Let’s get one thing out of the way: frozen shoulder has nothing to do with the cold! Also known by its proper name, adhesive capsulitis, frozen shoulder describes situations where your shoulder becomes stiff and immobile.

Did you know? Around half of all Australians work jobs where they spend most of their time sitting. Unfortunately, this sedentary lifestyle isn’t helping with those who suffer severe back pain.

According to the Heart Foundation, around 65.3% of Aussies over 15 either were sedentary or had low levels of exercise. That’s close to 12 million people - a little under half the entire population.

Learn about back muscle spasms from a Caulfield physiotherapist

Back pain doesn’t just make lifting things or reaching for the top shelf difficult - since your back supports your entire body, any problem with it can make even simple tasks like walking a literal pain.
