Dry Needling For Adhesive Capsulitis (FROZEN SHOULDER)

    Check out the results following a dry needling session. The wonderful woman in this video had adhesive capsulitis for more than 8 months. She was going through weekly sessions where therapists aggressively stretched her arm to help improve her range of motion. Dy needling is not the ONLY ANSWER, but it can definitely help speed up recovery.

    Muscles Treated:

    Upper Trapezius, infraspinatus, subscapularis, latissimus dorsi, deltoid
