Frozen shoulder (Adhesive capsulitis), shoulder pain syndrome

Editor: | 29. November 2019

Do you feel intense pain in your shoulder while moving and while resting? Does pain prevent you from sleeping? If mobility is restricted in all ways, but especially rotating the arm above shoulder level, you may suffer from frozen shoulder syndrome.

Characteristics of Frozen Shoulder and its causes

Shoulder pain syndrome is a disorder of the shoulder joint. Tendons and their attachments get damaged by reoccurring microtraumas (hard to notice injuries). Calcium deposits start forming in the affected area. Calcification of tendons and bursas (small sacks found around joints) are visible in x-ray images.

Shoulder pain syndrome is accompanied by severe pain. It makes full mobility of the shoulder impossible.

The so-called frozen shoulder is a form of shoulder pain syndrome. In cases of frozen shoulder syndrome, after the painful acute phase, the shoulder gradually stiffens or freezes.  This is a reaction of the fibrous capsule to the damage.

There is a wide range of causes of the frozen shoulder:

  • Injury to the shoulder, excess strain or chilling of the shoulder,
  • degenerative or inflammatory causes,
  • infectious and neurological causes.

There can be secondary metastases in the bone during lung, breast, thyroid, kidney or prostate cancer that lead to pain manifesting in the shoulder area.

Pain in the shoulder as a result of spondylosis in the cervical spine area is another common occurrence.

Frozen shoulder syndrome treatment – rid yourself of the pain

Frozen shoulder treatment is based on  solving the cause.

The main aim of the treatment is to prevent pain occurring during shoulder pain syndrome. Pharmacological tools are used in the form of analgesics, non-steroid anti-rheumatics and local corticoids.

Physiotherapy and exercise is an integral part of the treatment. We recommend some exercises from your physiotherapist. These will help you maintain or increase mobility in the shoulder. 3D pulse therapy and ultrasound therapy are used as a part of physical therapy. In serious cases, surgical intervention is required.

3D Biomag pulse therapy helps treating Frozen shoulder syndrome.

Explanation of chosen terms:

  • Analgesics – pain supressing drugs.
  • Local corticoids – corticoids (steroid hormones used for its anti-inflammatory effect) administered locally.
  • Microtrauma – small and most often unnoticed injury.
  • Non-steroid anti-rheumatics – non-steroid drug having analgesic, anti- inflammatory and antipyretic effects.
  • Spondylosis – degenerative disease of vertebrae.
  • Bursa – a small sack found near joints and tendons that decreases friction in places of great pressure and movement.

Patented 3D Biomag pulsed therapy. How does it work?

The basic principle of 3D Biomag magnetotherapy is generating electromagnetic pulses. The generated pulses penetrate through layers of clothing and even body tissues to the place of application. These pulses have specially developed biotropic parameters (e.g. frequency, profile, intensity), thanks to which the pulsed magnetotherapy affects various health conditions.

The term pulse magnetotherapy is most commonly used for physiotherapy using the principle of electromagnetic pulses. The abbreviation PEMF is used in order to be concise.

Patented 3D Biomag technology ensures more precise and uninterrupted pulse profiles, enhances output, and allows pulses to come from various angles. This makes it a completely new and unique medical technology on the market.

What are the benefits of therapy for frozen shoulder and shoulder pain syndrome? 

  • Helps soothe pain and improves mobility.
  • Has an anti-inflammatory effect and can bring general relief.
  • Thanks to being easy to use, it can be applied at home.
  • It’s a solution with no additional medicaments.
  • It’s a non-invasive treatment.

The effects of pulsed therapy - clinical studies

The effects of pulse therapy (PEMF) on frozen shoulder are supported by many studies. For example,. by a clinical study by doctors in England and Italy conducted in 2015 on 66 patients who underwent surgical operations on ruptured rotator cuffs. The study confirms that pulse therapy (PEMF) is an appropriate supporting treatment of the frozen shoulder . It follows from the abovementioned that 3D Biomag therapy can help mitigate post operation pain and stiffness of the shoulder due to its analgesic effect. More about this scientific study.

Positive effects of pulse magnetic field (PEMF) are evidenced by clinical studies by authorities on the subject and renowned institutions. The newest list of these clinical studies can be found on this page. Contact us and we will gladly help to familiarize yourself with this expert data.

Our department uses pulse magnetic field application very well. We appreciate that not only is there an option to used numbered programmes, but also to set up our own programmes. The device is small and easy to operate with good output.

University hospital Na Bulovce, Prague – Physiotherapy department

We have been utilising pulse magnetic field treatment in our spa for more than 10 years. We use Biomag devices for both physiotherapy and spa treatment. It is very advantageous to combine magnetotherapy with other physiotherapy methods because the effect of magnetotherapy potentiates with other methods (analgesic, anti-oedematous, recovery and myorelaxing).

We are happy with the device. The applicators are also easy to operate, and treatment results are satisfying. Feedback from patients is positive. Average number of applications is 50 per week.

In winter 2002, I suffered from shoulder joint inflammation, I could not move my hand. I borrowed the Biomag device from my sister and used it twice a day in a basic application. I was totally fine within 3 weeks.

Broňa Poláková, Nemyčeves

As a masseur, I highly recommended magnetotherapy to all my clients. Outstanding results are at the back muscles that are stiff cold, blowing. Further, in infants with cerebral palsy in conditions after cerebrovascular events, and stiff shoulders ...

Lenka Vidurková, Vracov

I use the Biomag magnetotherapy device in case of difficulties with the spine, knee and shoulder joints. I am 63 years old and since I've used Biomag device my difficulties are only minimal.
