Frozen Shoulder Breakthrough: New Exercises For Frozen Shoulder
Dr. Evan Brogue, a surgeon at Johns Hopkins, has been busy spreading good news to his patients who suffer from frozen shoulder. Frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis is a debilitating disorder that affects over 300,000 Americans each year. DR. Brogue has developed , over the years a series of exercises that alleviate, and in some cases completely cure frozen shoulder
“Exercises for Frozen Shoulder are basically small, simple movements that if done properly and consistently, contribute greatly to the healing of this painful, debilitating condition.” States Dr. Brogue
Medically referred to as adhesive capsulitis, the disease is caused by the inflammation of tissue around the shoulder joint. Additionally, abnormal bands of tissue called adhesions form in the area, and the effect is restricted motion and shoulder pain.
Dr. Brogue continues “Arm dominance seems to have no bearing on the disease, as right shoulder pain happens more or less as often as right shoulder pain. It also afflicts men and women equally, mostly within the 40 to 60 age group.”
When asked about Yoga for frozen shoulder, Dr. Brogue has this to say: “Although there are such things as yoga exercises for Frozen Shoulder and other more advanced therapies, simple stretches still work. The keys to any of these exercises is to adequately warm up the affected area first, and then apply the movements in a gentle, controlled way so as not overstress the tissues and make things worse instead of better.”
The recommended warm-up method according to Dr. Brogue “Is to take a hot bath or shower for 10 to 15 minutes, focusing especially on the affected shoulder. Afterwards, while still warm, start performing the stretches. Start with small movements, moving the arm no more than a foot. If you feel increased pain, stop immediately as this could mean that you are overstressing tissues, or that your condition is not Frozen Shoulder at all but something with similar symptoms but which require a different kind of treatment or therapy.”
”Do your warm up, then immediately perform simple stretches and exercises for Frozen Shoulder to make the most of the treatment, and you should be back to normal before very long,” that is what the Good Doctor recommends.
