The rotator cuff is a group of muscles that strengthen and stabilise the shoulder joint as well as provide movement. Due to its role in protecting the shoulder it is the location of the majority of shoulder injuries.
Frozen shoulder, correctly termed Adhesive Capsulitis, is an injury of the joint capsule/lining directly and muscles indirectly, resulting in limited and painful movement of the shoulder.
Correct orthopaedic testing can determine the true location and extent of the injury as well as suggest the mechanism of injury.

The number of treatments varies depending on the indication and tissue response. The effect of the treatment is cumulative, so you will typically need more than one treatment. Very often though, you will experience relief right after the first treatment.
Most indications require at least 3–5 treatments which are done 3–10 days apart, depending on the patient’s tolerance and their tissue response.
