Pain After a Stroke: Symptoms to Watch Out For
Frozen shoulder is when your shoulder becomes stiff and painful to move. This is common because the muscles and ligaments surrounding the shoulder can become very weak, stiff, or even paralyzed.
Within the shoulder joint, there is a surrounding layer of tissue called a capsule. When the ligaments around the shoulder become debilitated, the patient’s shoulder is strained. This strain can cause inflammation, damage, and weakness, which then causes the afflicted individual greater suffering.
Proper range of motion (ROM) exercises can prevent frozen shoulder after a stroke. The SaeboMAS can provide the support and facilitation a weakened shoulder needs in order to complete exercise tasks.
