Frequently Asked Questions

What is frozen shoulder?

Frozen shoulder (also referred to as adhesive capsulitis) is a musculoskeletal condition that is marked by painful stiffening of the shoulder joint. Frozen shoulder is caused by constriction or thickening of connective tissue capsule that surrounds the shoulder joint due to ongoing inflammation.

Despite extensive research and clinical investigations, the exact cause of frozen shoulder is not known. Investigators have agreed that the condition is mainly multi-factorial in origin (i.e. more than one causative agent is responsible for the pathogenesis of adhesive capsulitis).

What are frozen shoulder symptoms?

Frozen shoulder (also known as adhesive capsulitis in sophisticated terms) is a painful musculoskeletal condition that primarily restricts the activity of shoulder joint and usually runs a chronic course. In untreated cases, symptoms may resolve spontaneously over a period of 1-3 years.

A Highly Sought After Therapy

People fly in from all over the world to receive Trigenics Frozen Shoulder treatment. The therapy utilises a combination of specific Trigenics treatment protocols simultaneously combined with specific shoulder joint mobilisations that help to separate the frozen shoulder adhesions allowing the restoration of normal movement.

The non-surgical procedure can provide near full range of movement after just one treatment and significant reduction of pain for most people. The whole protocol entails 3 to 5 days at the clinic with Dr Egan where you will undergo a full assessment, pre-care treatment visit, the frozen shoulder procedure, follow-up soft tissue and rehabilitation visits and home care instructions post procedure.

Dr Egan aims to not only help restore active range of motion to your shoulder and significantly decrease pain and accelerate your healing, but also to ensure you get a good understanding as to what may have led you to your current state. He will provide direction on where to continue to improve in the future.

Frozen Shoulder Anatomy

The shoulder joint is a ball and socket joint made up of three primary bones that articulate at multiple places to form four joints. The  shoulder joint is formed by the following:

  • Clavicle (the only horizontal S-shaped bone of the body, also known as the collarbone)
  • Scapula (that forms the prominence of your shoulder blade)
  • Humerus (the funny bone of the arm)

In simple words, the shoulder joint is formed by the bones that connect the upper limb.
