Frozen Shoulder

A common disorder, also called adhesive capsulitis, in which shoulder pain is followed by stiffness and restricted movement of the shoulder joint. Normally the anatomy of the shoulder joint allows a wide range of movements. When a frozen shoulder develops, the lining of the fibrous capsule that surrounds the joint becomes inflamed and thickened, scar like tissue forms, limiting shoulder movements. The condition affects more women than men and is common in people over 40. MFIT can reveal that the main cause of this ailment comes when the fascia under the armpit by the scapula thickens. This can cause the internal and external rotators of the shoulder to engage at the same time causing the appearance of a lock!. Over a prolonged period this can cause adhesive capsulitis to develop in the shoulder. Using MFIT methods instead of traditional methods (which can take any time up to a year to treat) will normally require 1-3 treatments for a succesful outcome.

  1. WOW, I have had a Frozen Shoulder for a year, wish I had known about Michael a long time ago. I can see an end to all my aches and pains. Thank You

  2. My son, Laurence, is provided with massage treatment for his back. He finds this very remedial and has encouraged me to read your blog. Although I am not fully conversant with the terminology, I found it very informative.
    (You may like to amend a word on fifth line down under Frozen Shoulder. I am sure the joint would become ‘scarred’ rather than frightened (‘scared’)!
