Professional Treatment for Frozen Shoulder
If you’re feeling pain and stiffness in your shoulder, then you’re likely suffering from a frozen shoulder. This affects the joint directly and its symptoms gradually get worse over time. Some cases of this condition may even result in disability, limiting how far you can move your arm.
There’s no concrete reason behind the development of frozen shoulder. It’s likely caused by inflammation when the shoulder hasn’t been used for a long time. When this part of the body doesn’t move for a while, the capsule surrounding it becomes damaged and loses its natural ability to stretch. This makes it difficult for the bone in your upper arm to move around.
Frozen shoulder is a debilitating condition that can significantly diminish your quality of life. Bring it to a professional as soon as possible. If you’re looking for expert frozen shoulder treatment in Long Beach, Joint Pain Clinic got you covered. Our hassle-free process only has two major steps that don’t involve painkillers or major surgery.
How We Treat Pain
Our treatment process for frozen shoulder and other conditions consists of two major steps.
After we’ve pinpointed the area of your pain, we’ll inject it with a chemical that encourages blood circulation. This increased flow helps the body flush out inflammation
To supplement the first step, we’ll also use updated cryotherapy equipment to spray a cold stream of carbon dioxide (CO2) to the affected area. This also heightens blood flow.
