Frozen shoulder, also called adhesive capsulitis, is a condition that causes stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint. Over time, it may become difficult to move the shoulder. The Natural history of this condition is that it usually resolves within 2 year. Shockwave Therapy significantly shortens the healing time.
Most of the patients who are diagnosed with frozen shoulder are usually between the ages of 40 and 60 and mostly affects women.
Research has shown that extracorporeal shock wave therapy significantly reduces pain in people with diabetic frozen shoulder and also reduces treatment cost. The MASTERPULS® Ultra series, from Storz Medical, available at Shockwave Canada, helps in pain management and treatment of frozen shoulder.
