Frozen shoulder—capsulitis, adhesive capsulitis, and primary frozen shoulder—is an agonizing and debilitating condition that causes excruciating pain, increasing stiffness and movement loss in one or both shoulders. Typically, the condition takes two to three years to resolve, even with costly interventions. The exact causes of frozen shoulder are medically unknown, and most sufferers find recovery to be a long, drawn-out painful process.
In Unlocking Frozen Shoulder, physiotherapist and healer Lynn Varcin considers a new paradigm of treatment, including self-healing the emotional links to minimize certain hormone levels. Lynn takes on the science, and challenges current practice with a simple system that shows us how best to assist ourselves from within. Lynn proposes that being rejected or hiding a severe emotional situation will contribute to the altered hormonal states underlying primary frozen shoulder. New exercises and self-healing strategies based on stabilizing hormonal balances are explained.
