Frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis
Frozen shoulder or ‘adhesive capsulitis’ affects shoulder joint mobility with stiffness and pain and occurs usually between the ages of 40 and 60. If left untreated, recovery is slow and symptoms can last for two to three years. If treatment is started early, frozen shoulder can be successfully cured in a few weeks with regular manipulation mobilisation and deep massage.
The tendons of the rotator cuff pass beneath the acromion of the shoulder. Overuse may cause inflammation of the tendons and their protective bursa and a narrowed sub acromion space within the shoulder can produce tendon pinching or compression with pain on raising the arm.
The rotator cuff tendon may tear or become chronically inflamed from falls or repetitive strain resulting in weakness and shoulder pain on internal or external rotation relating to back and neck pain.
The shoulder is a ball and socket joint and is the easiest to dislocate of any joint in the body. This is due to the socket (glenoid) being very shallow compared with the diameter of the ball. The stability of the shoulder is aided by a series of ligaments, a thick rim of tissue that deepens the socket called the labrum and a strong but flexible capsule which surrounds and contains the entire shoulder joint.
If the ligaments or the capsule stretch or the labrum is torn off the socket then the joint may partially or fully dislocate.
Shoulder and acromioclavicular joint (AC Joint) dislocation.
Damage of the shoulder is relatively common with falls, sports or road traffic accidents.
Sayer Clinics’ chiropractors, osteopaths and physical therapists are extremely experienced in the diagnosis and rehabilitation of shoulder conditions.
Rotator cuff tendinitis or shoulder trauma often produce pain and stifness in surrounding muscles including deltoid, pectoral, supraspinatus, infraspinatus, trapezius and rhomboids and intercostal muscles.
Diagnosis is made using specialist orthopaedic and neurological examination and tests and using our 2017 high-definition diagnostic digital x-rays of the shoulder or our 2017 diagnostic Ultrasound at Sayer Clinic: Kensington.
