Get Treatment For Your Frozen Shoulder
Frozen shoulder, is also known as adhesive capsulitis. It is a condition characterized by stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint. The signs and symptoms typically begin gradually, and may worsen over time. Physical therapy can help by focusing on shoulder flexibility. Physical Therapy fro adhesive capsulitis is the primary treatment recommendation for frozen shoulder. Women and Diabetics are at a higher risk for developing frozen shoulder.
Frozen shoulder creates a thickening of the capsule causing it to become very stiff and tight. Tissue adhesions can begin to develop further worsening this condition causing a loss of range of motion and difficulty moving your arm. There are three stages of frozen shoulder.
Stage one is called the “freezing” stage when you have increasing pain levels and a loss of motion. It can typically last from 6 weeks up to 9 months. The second stage is called the “frozen” stage where you can feel improvements with your pain levels, however you continue to have a loss of range of motion. This stage typically lasts from 4 to 6 months. The third stage is called “thawing” stage. This is where shoulder motion slowly improves, however complete return to normal strength and motion can can up to 2 years.
Imaging such as X-rays, Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), or Ultrasound can show you the extent of tissue damage or if there is anything else that is affected such as rotator cuff or even a labral tear. Your doctor or physical therapist can review these finding with you and come up with a plan for you to treat your frozen shoulder. Non-surgical treatment can include Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) medicines. Drugs like aspirin and ibuprofen reduce pain and swelling. Steroid injections can potentially help with pain levels and inflammation. Physical therapy has been show to be an effective treatment for frozen shoulder.

As a lifelong athlete, I’ve experienced a wide array of sports-related injuries. In fact, my interest in this profession was sparked at just eighteen years-old, when I received physical therapy for a shoulder injury incurred while playing football. Later, I achieved my Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) from the University of the Sciences of Philadelphia.
I employ a holistic, evidence-based approach to my treatment, taking a full assessment of your status and needs to design the perfect plan for your body and circumstances. I use research-driven methods to help you achieve your physical therapy goals. I am detail-oriented, innovative, highly knowledgeable in biomechanics, and a fantastic problem-solver. I operate on three principles: honesty, perseverance, and resilience.
