How To Cure Your Frozen Shoulder With These Easy Steps

Frozen shoulder is a serious condition that affects your shoulder joint. Older woman are most likely to be affected than other group. Approximately two percent of the entire population will have this condition in some time of their lives.
People with frozen shoulder syndrome usually suffer for approximately two years. They normally don't retain only 90% shoulder range of motion and lose 80% strength. Frozen shoulder has unique stages of recovery. They are:
  • Acute Stage (2 to 9 months)
This is when pain is at it's worse. Performing daily activities can be torturous and the patient is deprived of sleep. It is important you visit your GP (General Practitioner) as soon as possible so that he/she prescribe you with NSAID (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug) to relieve your inflammation and pain. It is best not to do any overhead movements and lifting during this period as it may aggravate your symptoms.
  • Stiff - Secondary Phase (4 to 12 months)
You should feel your pain subside but your joint will stiffen up. Putting bra on or turning a car wheel is difficult and slow. During this period, it is important you do strengthening and stretching exercises at least two to three times a day.
  • Recovery Phase (5 to 26 months)
Your shoulder will gradually "loosen up" and pain wouldn't be a problem anymore. Continue doing the shoulder exercises but the focus should be more on co-ordination.
Overall, it would take a patient one to two years for the condition to be resolved. Don't lose hope and keep on doing your exercises everyday.
