Frozen shoulder, a condition also called adhesive capsulitis, causes pain and stiffness in the shoulder area. Over time, the shoulder becomes sore then very difficult to move, with a limited range of motion. Frozen shoulder tends to get worse before getting better, with a full recovery possibly taking up to three years. Massage therapy in Pompano Beach done regularly can help in alleviating the shoulder pain and loosening or relaxing the stiff shoulder muscles.

Frozen shoulder typically occurs in women more often than men and commonly affects people between the ages of 40 and 60. While many seek massage therapy for relief, other treatments for frozen shoulder include physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs), steroid injections, heat therapy, and home exercises.
A massage therapist can use a variety of techniques to treat frozen shoulder. Massage will help the affected muscles by increasing the blood circulation in the area. It is also useful in breaking down scar tissue.
Shiatsu is a helpful type of massage for this condition, as it requires a lot of pressure on the ‘acupressure points’ and positively affecting the energy flow throughout the body. If there is a lot of inflammation and acute pain, it may be better to avoid deep tissue massage because it can be quite intense and result in even more pain for the client.
Deep tissue massage techniques also work because the consistent pressure on the muscles can release the scar tissue and adhesions that are causing the painful condition. With any type of message, regular treatments are necessary to yield results.
