Adhesive capsulitis (AC) results in significant financial burden, pain and loss of quality of life. With a lack of understanding, clinicians may painfully and forcibly mobilize with disregard for the myofascial component of AC. This often negatively impacts future functional activity. This session will teach you proven manual therapy techniques that significantly improve outcomes for frozen shoulder. You’ll be better equipped to help your patient with mobility, circulation and pain management for peak functional performance.
