“Frozen shoulder or Adhesive Capsulitis is a very common condition especially in diabetic people and women,” says Dr. Bijju Pankapally“What Frozen shoulders need is a well-directed physiotherapy, but people make the mistake of approaching ayurvedic doctors, massage experts or chiropractors. When physiotherapy doesn’t work, a minimally invasive keyhole surgery or an arthroscopic procedure will help you alleviate pain and sleep in peace.”Tendency of people to ignore shoulder pain, as it is not a weight bearing joint, also bothers Dr. Bijju Pankapally.“Shoulder pain undermines your quality of life because you can no longer lift your arm above a particular level or sleep well at night. There are minimally invasive keyhole techniques which can speedily repair the shoulder and help you resume a good quality life. Not correcting shoulder pain immediately means risking a muscle tear, which no medicine can heal.”So, the message is simple. If you experience pain in your joints, do not sit on it. Paying a visit to a specialist will only prevent further damage and improve your quality of life.
