Moving Past the Freeze: Exercise for Easing Frozen Shoulder

February 19, 2024

Do you find yourself struggling with a frozen shoulder, making simple tasks like reaching for a cup or getting dressed painful and challenging? Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, can be a frustrating condition, but there is hope. As an exercise physiology and physiotherapy service, A FISIO is here to share how exercise can help you regain mobility and treat your shoulder stiffness.

Understanding Frozen Shoulder

Frozen shoulder occurs when the connective tissue surrounding the shoulder joint becomes thickened and tight, leading to pain and restricted movement. It often develops gradually and can be caused by factors such as injury, surgery, or underlying medical conditions. While it may feel like an uphill battle, targeted exercises can play a crucial role in restoring function and alleviating discomfort.

The Power of Exercise Physiology

Exercise physiology focuses on the body’s response to physical activity and exercise, making it a valuable tool in managing conditions like frozen shoulders. By implementing specific exercises that target shoulder mobility, strength, and flexibility, we can gradually loosen the tissues and gradually expose them to increasing ranges of motion. Additionally, exercise helps promote blood flow to the affected area, speeding up the healing process.

Designing Your Recovery Plan

Recovering from a frozen shoulder requires a tailored approach that addresses your unique needs and limitations. We can work closely with you to develop a customised exercise program that gradually increases in intensity and difficulty as your shoulder improves. From gentle stretches to resistance training, each exercise will be carefully selected to promote healing and restore full function.

Taking the Next Step

Don’t let a frozen shoulder keep you sidelined any longer. With the guidance of our experienced team at A FISIO, you can take proactive steps towards reclaiming your mobility and independence. Schedule a consultation today to learn how exercise can help you move past the freeze, reclaiming your strength and function.
