In a previous thread I discussed my frozen shoulder aka "adhesive capsulitis" Painful it is. Suggested treatment was PT with home based stretches twice daily. I did this for about a month. PT twice a week, stretching twice a day. I plateaued in about a week. Frustrated with my lack of progress, I looked around and found out about "Active Release Technique" this is performed by specially trained Chiropractors. It is a patented process that breaks up adhesions and involves the patient making specific moves while the Dr pushes into the affected area. On a pain scale I'd give it a 5 on a scale of 10. On a success scale, I would rate it 10+ I walked out of the office with about 20% more mobility than when I went in. More treatments will be forthcoming. Now, if you are recovering from ANY TYPE of surgery in which the joint becomes stiff,or any type of injury resulting in stiffness and loss of motion, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you look into this. It cuts rehab time and restores full motion faster than anything I have seen.
