The last 18 months have been like no other. The enforced inactivity of lockdown has resulted in many different challenges for us physically, mentally and socially.

Hydrodilatation is a therapeutic injection which involves injecting a combined mixture of steroid, local anaesthetic and saline solution into a frozen shoulder.
Hydrodilatation works by treating the inflammation and stretching the capsule of the joint, thereby helping to reduce the pain and improve the range of movement in the shoulder and allow a return to normal activities.
This therapeutic injection has proved to be highly successful in relieving the pain of a frozen shoulder in an out-patient setting taking around 20 – 25 mins to complete. Post-procedure, physiotherapy rehabilitation is vital to help improve range of movement in the shoulder once the pain from the inflammation has reduced.
