Manipulation Under Anesthesia for Shoulder Pain
MUA of the shoulder has been one of the many types of therapies that has been offered for restriction of “frozen shoulder” for many years by orthopedic surgeons. The procedure that we offer is a little less traumatic, and involves taking the shoulder through specific ranges of motion over two to three days. By gently returning the shoulder to its normal ranges, with small incremental movements rather than one giant pulling movement as others would do, not only is there less chance of tearing surrounding tissues, but there is a much greater chance for full recovery with less post care required. MUA of the shoulder as performed by our doctors is a life changing experience.
