A frozen shoulder affects sufferers for varying lengths of time. Some sufferers may experience frequent but mild pain and stiffness, whereas others may experience long periods of suffering with little respite. In fact, in worst-case scenarios, you may end up suffering from a frozen shoulder for years. Physical therapy can help relieve the swelling and reduce pain, providing the sufferer with improved mobility and a better quality of life.
The difficulty in effectively treating a frozen shoulder stems from the swelling. In more severe cases the swelling is so bad the sufferer is unable to move his or her arm. Reducing the swelling through physiotherapy is one of the most common ways of treating a swollen shoulder, as doing so allows a greater range of movement and makes increased exercise possible.
