Frozen Shoulder

Frozen shoulder is a term used to describe a very restricted, stiff or immobilized shoulder. It can come on suddenly and last for many months until it suddenly rights itself.  Generally  it is characterized by restriction in movement, tightness in the arm muscles and pain.

With a combination of trigger point therapy and Myofascial Unwinding most clients have reported a significant decrease in their pain and increase in their range of motion in a very short period of time:

"After being told by my Doctor that I had, what could be, a frozen shoulder, I then went for X-rays and had a scan, which just confirmed I needed treatment.
They advised me that I needed to come back for another scan and have a quarter zone injection. Didn't like the sound of that.
Decided I would go back to Rebekah down at North Avoca as I knew she would be able to work her magic and get things moving again.
After just one 1 1/2 hour treatment there was much improvement. I have now been to see her 3 times and the movement in my shoulder and arm is almost back to normal. In just a matter of weeks instead of months my arm movement has gone from barely moveable and very painful, to being able to get on with life.
I Highly recommend Rebekah when I come across anyone needed this kind of remedial treatment I always pass on her name and number."

"I would like to give a testimonial to Rebecca for her great assistance to me after my arm/shoulder was broken and had to be immobilized for several weeks while the bone healed. Because of the immobilization I was unable to move my arm above shoulder height when I first had treatment with her, and since then my arm has improved to almost full-range mobility. I also have to state that in all of these manipulations Rebecca was very gentle and there was almost no discomfort involved, despite the fact that my arm was still in the process of healing. Due to being unable to continue treatments long enough to get it completely 100% functional as I live out of State, I will be visiting Rebecca for further treatment to regain my full range of movement which I am very confident she will help me to achieve.
I also had treatment with Rebecca previously to help with adjustment of my pelvis and spine after a broken hip from an old riding accident. Despite the length of time since the accident (about 20 years!), Rebecca managed to free up my spine with no actual spinal manipulation, level-up my hips and regain full rotation of my leg. Quite miraculous!
I am extremely grateful for her amazing expertise and knowledge and her skill in its application. "
