Medica Stem Cells offer minimally invasive, non-surgical, safe alternatives for Frozen Shoulder treatment to get your life back on track without steroid injections!
Frozen Shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is simply an inflamed shoulder capsule characterised by stiffness and pain in your shoulder joint. The bones, ligaments and tendons that make up your shoulder joint are all encased in a capsule of connective tissue which can be inflamed resulting in adhesion restricting the movement and resulting in a lot of pain.
Mostly frozen shoulder affects people between the ages of 40 and 60. The condition is more common in women than men.

It’s not clear why some people develop it, but some groups are more at risk. Limited mobility of the shoulder for any reason can in time result in a frozen shoulder. Your risk might also go up if you are in the process of recovering from a medical conditions like
