Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a painful and often debilitating condition that affects the shoulder joint.
It is characterised by the gradual development of stiffness, pain, and limited range of motion in the shoulder. Frozen shoulder can last for several months to a few years and typically progresses through stages, namely:
- Freezing Stage: In this stage, which can last several months, there is a gradual onset of pain and increasing stiffness in the shoulder. Range of motion becomes limited.
- Frozen Stage: During this stage, which can last several months to a year, the pain may decrease, but the stiffness remains. Activities that involve the shoulder become difficult.
- Thawing Stage: In this final stage, the range of motion in the shoulder gradually improves, and pain diminishes. This stage can take several months to years.
At Dr SW Clinics, we can treat a range of pain conditions using Regenerative Medicine and pain-relieving injections. If you are tired of living with pain and looking for a non-surgical intervention, then Dr SW Clinics could help you get back to your optimal quality of life.

The exact cause of frozen shoulder is not always clear, but it often develops in the following situations:
- Idiopathic: In many cases, frozen shoulder occurs for no apparent reason, and there may not be a specific underlying cause.
- Immobilization: Prolonged immobilization of the shoulder joint due to injury, surgery, or medical conditions can increase the risk of developing frozen shoulder.
- Diabetes: People with diabetes are at a higher risk of developing frozen shoulder, although the exact link is not fully understood.
- Other Medical Conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as thyroid disorders, heart disease, and Parkinson’s disease, may increase the risk of frozen shoulder.
Common symptoms of frozen shoulder include:
- Gradual onset of pain in the shoulder, often worsening at night.
- Stiffness and limited range of motion, making it difficult to perform daily activities.
- Pain that worsens with movement.
- Decreased strength in the affected shoulder.
Depending on the joint issue you present with, there may be a couple of ways to diagnose your pain and thereby find you a lasting solution.
Firstly, you will have a telephone consultation with one of our highly trained patient advisors. This patient advisor will ask you a series of pre-assessment questions to
better understand your personal needs.
You will then be invited for a consultation with one of our leading experts. To better gain an understanding of the problem, the Consultant may suggest you receive an x- ray or an MRI.
What is an x-ray?
A diagnostic test that can help identify what issues are causing the pain.
What is an MRI?
A diagnostic test using a magnetic field and radio waves for a detailed image of both joint and soft tissue.
What is an ultrasound?
Typically a handheld device that provides an on the spot image of the soft tissue.
Once we’ve received the results of your diagnostic tests, our team will be able to advise you on next best steps to get you pain free.
