Frozen shoulder can severely restrict your ability to carry out some everyday tasks, and can last for 2-3 years without treatment. However, a well-targeted course of massage treatment can help speed up your recovery by quite a few months, and reduce pain and discomfort.
Aware that this is a common complaint, Benedetta recently undertook a specialist massage course on treating shoulder girdle pain, including frozen shoulder.
Essential to effective treatment is a diagnosis so that she can work out which muscles might be the problem and need to be worked on. Questions Benedetta will ask you during the consultation include:
- Where is the pain at the moment?
- What movement or action makes it worse?
- How long has it been going on?
- What caused the problem? if known
- Have you been to the doctor and been diagnosed?
- Have you had an x-ray or MRI scan?
She will also give you stretching homework and teach you how to do trigger point therapy yourself, along with appropriate application of heat, cold, or both.
