Life will continue until it ends, or is it endless?! 😉
Frozen shoulder occurs when the connective tissue enclosing the joint thickens and tightens.
Frozen shoulder, also called adhesive capsulitis, involves stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint. Signs and symptoms typically begin slowly, then get worse. Over time, symptoms get better, usually within 1 to 3 years.
Hot or Cold: People are divided into two groups including physicians or therapists when it comes to using cold or warm pads on the frozen shoulder. One group believes in cold pads, and the other believes the opposite- warm packets will do the job. Therefore, it is up to you to decide which one could relieve your pain. You may try both to make sure that you choose the right one for your body.
A frozen shoulder may take time to heal, so don’t rush your recovery. In most cases, frozen shoulder gets better on its own, even without treatment. However, there are cases in which people never regain the full range of motion they had before. There are a few treatment options for frozen shoulder, which can be combined, but there’s no obvious course of action that is right for everyone.
Massage and stretching are extremely beneficial for treating frozen shoulder pain. Massage helps to relieve tension and tightness so your muscles can relax. This helps to restore mobility and improve function. It also may help improve blood flow to the affected area and reduce inflammation. Massaging the painful area gently may stimulates the nerve endings and improves blood circulation. Heat helps in reducing pain and stiffness.
Food for frozen shoulder: Increase intake of raw fruits like cherries, papaya, pineapple. They contain (proteolyic) enzymes which in turn help to reduce inflammation. Increase intake of omega 3 fats in supplemental form and from fish and walnuts.
Autoimmune Disorders & Thyroid Issues: Hyperthyroid patients and those dealing with autoimmune disorders produce excess amounts of cytokines (chemical messengers) along with excess fibrous connective tissue – two factors that could lead to the development of Frozen Shoulder.
There are a number of exercises that could be of benefit to you if you had a frozen shoulder condition. Be gentle and start slowly then gradually increase its strength according to your body response to these exercises. Being patient with your exercises might be important so that you wouldn’t harm your shoulder more.
