West Valley Pain Solutions offers a very specific type of sedative physical medicine treatment for frozen shoulder called manipulation under anesthesia. Typically when you have a true frozen shoulder you will still be able to work with your affects arm/shoulder in the area directly in front of your chest and abdomen. However the true frozen shoulder patient has trouble with tasks of daily living above the shoulder level and especially behind the back like when trying to put on a shirt or under garments such as a Tee shirt or bra. Most people who have frozen shoulder don’t even know it because they just change their daily activities and can be fooled by the fact that they can have full range of motion while working with their arms in front of their body. Typically frozen shoulder will be present for a few days to a few months and can be very temperamental and even go away for a few days and then show up with a vengeance. Treatment of frozen shoulder is typically steroid injections but the injections really only help with the inflammation and does not attend to the real cause of the problem which is an excessive buildup of scar tissue which restricts the joints and adheres to the nerves supplying the surrounding tissues of the joint rendering movement in certain positions nearly impossible as well as painful.

The physicians at West Valley Pain Solutions offer frozen shoulder treatment or sedative physical medicine known as manipulation under anesthesia.
