Frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis is stiffness, pain, usually intense, together with a limited range of movement in your shoulder. A frozen shoulder can develop when you stop using the joint normally because of pain, injury, or a chronic health condition, such as diabetes or a stroke. Any shoulder problem can lead to frozen shoulder if you do not work to keep full range of motion.
The tissues around the joint stiffen, scar tissue forms, and shoulder movements become difficult and painful.
Frozen shoulder occurs:
- After surgery or injury.
- Most often in people 40 to 70 years old.
- More often in women (especially in postmenopausal women) than in men.
- Most often in people with chronic diseases.
It’s estimated that up to 1 in 20 people in the UK may be affected by frozen shoulder at some point in their life.
In clinic I see shoulder issues virtually every day and can speak from personally experience of how painful and restricting to daily life not being able to move your shoulder can be.
Below are a few comments from clients over the years who have all found the Bowen therapy has helped and resolved their shoulder issues!
“Well you’ve done it again. The last 2 mornings I’ve woken with no pain in my shoulder or arm. It’s so lovely 🙂 You’ll know how horrid it is waking in pain and the bad start it makes to the day.
Thank you, thank you”.
“Just wanted to say a big thank you for fixing me again. Came into the clinic yesterday with back and shoulder pain, 3 hours after treatment pain significantly reduced and this morning TOTALLY pain free”.
“Quick email to say how fantastic bowen therapy has been for me. It has stopped my migraines and fixed my shoulder both of which were causing me to have time off work.
It is amazing how it works… but it definitely does!! I would and already have recommended your services.
Couldn’t have met a more friendly person and the service you supply in Bowen therapy is second to none.
My kind thanks again.”
Last year a client attended the clinic suffering from intense shoulder pain and very restricted movement. During the first session of Bowen full range of movement was restored, however the pain remained.
Coming for a short course of sessions in the run up to Christmas and each time reporting only an improvement in pain levels, I advised the client to then have a three week break to give the work time to become established.
Today I have received a text from the client saying that following the advised break, she is now pain free!
Client came back to the clinic this afternoon after his first session of Bowen therapy, seeking help with a shoulder issue that has been a “nagging” pain for longer than he cares to remember.
When asked how he had been he reported “the night after the treatment I was woken in the middle of the night by a very intense pain that lasted a couple of hours, but since then I have not had a single pain, ache or twinge in it. It is quite remarkable, oh and my neck and lower back are much better too!”
11 days ago a new client arrived at the clinic crying due to the pain in her back. Also suffering from a history of painful arms and shoulders, she has just returned to the clinic.
In 11 days she has taken just one pain killer for the back pain and has had no pains in her arms or shoulders!
Great results so far in the clinic this morning – a ‘frozen’ shoulder moving for the first time in 6 months.
A client has just told me that they are going to cancel the planned injection into their ‘frozen’ shoulder, as thanks to Bowen therapy, they no longer need it!
You may remember this client who came to see if Bowen therapy could prevent him having to undergo further shoulder surgery.
He came in today for a ‘top up’ and when asked how he was replied, “someone only asked me yesterday how my shoulders were and I suddenly realised I don’t even think about them anymore. I simply cannot thank you enough!”
So why accept that you have to live with pain? I refused too and thanks to Bowen therapy am now pain free.
