Frozen Shoulder Treatments
Frozen shoulder is treated with a special technique called neurologic reflexive inhibition which was developed by Dr. Chalmers. This technique address the most common cause of frozen shoulder which is muscular dysfunction in the shoulder that leads to instability, dysfunction and pain. The frozen shoulder process normally comes on gradually over time so the changes in the muscles are not noticed. The treatment process normally takes 3-5 weeks and has been very successful at resetting the muscles and freeing up the joint. Most people feel a change after the first week of care.
Frozen Shoulder Causes
It’s not clear what causes frozen shoulder, but some people are at greater risk of developing it. Women are more prone to developing frozen shoulder than men. Those between the ages of 40 and 60 (both women and men) are also more likely to develop it.
People with certain medical conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, thyroid disease, and Parkinson’s disease are also at increased risk, as are those who are recovering from certain types of surgery (such as a mastectomy).
NRI (Neurologic Reflexive Inhibition) is an alternative to more invasive standard treatments and often provides complete relief of symptoms. And, this therapy has been shown in studies to improve frozen shoulder symptoms.
