Frozen Shoulder - Should you opt for surgery?
Published at : 03 Jan 2021
Do you have faith in manual therapy?
We believe strongly that too many frozen shoulder patients opt for surgery. Surgery is traumatic; the outcome is uncertain, and is often dependent upon the level of manual therapy care applied during the post-surgical rehab period. Our advice: never opt for surgery until you have explored manual therapy options properly. Manual therapy works, and a well trained and knowledgable therapist should be able to treat all but the most severe cases of frozen shoulder.
