Of what I know being around physical therapists is when a client deals with frozen shoulder.You start to get stiffness and pain around the shoulder area. Can be quiet painful. You get it by limited actions of using the shoulder joint on a continuous basis. It is hard to see how someone can get frozen should simply by the fact we use our arm everyday for daily activities and our arm is connected to the shoulder joints so it is constantly moving. In order to get a frozen shoulder something has to be seriously wrong. Whether it may be diseases or your arm just completely stop functioning due to being a cast.
Either way, in my opinion, it is hard getting a frozen shoulder. When I encounter someone with a frozen shoulder. I saw that heat helps along with stretching helps. Most importantly, doing range of motion exercises can be extremely beneficial. The cases of the severity might be varied; but I have seen simple exercises relieve the client off the pain he or she is having.
Exercises like finger walk is a prime example. You simply walk your fingers on like a stair wooden figure usually on a wall and walk your fingers all he way to the top and bottom.Your fingers usually two fingers is doing the exercises. Good exercises for range of motion. Another one is cross body arm stretch. It is just as the name describe cross your arm across your body for a good stretch. Those are some things I learned about frozen shoulder.
