This is a story of a patient with shoulder pain and stiffness.
A 55 year old male presented to us with inability to move his left shoulder. He had developed stiffness at his shoulder joint from 2 to 3 days along with excruciating pain. There was no history of trauma or injury.
A detailed evaluation of his left shoulder was done. It revealed that he was unable to lift his hand beyond the shoulder level (110 degrees). The patient experienced pain and restriction in the joint movement beyond this range. There was a significant loss in strength in his shoulder muscles too. He had also developed postural abnormalities in his neck and upper back. A forward neck posture with a rounding of upper back was noted.
We at Physio Zone decided to treat him with Quantum Resonance Therapy (QRT). The patient was placed on a PEMF (Pulse Electro-Magnetic Field) mat and the MMO (Magneto-Mechanical Oscillator) was used to release the stiffness. The MMO was applied to the neck region initially for 10 minutes. This activated the Parasympathetic System and the muscles started to relax gradually. The next 10 minutes of the treatment was focused on the armpit (axilla) of the patient.
On the completion of the therapy, the range at the shoulder increased by a whopping 30 degrees to reach 140 degrees at the shoulder joint, in a single session. The stiffness was significantly reduced and the pain experienced was also less.
The patient was extremely happy with the unexpected immediate results. We started with the exercises immediately to maintain the range and strength achieved.
After 5 days of continuous treatment, the patient is now able to complete the full range (180 degrees) at the shoulder joint with improved strength and flexibility.
