Frozen Shoulder Syndrome is a complicated condition that can have an underlying metabolic cause such as diabetes or metabolic syndrome. It can be caused from a chronically pinched nerve in the neck and/or the shoulder. Regardless of the cause, our Monmouth County massage therapists are trained to treat Frozen Shoulder Syndrome. The best massage approach to the Frozen Shoulder Syndrome is through a technique called Myofascial Release. This technique uses manual sustained pressure at different key points on the muscle until the tight and taut muscle band releases and softens. Sustained pressure is used from 10 seconds to as long as 60 seconds per muscle point. This is based on the work of Dr. Janet Travell, M.D. Dr. Travell used this technique to treat President John F. Kennedy’s severe chronic low back condition.
