Ayurvedic treatment for frozen shoulder

In Frozen Shoulder, a person may experience pain & restricted motions of shoulder joint. Few may also experience pain from neck to shoulder, painful neck movements, stiffness of neck and shoulder joint.

You’re more likely to have the condition if you’re between the ages of 40 and 60. In Ayurveda it is considered due to Vata dosha. In preliminary stage of the disease where loss or dryness of the Shleshaka Kapha from the shoulder joint occurs. The next stage, that is, Apabahuka, occurs due reduced Shleshaka Kapha and symptoms like shoola (Pain) during movement, restricted movement occurs.

Pain due to frozen shoulder is dull or aching. It can be worsened with attempted motion. The pain is usually located over the outer shoulder area and sometimes the upper arm.

Stages of Frozen shoulder:

  1. Freezing stage – Shoulder movements cause pain. The ability to move shoulder reduces.
