      I had torn my labrum because of which I was facing frequent shoulder dislocations and they were really painful. I decided to get it fixed because I am physically active and involved in sports. I visited Dr. Aditya, he explained me everything in great detail about the procedure. The surgery was a major one and went on for hours. He did the surgery brilliantly and after rehabilitation I started physical activities and there are no dislocations anymore. Thanks Dr. Aditya ????

      Dr. Aditya Sai is a brilliant doctor and gem of a person for sure. I underwent ACL reconstruction and meniscus repair for my right knee by him 3 months back. He explained the procedure in detail and very clearly before surgery although I had done fair amount of research myself but the best thing was he gave me confidence for it. His full team was supportive throughout the procedure and post surgery too. I have been in constant consultations with him for three months as he is monitoring my progress during physiotherapy. I am very happy to tell that my progress is very good. Hopefully I am expecting to join sports very soon. I highly recommend him to anyone and thanks his whole staff for taking a very good care of me. Aditya Anshu Suptdg. Geo scientist at ONGC Ltd.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      Frozen shoulder, also known as Adhesive Capsulitis, is a common disorder causing stiffness, pain, and loss of normal movement in the shoulder. The condition can result in a severe disability. Early recognition and treatment of this condition are vital as it can worsen with time. Frozen shoulder is generally prevalent among people of the age group 40 or older.

      Though the real cause of the disorder is still unknown, an inflammatory process is linked to it to some extent. The immobility of shoulders for a long time, either because of surgery, injury or illness, can also lead to frozen shoulders. You can unfreeze the shoulder through lots of self-help, but the complete recovery process takes time. To undergo frozen shoulder treatment in Mumbai, you may consider making an appointment with Dr Aditya Sai.

      Stiffness and pain come out to be the main symptoms of a frozen shoulder, restricting the shoulder's mobility. A dull or achy pain persists in the shoulder of individuals with frozen shoulders. You might also notice acute pain in the shoulder muscles that wrap around the top of your arm. The same sensation might also be observed in the upper arm. The pain generally worsens at night, making it difficult to sleep.

      The frozen shoulder consists of three phases. Each phase has its unique timeline and symptoms.

      Freezing Stage:

      • Severe pain might be noticed in the shoulders when you try to move them.
      • The pain worsens with time and tends to increase at night.
      • The pain can typically last for about 6 to 9 months.
      • It will limit your shoulder movement.

      Frozen Stage:

      • The stiffness in the shoulder increases with a reduction in the pain.
      • Your shoulder becomes immobile, even creating difficulties to carry out the daily activities.
      • The particular stage can last for about 4 to 12 months.

      Thawing Stage:

      • Your hand movement starts getting back to normal.
      • The stage lasts for about six months to 2 years.

      Determining the phase of your disorder is essential to get the right treatment. For more details or frozen shoulder treatment in Mumbai, you may visit Dr Aditya Sai.

      The primary causes of the frozen shoulder include:

      The tendons, ligaments, and bones forming your shoulder are clasped in the capsule of connective tissue. Frozen shoulder results from the thickening and tightening of this capsule, restricting the movements.

      The actual cause is still unknown. But it is commonly found in people with diabetes or if the shoulder had been immobilized for a longer duration due to illness, injury, or surgery.

      The significant risk factors of frozen shoulders include:

      • Age and Sex: It generally tends to affect people 40 years of age and older, and it is more common in women.
      • Immobility or reduced mobility: Individuals who had immobilized their shoulders for a longer duration are at much higher risk of developing this disorder. The stiffness may result from:
        • Broken arm
        • Rotator cuff injury
        • Recovery from surgery
        • Stroke

      People with specific disease mentioned below tend to be at higher risk of developing frozen shoulder:

      • Overactive Thyroid
      • Underactive Thyroid
      • Diabetes
      • Tuberculosis
      • Cardiovascular disease
      • Parkinson's disease

      If you have any of these diseases and notice any of the risk factors of frozen shoulder, consulting a doctor would help. You can consult with Dr Aditya Sai, one of the best doctors for frozen shoulders in Mumbai.

      The pain and stiffness of the shoulder can remain up to three years if the frozen shoulder is not treated. The following techniques can speed up the overall recovery:

      • Physical Therapy: It is the most common treatment procedure for a frozen shoulder. Physical therapy tends to stretch your shoulder joint, helps in regaining the immobility. Obtaining actual progress from physical therapy can take somewhere between a few weeks to 9 months. Exercise should be made a part of the daily routine, but make sure the activity is not rigorous.
      • Medications: Your doctor may prescribe inflammatory medicines to reduce joint inflammation and pain. Steroid injection might also help.
      • Home Care: An ice pack must be placed on your shoulder for 15 minutes, several times a day, to get relief from the pain. You can perform little exercises at home. You can follow your physical therapist's guidance on the type of exercise to be done and the duration of the exercise. Surgery also tends to improve the condition, so it can be kept as a second option.
      • Surgery: If your condition doesn't show any improvement with physical therapy, you might opt for surgery. Surgery generally manipulates the shoulder to break any adhesions and give a full range of motion. Arthroscopic surgery is another option that uses a camera called an arthroscope. A small cut is made in the shoulder area during this surgery, and the scar tissues are removed. The shoulder regains its lost motion after this surgery. If your frozen shoulder results from an injury, the surgery must be performed within a few weeks to obtain maximum benefit.

      The stitches of this surgery are generally removed after ten days and usually requires some postoperative physical therapy. It generally shows a high success rate, and the patients typically regain their full range of motion within three months. Some pain or stiffness might remain even after the surgery. Surgeries generally accompany risk, so you must consult your doctor before opting for it. If you are looking for the best doctor for frozen shoulders in Mumbai, you might consult Dr Aditya Sai.
