Frozen Shoulder

Frozen shoulder is a common condition that usually affects the older age group of people. It starts with the pain in the shoulder and slowly leads to restriction of movements in the shoulder joint. Shoulder muscles go into stiffness and affect almost every movement of the shoulder joint, particularly the outward rotation and elevation.

Some of the main causes for frozen shoulder can be inactivity or not using your hand due to any reason like post-fracture, post-injury or any medical condition which leads you to prolonged bedridden. Patients who are at higher risk are those who have diabetes, high blood pressure levels, or muscular imbalances due to weakness. Women and older age groups are mainly affected by this.

The patient will face discomfort and pain around the joint. This type of pain may also get worse at night and cause hindrance while sleeping. He will not be able to do overhead activities like lifting any object from above level, combing, picking objects far away from your reach may also be painful and restricted.

Pain remains for about 3-4 months, it can also happen that patient may feel less pain after a certain period of time but stiffness get worsen after such stage if left untreated and as it is. It can go into the frozen stage from which it is very difficult to reach back to normal ranges.

For such conditions, our Dynafisio Team provides you with our best Physiotherapy Treatment in Gurgaon at our clinic. Our treatment includes; Mobility exercises, stretching exercises and strengthening exercises in later phases. It also includes the assistance of electrical physiotherapy modalities like TENS, Ultrasonic therapy (US), and the use of a moist heat pack or ice pack is used according to the patient stage in which he/she is visiting us.

In the initial phase, the primary goal of the treatment is pain relief which is done through US and TENS. MHP is applied before any treatment in order to release your muscles and enhance circulation so that exercises can be done easily. Mobility Exercises includes every movement in the pain-free range. This is done with the help of a stick. Stick assisted movements like forward elevation, sideways elevation and crossing over in a lying position.

The basic mantra of this phase is ‘Slow and sustained Stretch’ as aggressive stretching can worsen the condition. Pendular exercises in the pain-free range can be done. Finger ladder exercises are also done against the wall.

When the pain subsides, the primary goal of the treatment moves toward gaining back the patient’s normal range. For which all the above exercises are continued and hold time and the no of repetitions for stretches increases. Pulley exercises can be added further. Once the patient gain back its normal ranges can be shifted to light resistance exercises and strengthening exercises.

Thera-band exercises in all directions for shoulder elevation, rotation can be started and continued as per the patient comfort zone. Strengthening for the shoulder with ½ kg weight can also be started for shoulder movements. Upper back muscles hold equal importance while working on frozen shoulder otherwise gaining back your complete ranges may be difficult, for which we perform W-Y-T exercises.

Stretches and mobility exercises are continued even when the patient recovers in order to maintain normal shoulder strength. For further advanced treatment contact us at or visit us at our Dynafisio clinic at your nearest branch.
