What is Frozen Shoulder?


Frozen Shoulder is a painful and debilitating condition affecting as many as 2-5% of the population. Frozen shoulder is somewhat of a medical enigma, for example, once it is cured it (almost) never comes back again on the same side. 

Frozen Shoulder often appears for no apparent reason but can stem from an injury to the shoulder. Frozen shoulder goes through 3 phases. In the first phase the shoulder freezes, in the second it becomes frozen and movement is painful and limited. In the third phase the shoulder thaws and movement returns. This can take on average 30 months.


The Niel Asher Technique involves soft tissue therapy that follows a prescribed pattern to release the frozen shoulder and restore movement.

If you are suffering with a frozen or stiff shoulder why not book an appointment for an assessment and to discuss treatment options.
