Frozen shoulders are very painful, can they be cured?

Yes the pain associated with them can be reduced and a full range of motion restored.

The simple and yet effective Bowen Fascial Release Technique is well suited to this particular area and is one that responds well to the technique. It is move within the training that is flagged as vital and almost without fail appears in the final examinations, with good reason as it is tricky to get right and the effects are staggering when done right.

Medically known as adhesive capsulitis, the shoulder capsule and connective tissues become stiff and thicken, resulting in greatly restricted shoulder movement. Even simple movements such as fastening a bra or tucking a shirt into trousers become difficult or impossible. The pain can be constant. Concentrating on work can be difficult due to pain that doesn’t subside. Pain often becomes severe at night when trying to sleep. Sleep deprivation is not uncommon. A light bump or certain moves can prompt tremendous pain.

There’s no known cause. Occasionally it can start after some kind of local shoulder injury. Frequently, it just starts with no clear cause.

Frozen shoulder is believed to impact about 3% of people. Those in their 50’s and 60’s are most often impacted, and it’s not often seen in people under 40. It appears to be more common in females versus males.

Bowen Therapy has helped many people overcome their frozen shoulders.
