Frozen Shoulder - The Importance of Movement

Posted by Arnold Fomo on

    With a frozen shoulder it's always beneficial to get started as soon as possible with regular, gentle exercises. The last thing you feel like doing if you have a frozen shoulder is moving it! However, the reality is that it is very important to keep the shoulder moving as much as possible. Admittedly there are times when the shoulder is so acutely painful that all you can do is rest and put ice onto it. But it is beneficial to get started as soon as possible with regular, gentle exercises. These will help to: • Aid the recovery and...

NAT - Frozen Shoulder Case History

Posted by Simeon Niel Asher on

  Thanks to Dr. Bates and NAT, I got my life back... Traditional approaches to the frozen shoulder either address the inflammation (steroid tablets, steroid injections and hydrodilatation) or the stiffness (physical therapy, exercise therapy and surgical manipulation). Some therapists will attempt to improve the range of motion by forcing the shoulder through the blockage; this in our opinion can make the condition considerably worse. How does NAT work?NAT works differently. We keep the arm still whilst we apply a sequence of pressure points to specific tissues. The treatment can still be painful, especially in the early freezing phase, but it...

Trigger Point Therapy - Common Shoulder Treatment Sequence

Posted by Arnold Fomo on

Shoulder problems affect 25% of the population. Trigger point therapy can be very effective for treating a range of shoulder pain issues. There are well documented protocols for treating rotator cuff tendinopathy, tendonitis, bursitis, and frozen shoulder syndrome.

Treating the Frozen Shoulder - RRE Method

Posted by Arnold Fomo on

The Reynolds Rehabilitation (RRE) approach to treating frozen shoulder has  evolved over several years and has primarily been influenced by the pioneering work of Simeon Niel-Asher. Adhesive capsulitis, or frozen shoulder, is an inflammatory condition of the glenohumeral (ball and socket) joint that is characterized by varying degrees of stiffness and pain. Adhesive capsulitis is somewhat of misnomer as many cases of frozen shoulder can be attributed to myofascial trigger points in muscles around the shoulder complex rather than to the glenohumeral capsule itself (Travell and Simons, 1983). Much controversy exists regarding the diagnosis and treatment of frozen shoulder and...

Frozen Shoulder - Can Your Diet Make a Difference?

Posted by Arnold Fomo on

  There’s a lot of “talk” about nutrition and frozen shoulder. Does any of it make sense? Is there any connection between what you eat and the chances of you getting frozen shoulder? Are there any foods that can help with treatment and recovery? In this article we take a look at some of the common myths and hope to clear up some of the confusion.Are there any foods that can help prevent the onset of frozen shoulder?We live in an age where we are all increasingly aware of the basics of healthy eating and as a result, our clinicians are increasingly asked if...
