What is a Frozen Shoulder?

Frozen shoulder is a condition characterized by the gradual onset of stiffness and pain in the shoulder joints. It typically lasts from one to three years and progresses through three stages: freezing, frozen, and thawing. During the freezing stage, even the slightest shoulder movement can cause pain, leading to a limited range of motion. In the frozen stage, pain may decrease, but the shoulder becomes increasingly stiff and difficult to use. Finally, in the thawing stage, the range of motion gradually improves.

Our experienced therapists employ a range of Ayurvedic therapies, including shoulder exercises, physiotherapy techniques, and targeted massages. By addressing the underlying causes and promoting overall well-being, our approach aims to alleviate discomfort and enhance your shoulder’s mobility.

Ayurvedic Perspective on Frozen Shoulder

In Ayurveda, the frozen shoulder is referred to as Aphabuka, which is classified into two types. The first type is associated with dry swelling, characterized by a sensation of air racing or moving. The second type is associated with moist inflammation caused by Kapha, which can restrict the movement of vata, leading to localized pain.

Factors Contributing to Frozen Shoulder

While the exact causes of frozen shoulder remain unknown, certain factors may increase the risk of developing this condition. These include:

1. Injury
2. Overuse or repetitive movements, such as those involved in office jobs or physical labor
3. Diabetes or stroke history
4. Consumption of excess bitter and astringent foods
5. Prolonged exposure to wind and cold
6. Poor posture
