Frozen Shoulder Syndrome

What Is Frozen Shoulder Syndrome?

Frozen Shoulder Syndrome (FSS) is the restriction of movement from injury, lack of use and pain. Rheumatic disease progression and recent shoulder surgery is a cause of FFS and rarely appears in people under the age of 40. While the shoulder is the most movable joint in the body, it is an unstable joint due to its great range of motion allowed. Instability can increase the likelihood of joint injury.

Those most at risk for FSS are people with:

  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Lung disease
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Heart disease
  • Those involved in an accident

Frequently Asked Questions

One-To-Zero (OTZ) is a proven, non-surgical method of diagnosing and successfully treating frozen shoulder syndrome. OTZ Tension Adjustment™ and OTZ Muscle Tension Technique™ successfully treat sufferers and train and certify doctors on how to use the OTZ method to relieve their patients.

Without OTZ, treatment involves stretching exercises and sometimes an injection of corticosteroids and numbing drugs into the joint capsule. Surgery may be required to loosen the joint capsule so that it can move more freely.

With OTZ, effects are instantaneous, improvements can be dramatic and surgery may be unnecessary. The One to Zero Tension Adjustment is a complex series of chiropractic adjustments performed in a specific order. The procedure will differ for every frozen shoulder syndrome patient, depending on the needs assessment during the exam.

Few chiropractors are able to offer OTZ. Dr. Jay Shephard has been trained and certified for OTZ. With years of training, clinical experience and certified for OTZ, Dr. Shephard will determine the ideal method for you as consultation suggests.
