You're a female in your forties when out of the blue your shoulder starts to hurt! You don't remember doing anything to it and you expect it will feel better on its own soon. The next thing you know your shoulder pain keeps you awake at night, suddenly you can't fasten your bra or the seatbelt! You have the dreaded FROZEN SHOULDER.
Frozen shoulder can affect anyone (even Superman) after a shoulder injury when the shoulder is immobilized, but it can also strike for no apparent reason completely out of the blue. In my practice, I often see women in their forties and early fifties who fall into this latter category. There are a few theories, but the mystery of this affliction still remains largely unsolved.
The successful treatment for frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) is less of a mystery. ACUPUNCTURE WORKS!! In my practice, at AZ Spine Disc and Sport, I combine acupuncture with other manual techniques and a good home exercise program. The results are exceptional.
