Treatment for Frozen Shoulder in Geelong
What is Frozen Shoulder?
What Causes Frozen Shoulder?
Frozen Shoulder is found to occur in those who have had to restrict the movement of their arm for a long period of time either due to injury, pain, surgery like mastectomy or chronic health conditions such diabetes or a stroke. People between the ages of 40 to 70 years old are more prone to getting diagnosed with Frozen Shoulder and the condition affects postmenopausal women more than men.
When to Seek Treatment for Frozen Shoulder?
Bowen Therapy treatment can be very effective at reducing the pain experienced with frozen shoulder, improving the range of movement, and considerably shortening the recovery period. Bowen therapy works to release the layers of connective tissue (fascia) that are sticking together, causing the frozen shoulder, and improvement is usually experienced after the first session.
In a Study done on the effectiveness of Bowen Therapy on Frozen shoulder by the Clinical Nursing Practice Research Unit at the University of Central Lancashire in Preston (UK), the Median 'worst pain' pre-therapy score reduced from 7 (mean 7, range 1-10) to a median 'worst pain' score of 1 (mean 1.45, range 0-5) post-therapy. It was found that all participants of the trail experienced improvement in their daily activities, even those with a very longstanding history of frozen shoulder.
