What is Frozen Shoulder?
frozen shoulder

Frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis is a common source of shoulder pain. 

While frozen shoulder is commonly missed or confused with a rotator cuff injury, it has a distinct pattern of symptoms resulting in severe shoulder pain, loss of shoulder function and eventually stiffness.

The more precise medical term for a frozen shoulder is Flexion > Internal Rotation. Normally, your rotator cuff strength will still be normal with the exception of pain inhibition. Frozen shoulders are commonly non-tender on palpation examination due to the pathology being quite deep. Quick movements are very painful with patients very keen to avoid any fast movements such as reaching or throwing and catching. Who is Likely to Suffer from Frozen Shoulder? Frozen shoulder is more likely to occur in people who are 35-50 years old. It can be primary, with no known cause, or secondary, associated with an underlying illness or injury. There are a number of risk factors predisposing you to developing frozen shoulder. These include: shoulder trauma, surgery, diabetes, inflammatory conditions, inactivity of the shoulder, autoimmune disease, cervical cancer, and hyperthyroidism. Approximately 20% of people who have had a frozen shoulder will also develop frozen shoulder in their other shoulder in the future. Frozen Shoulder Treatment Physiotherapy treatment for frozen shoulder depends on what stage you are in, and is tailored to your specific needs. 1. Freezing Pain relieving techniques including gentle shoulder mobilisation, muscle releases, acupuncture, dry needling and kinesiology taping for pain-relief can assist during this painful inflammation phase. Intracapsular corticosteroid injection is considered when pain is unbearable. It is important not to aggravate a frozen shoulder during this phase, which is unfortunately a side effect of an overzealous practitioner. 2. Frozen Shoulder joint mobilisation and stretches, muscle release techniques, acupuncture, dry needling and exercises to regain range and strength are useful for a prompt return to function. Care must be taken not to introduce any exercises that are too aggressive. Overenthusiastic treatment can aggravate your capsular synovitis and subsequently pain. A quality shoulder physiotherapist will know how much is enough and how much is too much. 3. Thawing Shoulder mobilisation and stretches are your best chance of a prompt return to full shoulder movement. As your range of motion increases your physiotherapist will be able to provide you with strengthening exercises to control and maintain your newly found range of movement. Can You Prevent Frozen Shoulder? While the spontaneous onset frozen shoulder is of unknown origin, you can prevent frozen shoulder caused by disuse by avoiding long period of shoulder inactivity. eg post-surgery or shoulder injury. If you do have a shoulder or arm injury, it is always advisable to seek the professional advice of someone such as your shoulder physiotherapist about exercises to help prevent a secondary frozen shoulder developing. This is especially important if you are in a high risk category. For more information, please contact your physiotherapist.

