A Novel Mobilization for Frozen Shoulder

Frozen shoulders are Slow Responders. You don’t expect in most cases to get rapid improvement in mobility. True issues in the tissues take time with repeated low loads to have adaptation occur. You can however, get rapid response in pain modulation along with a little extra threat free movement in every plane with this simple technique.

Many frozen shoulders can be extra sensitized to movement in most directions. This is compounded by the often strong perception of stretch in every plane of movement. You can rapidly decrease sensitivity and gain a little mobility in every plane by giving the capsule, ligaments, and muscles a break by slacking them. This is novel in itself because most want to stretch already sensitized tissues. After holding for 30-90 seconds, lightly release and recheck the active and passive movement. Mobility usually improves a bit, but sensitivity often improves significantly. Frozen shoulders are slow responders in mobility, but you can still modulate pain rapidly.

My interest in health and fitness started at a young age. Even though I had been educated and trained as an engineer in Europe I always want to follow my passion. I have made some guest appearances on a health educational program TV in Europe and, this experience, has made me follow my passion of sharing wellness information with others.
