Being diagnosed with frozen shoulder can have a devastating effect on one’s life. Frozen Shoulder Syndrome or Adhesive Capsulitis, is still a mysterious orthopedic condition in as far as causative factors and prognosis. This condition is painful and difficult to heal, however, massage can be a major part of the solution. This video seminar gives you the tools to assess and treat this condition.
This Frozen Shoulder Syndrome seminar was written, instructed and directed by Elaine Calenda, AOS, NCTMB, a massage therapy educator for over 28 years. She has successfully applied the techniques demonstrated on this Frozen Shoulder Syndrome DVD seminar on real clients experiencing real shoulder issues. She also filmed this video program with one of her own clients in Boulder, Colorado who suffered from Frozen Shoulder Syndrome.
During her 25+ year career as a massage therapist and instructor, Elaine has learned firsthand that people who receive regular therapeutic massage for Frozen Shoulder Syndrome recover a lot faster, develop far fewer adhesive formations and scar tissue and are much less predisposed to strong holding patterns that can develop as a result.
This video seminar will also be helpful to you if you treat clients with active lifestyles who suffer shoulder problems, stiffness and restricted range of motion related to everyday repetitive motions. This DVD is recommended for practicing massage professionals, chiropractors and physical therapists who have completed at least 500 hours of accredited education that includes massage, physiology, pathology and anatomy.

- Interviewing your client for the facts about the condition.