What is Frozen Shoulder? frozen shoulder Frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis is a common source of shoulder pain. While frozen shoulder is commonly missed or confused with a rotator cuff injury, it has a distinct pattern of symptoms resulting in severe shoulder pain, loss of shoulder function and eventually stiffness. The more precise medical term for a frozen shoulder is "adhesive capsulitis". In basic terms, it means that your shoulder pain and stiffness is a result of shoulder capsule inflammation (capsulitis) and fibrotic adhesions that limit your shoulder movement. What Causes Frozen Shoulder? Unfortunately, there is still much unknown about frozen shoulder. One of those unknowns is why frozen shoulder starts. There are many theories but the medical community still debates what actually causes frozen shoulder. What is Known about Frozen Shoulder? Frozen shoulder causes your shoulder joint capsule to shrink, which leads to pain and reduced range of shoulder movement. Your shoulder capsule is the deepest layer of soft tissue around your shoulder joint, and plays a major role in keeping your humerus within the shoulder socket. frozen shoulder What are Frozen Shoulder Symptoms? Frozen shoulder has three stages, each of which has different symptoms. The 3 Stages are: Freezing – characterised by pain around the shoulder initially, followed by a progressive loss of range of movement. Known as the RED phase due to the capsule colour if you undergo arthroscopic surgery. Frozen – minimal pain, with no further loss or regain of range. Known as the PINK phase due to the capsule colour if you undergo arthroscopic surgery. Thawing – gradual return of range of movement, some weakness due to disuse of the shoulder. Known as the WHITE phase due to the capsule colour if you undergo arthroscopic surgery. Each stage can last on average 6 to 8 months if left untreated. How is Frozen Shoulder Diagnosed? Frozen shoulder can be diagnosed in the clinic from your clinical signs and symptoms. A clinical diagnosis of frozen shoulder can be determined by a thorough shoulder examination. Your physiotherapist will ask about what physical activities you are having difficulty performing. Common issues include: Unable to reach above shoulder height Unable to throw a ball Unable to quickly reach for something Unable to reach behind your back eg bra or tuck shirt Unable to reach out to your side and behind. eg reach for seat belt Unable to sleep on your side. In some cases you may be referred for X-rays or MRI to rule out other causes of shoulder pain. X-rays are not able to diagnose frozen shoulder. MRI or preferably MRA can provide a definitive diagnosis. A double-contrast shoulder arthrography is the traditional diagnostic method, although this is usually not required if you have a skilled shoulder practitioner assessing you. Frozen shoulder is commonly misdiagnosed or confused with rotator cuff injury by inexperienced shoulder practitioners. It is important to get an accurate diagnosis since the treatment and recovery vary considerably. Frozen Shoulder Physical Examination Your physiotherapist will ask you to perform shoulder movements. Frozen shoulder has a distinct capsular pattern of stiffness: Lateral Rotation > Flexion > Internal Rotation. Normally, your rotator cuff strength will still be normal with the exception of pain inhibition.

CALF MUSCLE PAIN The body region commonly referred to as the calf is in the back of the leg, just below the knee. To better understand potential causes of calf pain, let's first review the anatomy of your calves. The calf is made of three major muscles: the two gastrocnemius muscles (medial and lateral) and the soleus muscle. Another smaller muscle called the plantaris muscle is also present. There are also two bones in the calf region, the larger tibia, and the smaller fibula. Issues with any of these could cause calf pain. Causes of Calf Injury While muscle injuries are the most common cause of calf pain, there are others that may stem from circulation problems, knee joint problems, and other conditions. Determining the cause of your calf pain can help guide appropriate treatment. Some of the more common causes include: Calf Muscle Strain: This is the most common cause of acute onset calf pain. Usually, this injury occurs during a sports or exercise activity. Common symptoms of a calf strain include pain, swelling, and bruising. Medial Gastrocnemius Strain: The medial gastrocnemius is the part of the calf muscle most commonly injured. The medial head of the gastrocnemius is one of the three major calf muscles that is the source of pain when the calf muscle is strained. Plantaris Muscle Rupture: The plantaris muscle is a thin, small muscle that is not even present in about 10 percent to 20 percent of the population. The muscle runs along the gastrocnemius muscle but is a tiny fraction of the size. The plantaris muscle can rupture, causing a sudden, snapping pain in the back of the leg. Because the muscle is of no functional importance, treatment is non-operative. Achilles Tendonitis/Rupture: The Achilles tendon is the connection between the calf muscles and the heel. Calf pain is usually considered pain in the softer, muscular portion of the lower leg, whereas an Achilles tendon rupture typically causes pain in the back of the heel. Achilles ruptures that occur higher up on the tendon should be considered when evaluating calf pain. Baker's Cyst: A Baker's cyst is not a true cyst. Rather, it is a collection of knee-joint fluid that has pooled in the back of the knee. When excessive amounts of fluid accumulate, it can cause pain in the back of the leg. Occasionally, the Baker's cyst will rupture, causing the fluid to enter the calf region. Blood Clots: A blood clot needs to be considered as a cause of calf pain, especially when the calf pain is not the immediate result of an injury. Blood clots can form in the deep veins of the leg, causing a blockage in circulation. This may cause swelling and pain in the calf. Blood clots are more common in the days and weeks after injuries and surgical procedures. Knowing if you have a blood clot is important. Without treatment, the clot can travel to the lungs, causing difficulty breathing. Leg Cramps: Cramps in the leg muscles are a common cause of calf pain. Usually, the symptoms are intermittent (not constant pain) and relieved by stretching and heat application. When Should I See a Doctor? If you are unsure of the cause of your symptoms, or if you do not know the specific treatment recommendations for your condition, you should seek medical attention. Treatment of calf pain must be directed at the specific cause of your problem. Some signs that you should be seen by a doctor include Inability to walk comfortably on the affected side Injury that causes deformity of the lower leg Calf pain that occurs at night or while resting Calf pain that persists beyond a few days Swelling of the calf or ankle joint area Signs of an infection, including fever, redness, warmth Any other unusual symptoms Treatments for Calf Pain Treatment of calf pain depends entirely on the cause of the problem. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that you understand the cause of your symptoms before embarking on a treatment program. If you are unsure of your diagnosis, or how severe your condition is, you should seek medical advice before beginning any treatment plan. Some common treatments for calf pain are listed here. Not all of these treatments are appropriate for every condition, but they may be helpful in your situation. Rest: The first treatment in most cases is to rest the muscles and allow the acute inflammation to subside. Often this is the only step needed to relieve calf pain. If the symptoms are severe, crutches may be helpful as well. Ice and Heat Application: Ice packs and heat pads are among the most commonly used treatments for calf pain. Depending on your situation, one may be better to use than the other. You should also know how to properly use them for pain. Stretching: Stretching the muscles and tendons of the calf can help with some causes of calf pain. A good routine should be established. Learning the basics will help you on your way. PhysioTherapy: Physiotherapy is an important aspect of treatment of almost all orthopedic conditions. Physiotherapists use different techniques to increase strength, regain mobility, and help return patients to their pre-injury level of activity. Anti-Inflammatory Medication: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, commonly referred to as NSAIDs, are some of the most commonly prescribed medications, especially for patients with calf pain caused by acute inflammation.

