Frozen Shoulder

Adhesive Capsulitis aka "Frozen Shoulder"

What is Frozen Shoulder? When the connective tissues that surround the bony structures of the shoulder joint become stiff and painful causing severe immobilization when left untreated, it can cause serious complications in a person's daily activities. Most of the time pain is relieved temporarily with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or stronger pain medication. There are alternative therapies such as dry needling, myotherapy, and cupping therapy that can help with reducing pain and increasing the mobility of the joint.

Cupping Therapy- It can help! When treating and healing Frozen Shoulder, it is good to add in cupping therapy into your regimen. Tissues are pulled up into the cup and stretched; fresh blood is drawn into the area to help heal. Cupping helps breakup micro-adhesions within the muscle fibers and fascia to improve the flexibility of the shoulder tissues and range of motion. Cupping help create new blood flow to the area to optimize the healing process. Cupping can relax the shoulder muscles and tissues. Cupping also stimulates the body's immune system to clean up damaged tissues.
