Heal your frozen shoulder without medication or surgery.

 

What is frozen shoulder

Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a painful condition where the joint capsule that joins the arms and shoulder becomes inflamed and rigid.

Why does it happen?

Frozen shoulder is thought to be an incorrect reaction or over-reaction by our body's attempt to heal a shoulder injury.

Does it get better?

Frozen shoulder is described as a "self limiting condition", which means that given enough time and discomfort, it will get better on its own. 

  • Stage 1: Freezing  
    • Extremely painful
    • Slowly gets stiff
    • Lasts weeks to months
  • Stage 2: Frozen
    • Painful but slowly improves
    • Very stiff
    • Lasts months
  • Stage 3: Thawing
    • Slowly gets less stiff
    • Lasts months to years

What can we do to help?

You probably do not want to let years pass by without being able to reach up, pick up your child, reach behind your back, and so much more. 

We use a combination of physical therapy and holistic techniques to provide a natural, non-invasive, no-medication way to improve frozen shoulder very quickly.

  • Yu Family Acupressure - A traditional technique to reduce pain and promote healing
  • Myofascial decompression "Cupping" - Promotes thawing and healing
  • Exercise - Simple stretches and movements to restore your flexibility and strength

How long will it take?

Each visit lasts 30 minutes and you can expect to see tremendous improvement in 2 visits.

How much does it cost?

For our frozen shoulder program we charge just $50 per visit. 

Do you take insurance?

We accept most PPO insurance for our physical therapy services. But our frozen shoulder program is designed to be accessible, affordable, and convenient for you and for us. In many cases, today's insurance deductibles and copay will exceed the cost of this program. If you would like, we can check your insurance on your behalf regarding the cost.

DOES the treatment hurt?

The treatment causes mild discomfort comparable to a strong massage. It is much less painful than manipulation or mobilization commonly done in other treatments for frozen shoulder.

Are you sure this will work?

Frozen shoulder typically responds very well to our treatment within 1 or 2 visits. But there are many other conditions that causes pain and stiffness at the shoulder. We will examine your shoulder closely on your first visit to make sure you are a good match for our treatment.
