Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a condition characterized by stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint. At MOOV Physiotherapy in Ottawa, we understand the physical and emotional toll this condition can take. Our dedicated approach to treatment is designed to not only alleviate pain but also restore mobility and improve the quality of life.
Understanding Frozen Shoulder
Frozen shoulder typically develops slowly, and can last for months or even years. It's often divided into three stages: the freezing stage, where the shoulder becomes painful and stiff; the frozen stage, where pain may decrease but stiffness increases; and the thawing stage, where mobility begins to improve.
This condition can significantly impact daily activities, making simple tasks like dressing or reaching overhead challenging. It's more common in people over the age of 40 and can be particularly debilitating for those who rely on shoulder mobility for work or sports.
Diagnosing Frozen Shoulder
Frozen shoulders can manifest in various forms, from mild stiffness to severe pain and immobility. Understanding the different stages and causes of frozen shoulder is crucial in determining the most effective treatment approach.
Your Journey Towards Frozen Shoulder Relief
At MOOV Physiotherapy, we are committed to guiding you through a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and the stage of your frozen shoulder.
Your treatment begins with a thorough assessment to understand the severity of your condition. Our team will evaluate your shoulder's range of motion, pain level, and overall impact on your daily life.
Developing a Personalized Treatment Plan
Based on our assessment, we create a customized treatment plan. This plan may include a combination of physiotherapy techniques, IMS therapy, and, if necessary, telerehab options.
Physiotherapy is crucial in treating frozen shoulders. Our therapists use various techniques to reduce pain, increase range of motion, and prevent recurrence.
Regaining Mobility and Strength
Our focus is not only on relieving pain but also on restoring mobility and strength to the shoulder. This holistic approach ensures a more sustainable recovery and reduces the risk of recurrence.
Dry needling, or Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS), can be particularly effective in treating frozen shoulders, especially in cases where muscle tightness and trigger points contribute to pain and stiffness.
How Dry Needling Helps
By targeting specific trigger points, dry needling can help release muscle tension, reduce pain, and improve range of motion in the shoulder.
Benefits of Dry Needling:
Understanding the need for flexible treatment options, MOOV Physiotherapy offers Telerehab services, providing expert care remotely.

A Physical Therapist and a Physiotherapist are both health care professionals who specialize in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal conditions. The main difference between the two is that a Physical Therapist is trained in the United States while a Physiotherapist is trained in Canada.
