      Frequently Asked Questions

      If we compare it to other body parts, the shoulder is a part that has a more varied and wider range of motion. Adhesive capsulitis, more commonly known as the frozen shoulder, is a condition wherein the normal range of shoulder movements is lost and is accompanied by pain and stiffness of the shoulders. The disability can be severe, and if the situation is not treated in time, it can worsen quickly. The frozen shoulder is likely to be experienced by people in the age group of 40-60 years, and women are more prone to it than men.

      Immobilized shoulders caused by an injury, surgery or illness or an inflammatory process can lead to frozen shoulders, but the exact reason is not apparent. But due to the advancements, it is possible to unfreeze the shoulder. The recovery time is very long and requires self-help and motivation.

      From around the world, you can get one of the best treatments for frozen shoulders in India under the guidance of Dr Aditya Sai at Shoulder and Knee Clinic.

      One of the main symptoms of a frozen shoulder is the pain and stiffness that makes the movement of the shoulder almost impossible. The other symptoms include- dull or achy pain in one shoulder, pain in the muscles that wrap around the top of your arm, similar sensation in your upper arm and worsening of pain at night, making it hard to sleep. There are generally three stages of frozen shoulders varying in symptoms and timeline as follows-

      FREEZING STAGE-

      • It worsens with time and hurts more, especially at night.
      • Any movement can cause pain in your shoulder.
      • The condition can last from 6-9 months.
      • The range of motion of your shoulder is limited.

      FROZEN STAGE-

      • The movement of the shoulder becomes more complex, and it also interferes with your daily activities.
      • The stage can last from 4-12 months.
      • The pain can become better, but stiffness can worsen.

      THAWING STAGE-

      • The stage can take from 6 months to 2 years.
      • The range of motion of the shoulder starts to retain.

      Your doctor providing the treatment of frozen shoulder in India can tell you what stage of the frozen shoulder you are in and treat it based on the stage.

      CAUSES-

      Your shoulder joint is encased in a capsule of connective tissue. The shoulder is made up of bones, ligaments and tendons. When you get a frozen shoulder, the capsule thickens and tightens around the joint, causing the movement restriction. People who have diabetes are more vulnerable. Also, people who have their shoulder immobilized for a long time due to surgery or fracture can get this condition.

      RISK FACTORS

      The factors that can increase the risk of frozen shoulder are as follows-

      • Immobility or reduced mobility: People who have reduced movement or complete immobility are easily prone to frozen shoulders. It can be a result of-
      • Broken arm
      • Stroke
      • Recovery after a surgery
      • Rotator cuff injury
      • Age and Sex: Frozen shoulder is seen in people above 40, especially in women.
      • Systemic Diseases: Certain diseases can increase the chances of getting a frozen shoulder, including-
      • Cardiovascular diseases
      • Diabetes
      • Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid)
      • Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid)
      • Tuberculosis
      • Parkinson’s disease

      If you are starting anew and looking for a doctor, you can consider visiting Dr Aditya Sai’s Knee and Shoulder Clinic. He is amongst the best doctors for frozen shoulders in India.

      It is up to you whether you want to undergo treatment for frozen shoulders, but the pain and stiffness can last up to three years. There are various options available are:

      MEDICATION
      A pain and anti-inflammatory medication might be prescribed to you by your doctor to reduce the pain and joint inflammation. Asteroid injection on the shoulder might be helpful as well.

      PHYSICAL THERAPY
      The most commonly employed treatment for a frozen shoulder is physical therapy. It aims at stretching your shoulder and regaining the movement. It takes from several weeks to nine months. You’ll need to do some exercises at home as well. If you cannot see any change after six months of intense daily exercising, speak to your doctor regarding other options.

      SURGERY
      If physical therapy fails, surgery can be considered. From a surgical view, you can either manipulate the shoulder and make it undergo a full range of motion and break any adhesions if there while you are under a general anaesthetic. The other option is arthroscopic surgery. Arthroscopy will involve making a small incision on your shoulder and then using a camera (arthroscope) to view, remove or release the scar tissue. It will help regain the motion.

      Surgery is mainly used and is effective if a frozen shoulder is a result of an injury and performed within a few weeks of the injury. Surgery is an outpatient process, and stitches will be removed in 10 days after the surgery. Physical therapy is needed after the surgery, and full range motion is retained within three months. Surgery might have some risks, so make the decision carefully. Some people experience pain and stiffness after it or are unable to sustain the physical therapy.

      HOME CARE
      The pain can decrease if you place an ice pack for 15 minutes several times a day. You can ask your doctor to suggest some exercises that you can do at home. If you have a physical therapist, they will instruct you on what exercises are needed, how long and when to push yourself harder. You can improve the condition without the surgery as well.

      If you decide on surgery, the method you choose will impact the final frozen shoulder surgery cost in India. To undergo treatment, you may consult Dr Aditya Sai, who can provide you with the best quality treatment at an affordable price.
