During this freezing process, the scapula and the rest of the shoulder take over, which hides the condition. As this happens, the shoulder becomes tight and painful throughout motion. In many situations, inflammation plays a huge part when the shoulder goes through movement. As inflammation sets in, the natural space in the joint closes in, causing the pain.
Most conditions have a cure or the ability to maintain. In this case of a frozen shoulder, it may heal on its own. Sometimes a doctor will explore with an arthroscope to get a hands on look with possible side injuries. Scar tissue can be removed or broke up to increase ROM pain. No matter what happens, a PT will be involved.
The best way to prevent a frozen shoulder is proper posture. An easy way to self test yourself is to stand with your back to the wall and press both shoulders to the wall. Make sure that the back is also pressing against the wall. If this cannot be accomplished, chest muscles must be stretched while strengthening the posterior muscles. Two exercises that will work those muscle groups is the row and lat pulldown. PT will cover specific exercises that needs to be done.
Be careful, the shoulder is very complex and certain exercises are needed to work other body parts. Check with your doctor, this may be a simple fix that can be done at home or with a trainer. Ask your doctor to be evaluated by a PT. After working with a physical therapist, get papers with suggested exercises that can be done.
Remember, the body responds the way you treat it. The body has a way for you to not ignore it. This is pain. Always listen to your body because you have one and only one. So live well, have fun and live your life the way that you should. You don't have to worry, you can feel when there is something wrong. Just think, every flood happens after a small puddle.
