What Is Frozen shoulder?
Frozen shoulder is a condition characterized by stiffness and pain in shoulder joint. It is also known as adhesive capsulitis. It hampers the day-to-day activity of an individual.
A sharp pain in the shoulder and inability to lift the arm over the head is termed as "Frozen Shoulder." As a result, shoulder movements become reduced, sometimes completely ‘frozen’.
The risk of developing frozen shoulder increases if a person is recovering from a medical condition that prevents him from moving his arms such as diabetes, mastectomy or stroke.
What Are The Symptoms Of Frozen Shoulder?
Frozen shoulder develops in three stages. The three stages of frozen shoulder are:
In the first stage, there is a pain in the shoulder due to the movement. The motion range of shoulder becomes limited in this stage.
In the second stage, the shoulders become stiffer but pain may begin to diminish during this stage.
In the third stage, the range of motion of the shoulder begins to improve. The pain and stiffness gradually diminish and movement gradually returns to normal. The duration of this stage is between six months and two years.
What Are The Causes Of Frozen Shoulder?
It is a result of scarring, thickening and shrinkage of the joint capsule.
The shoulder joint is made up of bones, ligaments and tendon which are encased in the capsule of connective tissue. This capsule is the deepest layer of the soft tissue around the shoulder joint and plays a major role in keeping the humerus bone within the shoulder socket.
It occurs when this capsule begins to thicken and tightens around the shoulder joint and restricts its movement.
People who have certain diseases such as diabetes, hyperthyroidism (over-active thyroid), hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid), cardiovascular disease, tuberculosis, Parkinson’s disease more prone to develop frozen shoulder.
Frozen Shoulder According To Ayurveda
In Ayurveda, it is known as ‘Apabahuka’ which usually affects shoulder joint. It is caused due to the vitiation of Vata and Kapha dosha according to Ayurveda. The wasting of the shoulder is considered as the preliminary stage of this disease.
Because of the involvement of Kapha dosha, in many patients, cold exposure and during night time, the stiffness worsens.
Diagnosis And Treatment
It can be diagnosed by physical examination. It affects both active and passive range of motion.
Sometimes, the doctor may inject the shoulder with numbing medicine to determine the passive and active range of motion.
What Is The Treatment Of Frozen Shoulder?
Modern medicine prescribes medicines for reducing pain and preserving as much range of motion in the shoulder as possible.
Various surgical procedures and steroid injections are prescribed.
According to Ayurveda, the treatment of frozen shoulder will vary depending on the stage, the severity of the pain and stiffness. In the initial stages, the main focus of the treatment is to relieve pain.
