Stretching movements are the foundation for a frozen shoulder physical therapy program. Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) stretching exercises implemented on a daily basis can considerably cut down recovery times and recover range of motion to the disorder that can last up to years, if left resolving naturally. The excuse is the disorder is as a consequence of coarse and thickened scars of the capsule membrane surrounding the rotator cuff called adhesions. There is not a clear indication as to why the adhesions develop, though there are links to diabetes and being overweight, but not necessarily so.
The disorder develops in phases a freezing phase higher pain but movement still possible, a frozen phase by having a dull pain as well as the infamous partial immobility that a frozen shoulder implies and finally a thawing phase, in which the adhesions naturally get rid of. However, it can be up to years before a frozen shoulder resolves, during which time the sufferer has to contend with anti inflammatory medication, ultrasound, hot packs and even cortisone injections or manipulation. These treatments have all their time and place, but a professional frozen shoulder rehab should be the core of a rehabilitation strategy.
The therapy consist mainly of stretching movements and rom exercises performed very gradually but consistently, as dedication is really a key factor for success of the proper treatment. The sessions can be performed for half an hour a day along with hot packs before sessions and cold packs after. Hot temperature helps slow down the adhesion, while cold temperature helps relieve the inflammation caused by the exercising. Other treatments like ultra sound require multiple surgery appointments and tend to be simply mildly effective, while manipulation can be ignored in all however the most sever carrying cases.
