What is a Frozen Shoulder?

The shoulder structure comprises three bones and makes up a ball & socket joint. The bones that make up the shoulder are; scapula, clavicle, and humerus. This particular area has a tissue surrounding it, which is termed as a “shoulder capsule.”

In the case of frozen shoulders, this capsule becomes very thick and tight and thus it is very hard to move it. This condition is very painful but BioFlex Pakistan has a very effective treatment for Frozen shoulders and many more diseases.

Frozen shoulder stages

There are two main “Frozen Shoulders” stages listed ahead in detail:

Primary Frozen Shoulder

Primary frozen shoulder is also known as “primary adhesive capsulitis”. It can result from immune system changes and hormonal imbalance. Patients with diabetes, neurological diseases, and cardiovascular disorders are usually at high risk of developing it.

Secondary Frozen Shoulder

Secondary frozen shoulder is also termed as “secondary adhesive capsulitis or acquired adhesive capsulitis.” It can develop from the long-term immobility of a patient. Stiffness and shoulder injury can also play an important role in developing it.

    Frozen Shoulder causes

    A few of the reasons you might be suffering from the frozen shoulder are:

    • Women are more affected than men
    • 40-60 age period is at high risk
    • Recovering from stroke
    • Healing wounds of mastectomy
    • Diabatic patients
    • Heart diseases
    • Thyroid imbalance
    • Rotator cuff injury
    • Broken arm
    • Tuberculosis
    • Cardiovascular issues
    • Parkinson’s disease

    Frozen Shoulder symptoms

    The signs and symptoms of a Frozen shoulder may include:

    • Stiffness
    • Pain
    • Difficulty in movement
    • Hard to sleep on affected side
    • Dull pain
    • Shoulder muscle disturbance
    • Worse symptoms at night
    • Difficulty in sleeping
    • Limited shoulder movement

    All these symptoms usually last from 2 months to 6 months and they become worse at night making it very difficult for the person to sleep.

    Frozen Shoulder Treatment Options

    There are many different modes of frozen shoulder treatment which include:


    NSAIDs like ibuprofen or aspirin that help in relieving inflammation and pain are advised.

    Physical therapy

    Physical therapy where you perform stretching and strengthening exercises for improvement in range of motion.

    Corticosteroid injections

    Corticosteroid injection for reduction of painful sensation and improved joint movement for better range of motion.

    Joint Distension

    Joint distension where sterile water is injected within the shoulder capsule for stretching effect.

    Shoulder Manipulation
    Shoulder manipulation is now rarely performed by doctors as it results in an increased chance of fracture. During this treatment, general anesthesia is applied by the doctor to make the patient unconscious and then the shoulder joint is manipulated in different directions to loosen up the tight tissues.

    Surgical Procedure

    Arthroscopic surgery is rarely performed for the frozen shoulder if other treatment options have failed. The doctors perform the surgery with a lighted instrument that is inserted and then small incisions are performed over the joint. During this surgery, adhesions and scar tissue are removed from within the shoulder joint to allow joint movement.

    Laser Therapy For Frozen Shoulder

    Laser therapy for frozen shoulder is a newer alternative that helps in treating the frozen shoulder without experiencing additional pain, and without any medications involved.
    BioFlex Pakistan has healed frozen shoulders in our clients and is implementing an outstanding and effective treatment for many other medical conditions by introducing sophisticated cold laser technology in Pakistan.
    Laser therapy for frozen shoulder works in such a way that it uses a beam of light to knock out protons from body cells and thus physiological reactions are initiated. Physiological reactions lead to increased ATP formation and enhanced cellular metabolism which helps in speeding up healing.
