Frozen shoulder commonly affects people between 40 to 60 years old. However, there are many causes of shoulder pain; here are some common causes:
Shoulder pain is any discomfort or soreness that occurs in or around the shoulder joint. It can range from mild to severe and is often caused by an injury, medical condition, or repetitive motion. Common symptoms of shoulder pain include stiffness, swelling, tenderness, weakness, and limited mobility. Treatment depends on the cause of the pain and can include rest, physical therapy, medications, or surgery.
Osteopathic treatment of shoulder pain involves manual stretching, manipulation, and mobilisation techniques to improve mobility in the joint and reduce stiffness. Osteopaths may also use massage, exercise therapy, taping or bracing, hydrotherapy, and lifestyle advice to help relieve pain and promote healing. Osteopathy can help treat a wide range of shoulder injuries, including rotator cuff tears, labral tears, frozen shoulder, bursitis, and tendinitis.
Recovery time from shoulder pain and injury varies depending on the cause, severity of symptoms, and treatment plan. Generally speaking, mild to moderate injuries that are adequately treated should take several weeks to heal. Severe injuries may take longer to recover from.

Osteopathy is often covered by private health insurance, but in some cases it is an additional element of the policy or you may need to get a referral from your GP or approval in advance. It is best to contact your insurer and ask about the details and process for your particular policy. We can invoice direct to the insurer if appropriate.