Cervicobrachial Neuralgia In simple terms, cervicobrachial neuralgia can be described as neck pain radiating to the arm because of compression to the nerve roots in the cervical spinal cord. The cervical spinal cord is the section of the spine comprised of the first seven vertebrae and its associated intervertebral discs as well as the spinal cord the vertebrae protect; this is the area we call the neck. ‘Cervicobrachial’ literally means relating to the neck and arm, while ‘brachial neuralgia’ usually refers to the pain associated with a brachial plexus injury. A plexus is the name for a group of nerve fibres and the brachial plexus runs from the spine, through the neck, the axilla or underarm, and into the arm. Because all of the nerves that control the arm come from thie brachial plexus, a problem with the plexus could lead to severe impairment. Risk Factors and Causes of Cervicobrachial Neuralgia Cervicobrachial neuralgia can be either inherited or acquired. The pain is usually brought on by the damage of a nerve or compression to the brachial plexus as the result of an injury. Research has shown that those that are suffering from depression or anxiety are at a higher risk for developing cervicobrachial neuralgia. Many studies are also pointing towards an association between the disorder and tendonitis of the upper limb. It is not unusual to see algodystrophy of the shoulder in the same cases as cervicobrachial neuralgia. In rare cases, the disorder is caused by a vertebral artery loop formation. Symptoms of Cervicobrachial Neuralgia ‘Neuralgia’ actually describes the sort of pain that is common with the disorder. It is a catch-all term that describes a shooting, burning, stabbing pain, electric-like shocks, and a tingling sensation all co-existing. This pain is usually brief but severe. This pain can come from the shoulder or the neck. In addition, there can be muscle weakness in the arm, a loss of sensation anywhere from the arm up to the neck, and more intense pain at night. If left untreated, these symptoms could go on for upwards of a year, so it is best to consult a doctor if these symptoms last more than a few days. Diagnosis and Treatment of Cervicobrachial Neuralgia Your doctor will be able to make a diagnosis based on your medical history, a description of your symptoms and a physical examination. The doctor may also order an MRI or a CT scan, which can confirm the compression of the nerve roots at the spinal cord level. Treatment for cercivobrachial neuralgia will depend on the severity of the problem. For less severe cases, it may be a matter of pain management with anti-inflammatory or pain medications until the pain begins to subside.
