feels stiff and you're struggling to perform daily activities, you may need proper treatment for your shoulder.

When Should A Frozen Shoulder Be Treated?

If you notice persistent pain, stiffness, or limited range of motion that doesn't improve with rest or over-the-counter pain medications, seek medical attention immediately. Early intervention is key to preventing long-term complications, ensuring a more effective and efficient recovery, and avoiding potential permanent stiffness or chronic pain.

Each case is unique, and the choice of treatment depends on your orthopaedic surgeon’s recommendations, depending on the severity and stage of the condition, as well as the patient's overall health and preferences.

Can frozen shoulder be treated without surgery?

Yes, a frozen shoulder can be treated without surgery using conservative treatment methods such as physical therapy, pain medications, and corticosteroid injections. Surgery is typically reserved for cases where conservative treatments have been ineffective or when the condition is causing significant disability.

Can physical therapy help with frozen shoulder treatment?

Physical therapy can help to restore the range of motion, increase joint flexibility, and strengthen the muscles around the shoulder joint. A physical therapist can design a customized treatment plan that includes stretching and strengthening exercises, manual therapy, and other modalities to address your specific needs.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How can I prevent frozen shoulder from recurring?

    To avoid recurring frozen shoulder, maintain good shoulder health by regularly performing range-of-motion exercises and maintaining overall physical fitness. Additionally, addressing any underlying conditions that may contribute to frozen shoulder, such as diabetes or thyroid disorders, can help reduce the risk of recurrence.

    Are there any risks associated with frozen shoulder treatment?

    As with any medical treatment, there are potential risks associated with frozen shoulder treatment. For non-surgical treatments, risks may include side effects from medications or injections. Surgical treatments carry additional risks, such as infection, bleeding, or damage to surrounding structures. Your orthopaedic specialist will discuss these risks with you before undergoing treatment.

    How effective are corticosteroid injections for frozen shoulder treatment?

    Corticosteroid injections can provide temporary relief from pain and inflammation associated with frozen shoulder, but they’re not a cure for the condition. The effectiveness varies from person to person, and they’re typically used in conjunction with other treatments such as physical therapy to achieve the best possible outcome.

    Can I exercise during frozen shoulder treatment?

    While high-intensity or heavy lifting exercises may not be recommended during the early stages of frozen shoulder treatment, gentle range-of-motion and stretching exercises can be beneficial. These exercises can help maintain joint flexibility, reduce stiffness, and promote healing. Consult with your doctor or physical therapist before starting any exercise program to ensure it’s appropriate for your condition.

    Will I need to wear a sling or brace after frozen shoulder treatment?

    The use of a sling or brace after frozen shoulder treatment depends on the specific treatment method used and your orthopaedic specialist’s recommendations. In some cases, a sling may be suggested for a short period to provide support and limit movement, particularly after surgery.
