Frozen Shoulder In-Clinic Therapy

For frozen shoulder, at your first visit to physical therapy, you will undergo a full evaluation to assess your shoulder range of motion and strength. Your therapist will create a program of therapeutic exercises and stretching to address any areas of deficit.

A normal physical therapy session for frozen shoulder may look like the following:

    • 10’ moist heat pack application for shoulder joint and musculature warm up
    • Shoulder, elbow, and wrist sustained stretching for mobility.
    • Therapeutic exercises designed to strengthen postural muscles and muscles of the shoulder, arm, wrist, and hand.
    • Soft tissue mobilization to shoulder, as well as any other upper extremity musculature that has become tight and overactive.
    • Passive range of motion performed by therapist to increase and maintain mobility.
    • Electrical stimulation (similar to TENS) with an ice pack to help with pain relief and manage inflammation.
