Is frozen shoulder harmful? Won't it heal by itself? Should I consult a specialist? Is surgery the only available option? If these are the questions that keep bothering you now and then, here is the good news for you! There is no need for surgery. Frozen shoulder can heal by itself and provide permanent relief from symptoms. Medica Stem Cells therapy will help in treating the shoulder joint by itself. Let us understand the causes and symptoms of frozen shoulder, and see how regenerative cell treatment can do wonders.

According to the article published by Zuckerman JD and Rokito A in the journal J Shoulder Elbow Surg., dated 2011, frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis, is defined as "a condition of uncertain aetiology, characterized by significant restriction of both active and passive shoulder motion that occurs in the absence of a known intrinsic shoulder disorder."

Frozen shoulder is always associated with severe pain that worsens by night, stiffness, and loss or range of motion. Frozen shoulder may be primary or secondary type. Primary frozen shoulder is often associated with conditions like diabetes mellitus. A secondary type of frozen shoulder usually affects individuals with a recent history of shoulder injuries like subacromial impingement, rotator cuff tendon tear, biceps tenosynovitis and calcific tendonitis.

Stages of frozen shoulder

Frozen shoulder often reveals in three stages:

Freezing stage or the painful stage: This stage lasts for 2-9 months. It starts gradually with dispersing pain, followed by the thickening of the shoulder capsule. This condition leads to severe pain with restricted movement.

Frozen stage or the adhesive stage: This stage lasts for 4-6 months. Here, the pain usually begins to subside, and it restricts the joint movement. Stiffness persists in this stage.

Thawing stage or the last stage: This stage lasts for 6-24 months to heal completely. During this stage, the shoulder joint capsule begins to loosen up. The pain subsides gradually with gradual improvement in the range of shoulder movement.

Causes of frozen shoulder

The exact cause of frozen shoulder has remained unknown. However, patients having systemic ailments like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, Parkinson's disease, etc. have frozen shoulder. Similarly, those who immobilize their shoulder joint for a prolonged time, mostly after surgery or fracture, are more prone to have a frozen shoulder. Still, manual workers and women above the age of 40 are at higher risk of developing a frozen shoulder.

Diagnosis of frozen shoulder

Physical examination of the shoulder followed by tests such as an X-ray, ultrasound scan, or an MRI scan can detect the condition.

Treatment of frozen shoulder

The conventional treatment methods of frozen shoulder include R.I.C.E. (Rest, Ice therapy, Compression, and Elevation), physiotherapy, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug administration, and corticosteroid injections. But these treatment methods help to alleviate the symptoms only for a short duration. Hence, the physician may recommend frozen shoulder surgery as the only method to get permanent relief from pain.

Regenerative cell treatment

Recently an innovative treatment method named regenerative cell treatment has emerged as one of the most popular treatment methods for frozen shoulder pain treatment. This non-surgical Regenerative cell treatment is safe that naturally utilizes the intrinsic property of your regenerative cells to promote healing. This therapeutic approach not only alleviates the symptoms but also promotes self-healing of the damaged tissues. Unlike conventional treatment methods, regenerative cell treatment addresses the cause of the symptoms rather than merely masking the symptoms. Hence, this regenerative cell treatment has also reduced the need for medications, steroid injections, and surgery.

For more information on the regenerative treatment for the frozen shoulder condition, we use PRP therapy or Plasma Rich Therapy, along with other Regenerative therapies for frozen shoulder treatment. You can also contact Medica Stem Cells clinic in Ireland or in London, to learn more about the types of Medica stem cell therapy available to treat your frozen shoulder.
