Are you experiencing a frozen shoulder and wondering if osteopathy can help?
Look no further than The London Road Clinic. In this page, we’ll explore how osteopathy can help treat frozen shoulder and what you can expect from treatment.
What is Frozen Shoulder?
Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a condition that causes pain and stiffness in the shoulder joint. It typically develops gradually and can be caused by injury, surgery, or underlying conditions such as diabetes.
Can Osteopathy Help Treat Frozen Shoulder?
Yes, osteopathy can be an effective way to treat frozen shoulder. Osteopaths use gentle manipulation techniques to improve the function of the musculoskeletal system and promote healing. By reducing tension and improving mobility in the shoulder joint, osteopathy can help alleviate pain and stiffness associated with frozen shoulder.
What Can You Expect from Osteopathy Treatment?
During your first osteopathy appointment, your osteopath will conduct a thorough assessment to determine the cause of your frozen shoulder. They will then develop a personalised treatment plan that targets your specific needs and concerns.
Osteopathy treatment is gentle and non-invasive, and most people find it relaxing and soothing. You may feel some mild discomfort or soreness after treatment, but this is normal and should subside within a day or two.
It’s important to note that osteopathy is not a quick fix for frozen shoulder. You may require several sessions over several weeks to achieve optimal results. However, many people find that osteopathy offers a natural and effective way to manage frozen shoulder without resorting to surgery or prescription medication.
If you’re experiencing frozen shoulder, osteopathy may be able to help. By using gentle manipulation techniques to improve the function of the shoulder joint, osteopathy offers a natural and effective way to manage pain and stiffness associated with frozen shoulder.
