오십견

오십견은 주로 40~50대 이상에게 일어나며 만성적인 어깨 관절의 통증과 특히 능등적 및 수동적 운동 범위가 모두 감소하는 질환을 말합니다. 오십견은 특별한 원인 없이 발생하는 특발성 오십견과 다른 질환에 병발되어 발생하는 이차성 오십견으로 구분되며 동결견, 유착성견관절염, 견관절주위염, 유착성점액낭염 등으로도 불립니다.

대부분 원인을 알수 없으나 일부에서는 경미한 관절의 염좌(삠)를 호소하기는 하지만, 그것이 원인인지 아니면 오십견의 초기 증상인지는 명확하지 않습니다.

증상

초기에 약간의 뻐근함이나 어깨 운동시 통증이 있으나 환자는 삐었거나 잠을 잘못 잤다고 생각하고 방치하다가 점차 통증이 증가하여, 밤에 쑤시어 잠을 자기가 어렵고, 머리를 감거나 등을 긁는데 또는 옷을 입을 때 팔을 넣기가 힘이 들게 됩니다.

What is Frozen Shoulder?

Frozen shoulder, medically referred to as adhesive capsulitis, is a disorder in which the shoulder capsule, the connective tissue surrounding the glenohumeral joint of the shoulder, becomes inflamed and stiff, greatly restricting motion and causing chronic pain.

Adhesive capsulitis is a painful and disabling condition that often causes great frustration for patients and caregivers due to slow recovery. Movement of the shoulder is severely restricted. Pain is usually constant, worse at night, and when the weather is colder; and along with the restricted movement can make even small tasks impossible. Certain movements or bumps can cause sudden onset of tremendous pain and cramping that can last several minutes.

This condition, for which an exact cause is unknown, can last from five months to three years or more and is thought in some cases to be caused by injury or trauma to the area. It is believed that it may have an autoimmune component, with the body attacking healthy tissue in the capsule. There is also a lack of fluid in the joint, further restricting movement.

In addition to difficulty with everyday tasks, people who suffer from adhesive capsulitis usually experience problems sleeping for extended periods due to pain that is worse at night and restricted movement/positions. The condition also can lead to depression, pain, and problems in the neck and back.

Risk factors for frozen shoulder include diabetes, stroke, accidents, lung disease, connective tissue disorders, and heart disease. The condition very rarely appears in people under 40.

Treatment may be painful and taxing and consists of chiropractic adjustment, physical therapy, medication, massage therapy, hydrodilation or surgery. A Chiropractor help by performing manipulation, which breaks up the adhesions and scar tissue in the joint to help restore some range of motion. Frozen shoulder usually resolves over time without surgery, but this may take up to two years. Most people regain about 90% of shoulder motion over time. People who suffer from adhesive capsulitis may have extreme difficulty working and going about normal life activities for several months or longer.
