Physiotherapy & Yoga Treatments for Frozen Shoulder


  • Shoulder Mobilization - Joint mobilization, including Maitland's oscillatory techniques and Kaltenborn's sustained stretch technique, is used clinically to treat adhesive capsulitis. The purpose of the mobilizing exercise therapy for a frozen shoulder is primarily to increase shoulder movement by stretching the glenohumeral joint capsule.

  • Shoulder ROM Exercises - This refers to the range of motion exercises which helps in stretching and strengthening of the shoulder muscles. You can follow these steps to know more about these exercises - 7 Stretching & Strengthening exercises for a frozen shoulder.

  • TENS - One of the most common forms of electrical stimulation used for pain management is transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy, which provides short-term pain relief. Electrical nerve stimulation and electrothermal therapy are used to relieve pain associated with various conditions, including back pain & frozen shoulder.

  • UST - Ultrasound therapy (UST), one of the modalities used to treat frozen shoulder elevates tissue temperature to depths of more than 5 cm causing increased collagen tissue extensibility, pain threshold, and enzymatic activity. It also changes nerve conduction velocity, contractile activity of the skeletal muscle.

  • HP (Hot Pad) - Hot Pad is extremely necessary prior to any frozen shoulder exercise. Always warm up your shoulder before performing your exercises. The best way to do that is to take a warm shower or bath for 10 to 15 minutes. You can also use a moist heating pad or a damp towel heated.

  • IFT - Interferential Therapy machines deliver continuous stimulation deep into the affected tissue. The stimulation both blocks pain and reduces swelling and inflammation which can cause pain.
